No significant stamping on this card! I remembered that I had a few Glimmer Screen Stencils and Glimmer Mist bottles from Tattered Angels and thought I would play a little. The colour yellow was still quite vivid in my mind so I went with that and paired it with some Graphite mist and a deep grey (I think it's called Smokey Grey) cardstock from PTI.
Paper: Neenah; PTI
Ink: Glimmer Mist (Graphite & Yellow Daisy); Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: WPlus9 (Sweet Nothings)
Other: Glimmer Screens stencil (Fanciful Stencils); MFT Rolled Flower; Black gem
As you know with Glimmer Mist you get the most beautiful shine, but unfortunately that is tough to capture on camera, so you just have to believe me that this card is "shining"!
After putting my stencil down (I used the large butterfly in the set with only three quarters of the butterfly actually showing), I then spritzed lightly with the yellow and then very lightly with the graphite. I die cut the rolled flower and sprayed it with the same inks, just more Graphite, and then rolled it and adhered a black pearl to the centre before adhering it to the card.
I love this sentiment set by WPlus9 called "Sweet Nothings", the font is simply beautiful and the sentiments are very thoughtful.
Another CAS card to add to my arsenal as proof that I am more CAS than anything else!
It's going to be super hot here again today, so hopefully we will be in the pool a bit later!
We met my daughter's teacher last night, it went well except that it was so hot, some problem with the AC in the school. When we left to go home our car said it was 113F! Both my daughter and I get a bit cranky in the extreme heat unless we are in water, so, needless to say, she lost the plot and starting really acting up and did something that we were not happy with. So, trying to show her that there are consequences to all our behaviours, we took away a "priviledge", and we said that she could not swim when we got home! OMG! It was the end of her world! (Between you and I, to hold up that punishment was the toughest thing ever simply because I could totally relate with what she must have been feeling in that extreme heat - you know, like witholding water from a really thirsty person!) That's when I start questioning whether I am doing things right as a parent! Is that incidence going to be THE ONE that sticks in her head forever and makes her hold a grudge against me or see me as the wicked witch and never forgive me! Can anyone relate to what I am saying?
Anyway, let's hope Natasha is not cranky today as I really don't want to withold this from her again! It's just too tough for me!
Wishing you all a fantastic day!
