I just LOVE Wasabi and Slate together! That was where I started with today's card - my color combination and a sketch. I wanted to try out using same color layers - one with texture one without. I sanded the layer with the Harlequin embossing to reveal a little of the white on the cardstock and to differnetiate the layers a little more. What do you think?
I used the stamp from Beautiful Botanicals - my flower puff. I know it cracks some of you up when I call it that - I guess I just dont think of it as a weed! I stamped it with Slate ink. I further embellished the layer by edge distressing and with the addition of Onyx Bakers Twine. The white scallop layer was also cut using the smallest of the scallop border set dies. The greeting from Essential Sentiments is added with a piece of 3D foam adhesive.
It feels great to be back on track and getting things done in my studio. It seems like so long since I had a schedule that I wanted to stick to and I hope that I can keep it up!
Yesterday was the last day off for the kiddos. Logan was of with one of his buddies so Laney and I spent the day together playing in my studio. She has really blossomed as an artist in the last year. Yesterday she was just drawing whatever she could find to draw. I had forgotten that I had purchased some coloring sheets for her and logan a while ago and she found them - and decided to draw different parts of them on her own. They are GOOD! Reminds me of myself when I was her age - drawing all the time.
I really want to do some art things with her - and I think she is finally to the point where we can. I got her started on a project and we were so into it last night that when it was time for bed we realized she forgot to take her shower! SO funny! SO she got to bed a little late - but I hope she is excited to get back to it when she gets home from school.
I hope today finds you BLESSED beyond measure. I was yesterday - and know that today God has even more in store for me!
