September, really! I need to get a job. When I worked the weeks were endless and weekends, especially long holiday weekends, could never come soon enough. Now that I’m retired the weeks and months just wiz by. I need to get a job and slow the clock down.
My card today was inspired by and made possible by the LOVELY and EXTREMELY GENEROUS DI. When I complained of my unsuccessful attempts with the brayer and assorted blending techniques Di sent me these wonderful Inkylicious Ink Dusters.
Thank You Di!! I love them although I’m not crazy about TH distress inks. I only bought them this week but they seem rather dry. I can actually see a line showing the pads aren’t completely saturated. I found I had to pounce on the pad quite hard before I got ink on my brush and I got some bristle marks when I pounced on my card. I didn’t have the proper color for this card but in playing I found my old Adirondack inks were much easier to work with giving me a much softer result. Back to my card. When Di posted her card here Annie suggested a rainbow. I remembered an old paint company’s ad where they’d used butterflies to show their rainbow of colors available.
I set about to recreate a scale down version of that ad. I pulled out my scraps and punched MS butterflies, then put them all in a Swiss dot EF and ran them thru the Cuttlebug then glued them to my cloud background. The sentiment is a clear $1 stamp.
I am entering this in Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge Week 34
