Just as I suspected my inbox was full yesterday morning at work. I did manage to get through it though so we are ready for another fun filled day today! It was rainy and gloomy here all day today, sort of like my mood as of late. I was reading through the comments yesterday and I want to thank you all. Yes, I love to share my creativity with you but I also share a lot about my life and that is one of the most important parts of this blog to me. The connection that I have with so many of you. You are there with words of encouragement and support and that means so much to me. We have shared a lot with each other and I look forward to it each day as I hope that you continue to as well. That being said I am hoping that what is affecting me will work itself out. I have to have faith that it will, that’s enough of the somberness for now. I do have a fun little bit of information to share, I have over 40,000 followers on Pinterst! WHAT?! I still can’t believe it. So if you don’t follow me head on over and do. It’s jrk912. 🙂
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Marker Fun challenge. I wanted to do something other than color with them so this is what I came up with. The base for today’s card is a piece of Elegant Eggplant Card Stock. I cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″ for my background. All of the images are from the Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2014 Holiday Supplement Catalog. The snowflakes are heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To add the color to the background I took the second largest Clear Block E and used my Elegant Eggplant and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers to color the block with stripes of alternating color. and a little spray of water from my Stampin’ Spritzer so they would absorb into the Watercolor Paper easier. I left the block on the table and pressed the Watercolor Paper into it, lifted it off and misted the block again and repeated the process. After I lifted it up the second time I was happy with the results. I stamped the greeting on Watercolor Paper too in Elegant Eggplant and Night of Navy and used the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits to cut it out. It’s adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and some Basic Jewels Rhinestones are adhered over the dots. I backed the paper with a piece of Night of Navy and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up off the base. A few Frosted Sequins adhered to the centers of the snowflakes with Crystal Effects finish the card. I love the way the colors turned out on the Watercolor Paper, it almost gives a windy feel to it. I really hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Marker Fun challenge. Be sure and stop by the blog to see what the rest of the design team have done and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your take on the challenge. As always, I appreciate your visit and hope that you have a very nice Tuesday! 🙂
