Enough about that. Onto cards and such (the keepers of my sanity). I missed the Muse challenge. Just couldn't get a photo taken even though I had a card made, or a post written until now. Sorry about that Muse friends. I did manage to get a couple two three cards made while company was out visiting other family members, so will post them before I miss any more deadlines! First up is a card for the current MFT Sketch Challenge. Had something completely different in mind, but this one demanded to be made. When pings ping, I must obey the call, lol!
Here's what those pesky pings demanded:
Stuck pretty close to the sketch with this one. All papers, except the Bazzill pink base and bits are scraps. Sorry, I don't know who made them. The navy flag is MFT, as is the sentiment which is stamped with some Jeni Bowlin ink. A few pearls, some seriously old felt flowers and a bit of Michaels ribbon. Irl, this is really happy looking.
Next, I wanted to play along with Tag You're It Challenge. I was on a roll, and this one pretty much made itself...using my hands of course, lol! Here's the inspiration tag created by Erin Thiem. How fun is this?
Since I wasn't sure when my company was returning, I didn't have time to haul out my Spackle and make a bigger mess than I already had, so I went in a bit of a different direction.
All papers except the Michaels white base are once again, scraps. The flourish behind the tag is an ancient rub-on. Someone out there in blogland used a rub-on last week on a card, and it inspired me to drag out the box full of them and see what I could find. And if it weren't so darn gloomy outside, you'd see that a portion of the flourish has some green in it... Some SC star sequins, as well as the tag die. A TT die sentiment, and some RC hearts. A bit of Michaels ribbon and some Twinery twine. Oh, and a hexie die from MFT.
And since I have an hour or two before CASology closes, and since I've a card to share, why the heck not?! There's a story behind this card...My really nice neighbor, Michael, brought over some freshly caught Walleye after one of his fishing forays. It was fantastic. So for a thank you, I thought I'd whip up a card. He's such a nice neighbor. Fits the "Shape" Cue card nicely, I think...
Found a cut file in the Silhouette store, and decided it would make a nice stencil. Used some ME Ocean ink, and some PTI Ripe Avocado ink, plus a bit of gold tossed in for good measure. A dash of Copic aqua colored marker to add a bit of something. And lastly, the sentiment is MFT with Versafine ink. The shape of a fish in watery droplets. Works for me. Well, since I've kept you long enough, I'll stop now. Happy dances everyone.
