Daylight Saving time has me floundering today. I actually managed to sleep last night … and Craig told me I wasn't allowed to get up until the crack of 8:30 am … and I obliged! I even relaxed and just stayed there until about 8:50 am - unHEARD of for me! Naturally when I got up it felt like the day was already over *lol*. By the time I had my coffee it was 10:00 … some breakfast 10:45 … walked the dog and got back at noon! Heck - practically BED time … what was the point in actually DOING anything, right? lol.
Putzed around, took the girls to the gaming store to buy them a computer game they wanted. Rebecca nailed the honours list again this term and Alicia has been getting excellent marks for weeks (her report card doesn't come out for 2 weeks yet) - so figured they were entitled to a treat / early Easter gift. That killed another hour or so. Just finished dinner, kids are gaming and shortly we'll settle down for a family movie … so thought I'd do a little "work" and post a project I made the other day. (I did make Craig laugh when I said I was going to do some work and then promptly assumed the horizontal position on the couch with my laptop. I did say "there aren't TOO many jobs you can do lying on your back! … of course SOME pay better than others" !!!!! Yes, I can hear my mother's voice "TAMARA! Inappropriate!" lol Sorry Ma hee hee)
So! Check out this little cutie that we made in class this week …
First let's give credit where credit is due. I loved this layout that was featured in the Pedal Pusher video I posted a few weeks ago. I used that as my starting off point and didn't alter it much. I also found this card from fellow demo Barb Mullikin over at www.barbstamps.com
I filled the spritzer with rubbing alcohol (dollar store) then added about 8 drops of Bermuda Bay reiker then shook it up really well. The next part was kind of scary …. make sure your work surface is well protected … hold the spritzer HIGH - like eye level high - then FULLY and COMPLETELY pus down the spritzer. He who hesitates and does a whimsy little spritz will get a drizzle leaving drips and globs of ink on your card stock. If you're going for that look fine. If not, go HARD and be fearless! lol.
For my card before I masked and spritzed I made sure the angle of the mask was the same as the angle I had cut my whisper white layer.
OK - speaking of THAT part of the card …
I started with a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White. I then took a pencil and ruler and I marked 2" on one side and 3 1/2" on the other. I drew a line to connect the dots hen cut on that line. Clear as mud? Ya, sorry - one day I'll take pictures as I go!
The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. I used Memento Ink for the images and sentiment. The images are from the Pedal Pusher free SAB set and the sentiment is from "Beatiful Ride" in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. I love this sentiment with this glitzy bike. Perfect!
I coloured the frame of the bike with my Pool Party marker and did accents with my Bermuda Bay marker. I went over everything with my wink of Stella Clear pen. I added a half doily and 16" of the Bakers Twine $8.25 for the two-pack (deal … stick …) …
… attached the pieces onto a 5 1/4" x 4" Basic Black mat … then that to a Whisper White standard base and wa-low! A FAB card for a fab friend. Any questions?
I'd like to give a shout out to my new pal over in Ohio, Stephanie B - thanks for following Stephanie :)
Guess I should go start that movie soon. Hope you had a stampy weekend - pop in again soon!
