Well I can hardly even see out the window, it's coming down so hard. Some areas of the garden have standing water and our pond is full. So what is a crafter to do? Make cards, that's what! Here's the second post today with a cutie I just purchased. She is called "Clare Ready for School." The layer behind the Spellbinders die is a Core'dinations paper which I embossed with rulers from Sizzix and then sanded down to show the inner layer. A really fun technique. They actually have so many nice papers.....ones that match the Tim Holtz Distress line, a line called Black Magic, pastels, papers already embossed with textured backgrounds etc. So many possibilities.
I colored little Clare with Copics and one other time I used the little "eyelet" technique and someone asked how I did it. Where there is the ruffle, I just used white craft paint and either a pin or tiny pointed tool to make dots where the eyelet would be. Easy peasy. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp on a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die.
Wish I could be this productive every day! Be safe and dry!
