I'm still down and under with pneumonia. I keep waiting for the day I wake up and feel half good instead of fully miserable. Today I feel half better than yesterday, so that's a step in the right direction, right? My part-time nanny didn't have school today, so offered to come some extra hours. That meant I got a little stamping time in the morning before I feel so miserably exhausted I can't do anything but lay down and try not to cough.
For the sketch, I pulled out the Peaceful Medallions set. I've been watching some old youtube videos and was reminded of the poppin' pastels technique, so did that hear with Versamark ink and Pan Pastels. The blue layer started out white and the brown layers were crumb cake, then I just stamped randomly in Versamark ink and rubbed lightly with the pan pastels. Love the end result. I shabbied up the layers with a bit of distressing, then added a resist chipboard star, colored with pan pastels and lightly glittered.
That's all for me. Hope you have a wonderful start to your weekend! And as my boys happily said this morning... bye by winterday, hello springday!
