One of goals for 2010 is to move "outside" my comfort zone. While I am comfortable creating cards, scrapbooks and altered art, I am not so comfortable putting it "out there" for the world to see. Starting this blog is one of the ways I using to reach my goal, but still my blog is still in my relatively "safe" world - since everyone leaving comments are family or friends.
Another path I plan wander down is "entering" some challenges. I found Lyneen's blog, "I am Dreaming of Castles" (http://dreamingofcastles.blogspot.com/) and she conveniently has a list of other blogs with challenges for each day of the week. (Thank you Lyneen!!!) From Lyneen's blog I went to the Sketch Saturday blog (http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/).
This week's theme is Whimsical rubber stamp images. This is what I came up with:
Here is what I used on my card:
"Bug Journey" stamp - Penny Black (1996) Yard sale find!
Sentiment stamp - Art Impression - 1998
Stazon Ink - Jet Black
Kimberly water color pencils
Azure (Dark Blue) paper - The Paper Company
all other paper - unknown - it all came out of my scrap bin including the card base
I also used the following Ranger products
Alcohol Inks and Pens
Distress Embossing Ink
Embossing powder -Seafoam White
Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
What do you think? Any suggestions? Any suggestion on how to keep embossing powder where you want it instead of where it wants to go? Thanks for looking and please leave a comment or two.
Take care, be safe.
