10 days! Ten days until the first set of movers come to pack up my family’s household goods for our final (prayerfully) international move. We won’t have our things back with us for 3-6 months.
So. I need to be reminded. The Bible says that God is good all the time. Did you know, that according to the Guinness World Records that, “Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world’s best–selling and most widely distributed book.”
When all around me things seems dark and impossible…….
Also, I’m currently covered with nasty itchy horrid hives from an allergic reaction to, I believe, the hazelnut trees that surround my house. So, I’ve been distracting myself with organizing my craft supplies and doing a little crafting.
I love ink blending, so I incorporated that into my reminder.
There’s still so much left to do, getting ready for an agricultural inspection, separating out what will go in the next smaller shipment (bedding, towels, kitchen supplies etc. – via plane), what we’ll put into our luggage, maybe mail some things to ourselves………etc.so, it is truly…
Hi! I’m here Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin. 🙂 This is a great idea that Ksenija had to help us get back into the creative mode after Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. I’ve been having a lot of fun CASEing multiple cards from those offered up at Sweet Kobylin.
First, I reverse stenciled by inking up the stencil with a black ink pad. Then I printed with the inked-up stencil. Then, I sponged on the red, blue, yellow and green inks. Next, I traced over the printed outlines with a black alcohol marker to darken the printed image. I added white highlights by doing some more tracing and drawing with a gel pen.
Hi! I’m here with a card inspired by several fun Fall Challenges.
I created the plaid leaf by first sponging an ombre background (red to yellow from the stem to the leaf tip). Then I repeatedly masked off portions of the leaf and sponged on ink. I love using this technique.
I used a “Thankful” die from CUTplorations.
I sponged on a red band and attached the white panel to the orange cardstock.
I attached the leaf and the die cut with foam tape.
I really like this card. A plaid leaf!? Sponging, ink blending, lots of red (my favorite color to use when making cards), ombre Autumn colors? I don’t normally make the same card twice, but I may have to repeat this one. 🙂
