Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and readers! Are you all doped up on turkey yet? Me, I'm a little doped up on muscle relaxants because my poor back decided to remind me it was there and spasmed out on Saturday. It hasn't caused me problems for a few years so why it decided to pick the long weekend I'll never know!
Usually it is my lower back that gives out, but this time it is my shoulder and neck which has radiated into my right arm. YA, that arm! So I'm gonna keep the typing to a minimum.
Today, I'm gonna show you one of the cards I made for my mom's stash. It is an Impression Obsession stamp that I bought in Novi and is probably meant for Valentine's Day, but works equally well for anniversaries I think.
Kimabella's GORJUS cards inspired me to pull out my Tombow markers for this one. I used them a lot when I first started stamping but they have gone to the wayside now. Gosh I wish I had all the time in the world just to use everything I have in my arsenal!
I stamped this with versamark on watercolor paper and embossed with gold EP. I then coloured with the markers and blended it out a bit with a wet paintbrush. Clearly I'm a bit rusty with the tombows and forgot some of my lessons learned from the past which caused some of reds to bleed out. Oh well...I'll pretend it was intentional!
Did you know that Emily is gonna be at Scrapfest in Oshawa this weekend with a new release in tow and I was lucky enough to colour a couple of them up! I'll have sneak peeks for you Wednesday and Thursday, then back again on Friday with my Ketto challenge card. Wait till you see that one! It's gonna be another something different and I was fortunate enough to get it done just before the shoulder and arm gave out!
Before I go, this is the sympathy I got from my Bessie girl yesterday! I get all my pillows set up on the sofa and turn around to get the heating pad and in a split second she was on there clearly thinking I did this for her!
She's such a funny girl!
