I worked on Mother’s Day cards this week like many of you. Here is what I came up with.
This one I made to enter into The Paper Variety’s current challenge. The challenge is to use mists, inks or paints. I wanted to add just a touch of paint to stamp my greeting on. But in the process I squeezed my paint tube so hard that I ended up with paint exploded all over me. I don’t think that is quite what they had in mind with a messy challenge. Luckily I was in good enough of a mood that I didn’t use any explitives, but instead carefully reached into my pocket to grab my phone and snap a couple of pictures. Witness…
That was only about half the mess. The rest landed on my pants, the floor and my table. I’m happy to report that everything came out in the wash!

Next in line
I just played with my stamps and copics. I am still trying to figure the markers out. I thought I would be able to blend different shades better, but so far I can blend similar shades but not very different ones. I’m still exploring!
