I don't know about where you are but today was a BEAUTIFUL day!!
And this week's PaperCrafters Corner challenge was also beautiful!
Are you playing?
I started out wanting to use the flowers as inspiration but I kept being drawn to the clothes.
I stole hubby's foil tape a long time ago but never used it. Until now. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and colored the roses with my Spectrum Noir markers. I also used them on the stamp and sentiment mat.
I really love how this card turned out so I made 2 more.
For this card I colored the foil with the markers the I embossed it using a Spellbinders Impressabilities. It's kind of like a metal stencil. After embossing, without removing the impressability, I took a cotton ball and a little rubbing alcohol to remove the visible color. I love the end result.
I did the same thing with the Spellbinders butterfly die cuts. I covered two scraps of cardstock. One I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The second one I colored with purple Spectrum Noirs. I then used the rubbing alcohol to blend the color. Once the Spellbinders butterflies were cut and embossed I again used an alcohol cotton ball to remove the color. It's finished with a Unity sentiment 'inked' with the marker.
I finally finished the afghan I was making for my daughter from another mother.
I already know she loves it since I posted it on Instagram.
And, finally, thank's to my daughter I have a new addiction.
These are called Tsum Tsums. They're packages in mystery bags and you don't know what character you get......unless you can guess by feeling them. ;)
Whew! That's it for me. Dinner, made by my son, is almost ready.
Have a GREAT WEEK!
