Also...don't forget that today is the last day to enter the Skipping Stones Design Stamp Set Giveaway!
I was blessed with time to create over the weekend and it was truly fabulous, let me tell you! I SOOOO enjoyed my time! I posted a card I made on Saturday and today I am sharing with you a piece I put together yesterday.
This piece began with an urge to cover that little box with the brand new tissue tape that I picked up at Micheal's on Saturday. It just sort of began to flow from there...
The clock and wings are Scrolls Work Stamps and both are stamped in Momento ink - even on that silver metallic paper, the Momento worked wonderfully! I used images from a fabulous collage sheet from Retro Cafe. I love these!
I added a couple of pearls to finish the arms and inked the background and the tissue tape covered box to death. I love Distress Inks! HA!
To achieve this look, I sprayed a liquid ink, Radiant Rain by Luminarte for Creative Imaginations, and then, while it was still wet, I blew it in various directions with a straw. *Funny Story.* I was looking for a straw and all I could find was a reusable plastic bendy straw that came with a cup that I had in the 'extra cups' cabinet in the kitchen. I figured, whatever...any straw should do the trick, so I pulled it and went to my studio. It whistled. Loudly. HA! I shifted the first spot of ink and the first thing out of my mouth was, "REALLY???" HA! Then The Hubbums quickly questioned what the HECK I was doing to create such a horrible noise! HAHAHA! It was pretty hilarious, actually. Hmmm...maybe you had to be there.
ANYWAY...you can also push the ink around a bit with a toothpick or the end of a paintbrush or whatever you might have handy. I added to the wording already on the card to create my title.
So...that's what I did this weekend! Fun stuff! And I love it! Just say'n.
Happy Monday, folks!
