HI there 🙂
I had a chance to work on a project today and can say I really had fun. I have been mulling this card around in my head for a bit now and I am very pleased that it turned out, better than I had imagined. I am still having this stupid headache but decided to hold off on the doctor til tomorrow. I had Sierra for a bit this afternoon and she was running a fever and I didn’t want to take her out with me. She got her valentine’s day cards made up. A very productive day. Well here are the details of my card. Whisper white cardstock base. I wanted a weathered wood look so I did the direct to paper technique with Sahara sand, going gray and creamy caramel inks from up. next I used the wood grain background stamp inked with white craft ink and white embossing powder. Now for the main image The Zebra I stamped with black versa fine ink and used watercolor pencils and a aqua painter to color the image. I used crystal effects ( glossy accents ) for the water and put a tiny sprinkle if fine glitter to look like the shimmer you see when the sun hits the water just right. I matted the image with black,basic gray and then black again then adhered to the weather wood panel. I have several ideas in my head for the coloring challenge on Leslie’s blog. I have to say I think the mojo is working the past few days. hope you are all having some crafty fun too. I know the photos look the same but I was trying to get the water and the woodgrain to show up with the pictures.
Love and hugs,
