I'm still stamping away and decided to continue my streak today. I figure if I need to rest I might as well have fun doing it, right? Hopefully the creative process will be relaxing and get my dang blood pressure back down! :) Today I finally had an idea for the LeAnne's sketch at the Paper Players. I've been running ideas through my head all week but nothing clicked until today. I'm glad I waited because I really LOVE how this one turned out!
I pulled out the lovely Everyday Enchantment paper that I had left from Sale-a-bration this year and everything just seemed to click from there! My sponges and shimmer paint have been a bit neglected lately, so I grabbed those too! I am not a great vintage/distressed cardmaker, but I try to pick up hints from my buddy Ann Schach and I've come a long way from where I started! I used the shimmer paint on my Very Vanilla circle and then sponged over to get a bit of the faux mother-of-pearl technique. It works better on glossy card stock, but I didn't think that would look good with the my design. It still has a nice shimmer even though you probably can't tell from the picture! I sponged pretty much everything with Crumb Cake ink, including the ribbon. All in all, I'm smiling and happy with this one. I don't say that often, so I should probably put this one in my keep box so I can look back at it when I need motivation. :)
