It looks like there's school in our district today again - much to the disappointment of my youngest. Poor kid - not only did we have a blizzard on the weekend, but we had a sloppy mess of snow & rain overnight, and still no snow day. I'm thinking the school morning routine is going to suck extra hard this morning....
On that depressing note, let's celebrate! lol
At Shopping our Stash this week, we want to see your BIRTHDAY cards/projects using up your stash! I got messy making mine & had a fabulous time. I started with this bird die-cut from an old card front ages ago that I found in my drawer of stickers:
Supplies: recycled card front; standard small circle Nesties; lacy circle Nesties; Mustard Seed distress ink; Grey Flannel Memento ink; Annabelle Stamps (music); Palette Noir ink; Paper Smooches (sentiment); black rhinestones; crochet by me; paper from Pink Paislee
I didn't have any paper that seemed to match or complement the bird image, but I found some cool cream-coloured ledger paper from Pink Paislee, and went to town on it with Mustard Seed & my trusty ink blending tool. If you click to view the picture full-size you can still make out the original detail. I stamped the music background over top of the yellow ink while it was still damp, and it made for a cool distressed effect. I am really happy with how this turned out!
You can click up top on "Design Teams" to see a full list of the designers on my teams at any time.
This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until Monday February 18th. Don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to!
Remember how I said today's morning routine wasn't going to be fun? The whole time I've been typing up this post, my youngest has been screaming about the school being liars, and the weather is atrocious, and he wore his pajamas inside out so why is there school? (Local tradition, that last one...) Yeah. Definitely going to be a rough morning! Hard to stay focused when you're being yelled at.
