Hello! I’m still here…thanks for your patience! It was a whirlwind of travel for me in the last while, but that’s often what summer is like, I suppose?! I spent some time in the Austin, Texas area (because it’s just not hot & humid enough in Southern Ontario for me….*sarcastic laugh*). I was officially there to participate in my friend Lydia’s “Ublue Unwind” Crafting Retreat, but really, I was there to visit with old friends, make new friends and eat. I did however manage to learn a thing or two while I was there, outside of “why is it so hard to get a PokemonGo account in the first few days of release”. The card above is proof! A fun technique that creates an interesting card and is not over the top difficult to reproduce. We used “inchies” at the retreat, but I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut into 1″ squares here at home, because that’s what I had. The sponged colours are Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo, the images on the squares and splatters are from Timeless Textures (available in clear mount or wood mount)and the cardbase is Tip Top Taupe. The words are from the Thoughtful Banners set and some Bitty Butterflies add extra interest.
If you’re interested in learning new techniques and building up your card stash, consider attending August’s Monthly Card Class. Held August 3 at 1pm or 7pm, cost is $20 and includes all supplies to make four different cards (this will be one of them…). Registration and payment due by August 1 – contact me to reserve your spot!
