I am usually all about balance and after looking at the greeting I should have had someone-else's assistance to help me see that I needed to reverse the salutation with the embellishment and clean out my ears to get my equilibrium back...

Recently I commented "So right, it sure needs to happen more often!!!" to this Facebook post ...
I meant what I said, but it bothered me that I hadn't put some type of action behind those written words. So, when I sawthis tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. I decided give it a whirl and make a simple card that would have, hopefully, a WOW impact and put my words into action through my paper crafting.
So to all of you who have been or are in my life... This is my way of saying THANK YOU, YOU ARE TRULY APPRECIATED !!!
I experimented with many different colors and this is my favorite.
Stamp Sets: Retired Simple Sayings II
Inks: Memento Black, Reinkers ~ Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry Strawberry Slush and pigment Whisper White Craft ink,
Paper: SU! Watercolor Paper, Black Berry Bliss, Non-SU! Canvas paper for the card (this paper is the bomb) !!!
Accessories: Aqua Painters, Basic Rhinestones colored with a Yellow Sharpie, Tombow all purpose glue, Acetate, Bigz Die Circles 2, in-color sequins, sponger dauber and good ole' H2O.
I still have a few more color combinations I want to try and then complete all the cards.
- As a side note: I did not follow the tutorial exactly, because when I was filling in the circles with the white pigment ink it was too thick. I realized that my pad was very saturated and decided to only go around the edges of each circle. It would have worked perfectly, per the tutorial, if I stamped off most of the ink off the dauber before filing in the circles.
Just Yappin' bout Stampin' ~~~ until next time.
