Happy Friday my friends!  Today I’ve been hard at work after two days that had me out of the office a ton.  Between me and two of the girls, there were four doctor’s appts. (nothing serious, just ear aches, chirpractor and cavity fillings).  Good grief!  I’m happy to be in my stamp room today.

While I was out and about, I told a friend of mine that I signed up for an art class in July.  I must have been on the edge of my seat telling her about it.  She looked at me with a funny look on her face and said, “You’d probably choose doing that over a day at the spa, wouldn’t you?”.

I almost fell out of my chair laughing.  Well, DUH!  Yeah!  hahahaha!

What about you?  Art/paper crafting/mixed media class or Spa?

For this card, I used Tattered Angel’s Glimmer Mist and a stencil to make the background.  Then, I used the Suncatcher stencil and sponged versamark over it.  Next, I covered it in black embossing powder and heated it.  This gave a neat shadow effect to the flower.

An Embossed background and a banner with a white embossed greeting finish off this card.

Supplies:

  • Special Wishes Stamp Set (Penny Black)
  • Cardstock:  Marina Mist, Whisper White, Basic Black (SU)
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Accessories:  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, White Embossing Powder, Chevron Embossing Folder

 

Hope you are inspired!  Oh, before I go!  Did you see the news!!!??????

    If only we could combine the two and have a spa crafting day! Like you I’d choose crafting but it’s a very close race! Love the card, great colours.

    Once I went to a scrapbooking retreat and they brought in a message therapist we had the opportunity to have a 30 min or 60 min massage. THAT was awesome!!

    Hi Catherine ! Your first card was nice but I must say that I liked the second one better. I always want my cards to be a masterpiece, but it does not always turn out as well I had hoped for. Keep up the good work, Catherine !
