Seeeee.... I was right, wasn't I? It's a real beauty. Took me a bit to make mine. It's about the third or fourth incarnation, but I finally got something I was satisfied with. So join me in playing along, why don't you. You've got more than a week to get your mojo going and get a card done. I know Anita would love it!
So this is mine:
I started with a Neenah white base, and then using watercolor paper, did a sort of ombre wash with my Dollar Store watercolors. I cut the design with my Silhouette and left a few pieces of the gold in place. The 'birthday' die is from SC, and the 'wishes' stamp is PTI. The gold paper is from Michaels, and if you look closely, the blue 'birthday' is the leftover watercolored piece. I shadow stamped the 'wishes' using Studio G, and some Stampabilities inks. That's pretty much it.
DH is editing a manuscript from the 1940s for publication. It's a copy of a mimeographed copy. We tried to scan it, have it scanned professionally, but to no avail. So guess who's typing....yep. 300+ pages. I've got a third of them done, but I really want to get it done before the end of the month. And Kaylin's scrapbook, with about 15 pages to do. And a notecard set for a friend. The only way I think I can get this all done in the next couple of weeks is to put my blog on hiatus for the next two weeks. I'll be peeping in at your blogs, and might even leave a comment or two, but I won't be posting until I get my tasks completed. So don't worry if you don't see me. I'll be back, I promise. Until then, happy dances everyone.
