On Tuesday I said something to my husband about it being Monday and the start of the week. He looked at me with a look I anticipate more and more, that ***OH Honey, you are really losing it *** look and kindly informed me that it was Tuesday.
So don't be surprised that the Tuesday challenge appears on my blog on Thursday. At least I think it's Thursday! Oh my, I really am losing it!
So which do you prefer, sketchy or plain? Feel free to grab the images.
After seeing this card, I had to try a layered scene. This is what I came up with.
Directions are for the bare branch tree card. I cut the white cardstock in the shapes that I wanted for the sketch challenge and then used just a tiny bit of double stick tape under each one to position them.. . I used a punched out piece of post it to mask the moon I used a brayer to put the blue on the top and the brown on the bottom, but you could do it with a sponge or cotton ball. I took off the mask and stamped bare trees all over the layered card with my dark brown ink. I then used the same stamp and stamped with purple, kind of filling in empty spaces. Then I took it apart and put the dark color layer behind each piece which hid the edges that were left from stamping over the edges of the layers and re - layered it with permanent adhesive. There were big huge white spaces so it was easy to place everything back
That isn't a typo, it is not a card for a dog lover, it is a card for a dog. Delores will be ONE and my friend Lisa does the whole deal with a cake and party hats. It was a good chance to practice coloring with my copics.
You can grab my cat outline if you want, it is a jpeg. This clock was so cute, I debated getting Mike to cut out some wood and insert a clock. Instead I made it into a card with a drop down tail that folds up to fit in an envelope.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
