It took 3 cards before I was satisfied with OWH's Sketch #129:
The last one is my favorite. And here's the sketch:
I really like this sketch because it uses up scraps and I'm really building up tons of scraps!
As if my weekend wasn't busy enough, I decided to organize my Cricut cartridges - for the third time! I was storing them in the Artbin containers, but was frustrated because they took up a lot of room. So, I cut out little boxes for them (using a cut file from Dtsart) and stored them in a shoe box from the Container Store:
I also made boxes that hold the cartridge booklet and overlay and stored them in memory boxes:
I'm going to use the empty Artbin containers to store paper kits in (I removed the inserts). I think this will work better for me. As I was organizing them, I realized that there are cartridges that I've never used. Awful! I need to pull those out and cut out some images!
Finally, I managed to make a card using an example from Kristina in day 6 of the Stretch your stamps class. Kristina made a rainbow background using markers, however, I wanted to try a technique called Rainbow Distress Inking by Shari Carroll in her video here: Rainbow Distress Inking. I rubbed the inks on my craft sheet and then pushed my floral stamp into them, then onto the watercolor paper. I couldn't leave all that ink on the mat, so I squirted water on the ink and pulled another white card through the ink.
Then I cut out the butterflies from the second paper, embossed the image on top and used one of the sentiments to add to the card. It really came out great and I absolutely love the dies:
Whew! This was a busy weekend and I need to go back to work tomorrow to recover! Ha ha! I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was so much cooler here in South Carolina, but not enough to spend any time outside!
Thanks for looking and reading this long post!
