The only one I know at this very moment who is under the weather is my own dear husband. Hopefully it won’t be too many more weeks before we can find out what’s ailing him and get on the road to fixing it.
So it was DH of whom I was thinking when I made this card, though I’m not sure he’d appreciate the "feminine" look. He’s more the kind to enjoy a card made with "To The Nines" specialty paper. Maybe I’ll have to make him one of those tomorrow.
But for today, there was a challenge on the blog, "Diva’s Coffee Break Designs," to make a card using specific colors, not a specific sketch. The colors are Rose Red, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow.
My card uses a set that’s a couple of years old, Fun and Fast Notes. It’s really a very versatile set–and yes, you can make fun cards with this set very fast. Each of 8 images comes with a greeting attached. For this set, I cut the greetings from the rubber before I mounted the stamps onto their blocks. I mounted the images as intended, but then mounted the greetings on the ends of the wood blocks. This way I can more easily stamp the image in one place and the greeting in the other. Or use different greetings for different images! In the case of this image, the greeting and image went together very nicely, thank you.
This also turned out to be a good challenge for me today because I needed some quiet "down" time. Just standing at my work table carefully coloring in the line art in the image, as well as placing the little dots of Regal Rose color at the intersection of each of the grids made with this Sizzix Texturz Plate, was very soothing.
So tomorrow I’ll try something a bit more masculine! Check back then!
