I am still behind with my crafting time, I have not actually crafted in about 2 weeks, sad but true. I did however want to share with you my card that I made for my monthly card swap group last month.
I had so much fun doing this card. I cut the leaves using my cricut and my Mother's day cartridge, then inked them with Tim Holtz distress inks, let dry, heat imbossed the butterfly, then inked it with the distress inks, printed my sentiment on cardstock and popdotted to the card after I inked it. I did cuttlebug the background with the mesh embossing folder, love this folder but find that I hardly use it. This card is really not my style but I really loved trying the different inking techniques. When I did the leaves I inked the craft mat then sprayed with water and swooshed my leaves all around the craft mat. It gave the leaves a mottled look to them. The colors I used were broken china, tattered rose, shabby shutters, and a mixture of old paper and tea dye.
I am hoping that tomorrow I will have news about my son! If so I will be so happy!!! Until then...lets just hope today he is on the mend, cause this momma can't handle another day of playing nurse!
