Today I got my first COVID-19 vaccination. Fairly painless but am starting to feel a little bit tired. I don’t like to sleep during the day as it mucks up my night time sleep patterns, so I’m crafting to keep myself awake.
First up is a card for:
- CAS on Friday #206 – The colour Green
- Just Us Girls #587 – Kind/Kindless
- Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #116
- Less is more #444 – Favourite Technique
I ink smooshed my Kaleidacolor ‘Caribbean Sea’ ink pad onto some water colour paper and then die cut the Paper Roses ‘Leafy Circle’ die. I added this die to a plain white card ase with a bit of twine and a sentiment from Uniquely Creative. I love ink smooshing as each time you do it you get a different result.
Next is a card for:
For this card, I made a second ink smooshed background, this time just a little bit more subtle and added another die cut on top, this time its a person chillaxing in a hammock under some palm tress. The sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘Timeless Tropical’. This is what I see myself doing this next summer season.
Next is a card for:
- Inspired by #177
- The Male Room #151 – Dads & Grandads
- AAA Cards #191 – No layer & Opt twist hexagons
- Cardz 4 Guyz #272 – Father’s Day
- The Alphabet Challenge – E is for Easy Simple Card
I did a bit of ink blending over a hexagon stencil with Stampin Up Inks in Island Indigo, Going Gray and Basic Grey. I was inspired by the colours in the photo. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up ‘A cut above’ stamp set.
Lastly is a card for:
I used a Simon Says Stamp ‘Thankful Flowers’ and coloured the single flower with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blends. When I was colouring, I noticed that the inks were bleeding, but once it was finished, I quite liked the halo effect that resulted. CAS seems to be my natural style, I really like the quiet white space for your eyes to rest.
Well, that’s it for today. I think I need to go have a lie down now. Thanks for stopping by for a look.
