Good Morning! Happy Tuesday. The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's so much fun. I love all the circles and dots. Of course, you don't have to take the sketch literally, it'll fun no matter how you interpret it.
My card, I have to say is really lacking in the creativity area. It was such a busy weekend there was no time to play and Monday was super exhausting, so when I sat at my craft table and started on the card, I was Midas' evil twin - everything I touched turned to sludge. So I pulled out some ancient stamps from SU! and played with the emboss resist technique. It's still not what I had in my head but it's still a bright, cheery, sweet and simple card that will be great as a note card.
So my dreams of grandeur was to replicate a card that Dawn from WPlus9 created - using a simple technique to create the bokeh effect. Well, let me tell you, you need to have a good white pigment ink pad - one that isn't called soft cloud. It's too soft. I had a beautiful-ish watercolor background and then proceeded to ruin it with the white ink that I have. It just didn't work. Then I tried to cut the sentiment so that I had the inked background "come through" the lettering of the sentiment and it didn't cut clean through so this is what I came up with.
Again, it's not a bad card, it's just not what I envisioned to try and share.
Please head on over to TMS and join us - I'm sure what you come up with will be fantastic!!
