Sometimes….I get an idea. That idea doesn’t get properly thought out. Bringing that idea into reality…..turns into…..”What The Heck Was I Thinking?!”
I looked through the Operation Write Home card sketches. My search was to find a sketch that has many elements, therefore, I would be using up more scrap papers. Brilliant!
I chose card sketch #10 from Operation Write Home.
The stamp set I chose to use for some birthday cards is an old Stampin’ Up! Hostess Set titled “Birthday Bakery”.
I have a tag punch I bought from Stampin’ Up! in about 2009. This is the old style punch. I’m pretty sure they don’t sell this style any longer. The tag measures a tiny bit over one inch wide and is 1-1/4 inches long.
I’m busting out my Copic markers that were a gift to me from my friend, Maureen C. Mathis, several years ago. I’ve not really used these markers to color many images. It is time that I face me fear of coloring and just get with the program.
I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of using these markers. I was even pleased with my results. The images look like illustrations that would be in a children’s book. Okay, maybe that is just a bit of an exaggeration of my coloring skills.
This is where I thought I had “Done gone and lost my mind”. I did something that I absolutely, positively, beyond a shadow of a doubt, HATE to do. I fussy cut around every stinkin’ one of those images.
The results of this crazy bit of business has turned out pretty good. I like the result. And I do believe that I may have earned a new title. “The Queen of Crooked”! Oh well. Let’s just call it “Whimsical”.
Over the next couple days I will be putting together a tutorial on how I made this card front. I’ve taken step by step photos of the process and will be using those photos to create a video.
At this rate….I think it might be the year 2025 when I use up all of my scrap papers.
