Typical Thursday around here ... I've been accomplishing a LOT of seriously unimportant things whilst procrastinating on prepping for my events this weekend. Although I DO feel good that my overflowing recipe book is now somewhat organized ... I PROBABLY should have spent my time doing other things. That recipe book has been a work-in progress since ... umm ... July ... of 2012!!! In hindsight I'm thinkin' THAT little gem could have waited another day or two. Hopefully the 670 children at Leo Nickerson School will appreciate my organizational skills tomorrow when their "Make & Take" project is more of a "Look & Walk Away" project *lol*.
Meh ... you know me ... it will somehow all come together (not really sure WHEN since I've been awake since about 2:30 am, desperately need a nap and tonight is "Rebecca Night" meaning we will be baking ... not prepping!! ... but it'll happen ... somehow ...)
SO! Rather than going down to prep NOW I figured prcrastinating another half hour wouldn't hurt ... so I'll share a fab little card I put together last night (the girls and I were SUPPOSED to be making a banner for Alicia's birthday party next weekend ... but while they fiddle farted around coming downstairs I managed to squeeze in a card ... oh ... but we DID start the banner so stay tuned for THAT project in the next 2 weeks!) ... hmmm ... a little more rambly and *Squirrel*y today than usual, aren't I? ... Good thing I can type as fast as my mind switches gears .....
Here's the card:
Once the folder was all inked up I simply turned it over and used it like a stamp on my whisper white layer. In order to get an even, firm pressure across the whole image I rolled my brayer over it a few times:
When I lifted the folder this is the background I ended up with:
I added a frame of Old Olive using one of the Deco Labels Framelits, added a strip of Real Red scrap that was sitting in front of me, popped the sentiment up on dimensionals and added a few rhinetones.
