I am having a great day today! We put a bird feeder in front of my craft room window and I get to watch birds when I’m at the craft table. It’s wonderful. They aren’t used to it yet so they keep watching me through the window.
I made a lot of cards today. I love when the ideas flow smoothly and I get stuff done! A great music selection helps a lot, too. Lately my favorite is Rag N Bone Man radio on Pandora. I’ve found so many new artists on this station that I really love.
This card is going to my friend, Christy. It just reminds me of her so I’m going to send her this one and the one following. I made the backgrounds with my new Brusho watercolour crystals. I’m still learning how best to manipulate them, but I am improving every time. I do need to remember to wear gloves though! They stain my fingertips.
This one is made similarly to the above card. Brusho crystals on the background. I then stamped the trees across the bottom and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment at the top. The white dots are a combination of stamped gesso, topped with acrylic paint. I do wish they had been slightly brighter, but for my first time doing this technique, I’m pleased.
Look for more cards tomorrow! I’ve been having so much fun today!
