This way —>

Tomorrow I leave for Chicago yay! I’m looking forward to seeing my Fawnies and other crafty friends too.

I am currently participating in the Stretch Your Stamps class. I haven’t been able to make too much, but I am absorbing all the lessons. Here is one card I made after watching Day 1 about background stamps.


I can’t say that I “stretch” this background stamp on this card, but it began as a different idea that just wasn’t going to work, so I salvaged my beautiful background and made this card. I’ll “stretch” it eventually. 🙂

The background is colored with distress inks over the clear embossed image, then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist for shine (it’s much shiner in real life). The wood veneer heart is colored with picked raspberry distress ink and glam pink stickles. The first part of the sentiment is from the new heyday stamps from Hero Arts and I hand wrote the second part.

Thanks for stopping by today! Next stop for me Chi-town! 🙂
