I have a long list of crafty items I need and want to make! Do you? Now to find the time.
I have been playing with my alcohol inks this morning, thinking about making some backgrounds for some ATC's. I made one background that I really liked and decided to make something with it which I will enter both for the current May Hero Arts contest and the new Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday challenge which is to use stickers or rub-ons.
Paper: Glossy white cardstock; K & Co. (patterned paper)
Ink: White Stazon; Versafine Onyx Black; Adirondack Alcohol Inks (Denim, Stream & Aqua)
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Jute; Bead (stash); Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Sticker
I created the background with Denim, Stream and Aqua Alcohol inks and some blending solution on glossy white cardstock. Next I stamped the rose from the Hero Arts "Two Birds" cling stamp with white Stazon. I paper pieced the ladybug from the Hero Arts "Antique Engravings" clear set.
I added a little strip of patterned paper from K & Company at the bottom and a bit of Jute plus a black pearl. And the final touch was the sticker from Cosmo Cricket. I love what it says, "unique", that is what we all are!
Wishing you a fabulous Sunday! We could not have asked for a more day!
I will however leave you with this personal picture today! I was not sure whether to cry or laugh on Thursday night! Take a guess, here is a clue, it involves a 5 year old!!!
