Soar

Find Your Style_2_Jan 2011

Here is my take on FTL 122 as currently featured on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. The butterfly was stamped on Colonial White cardstock that had been misted first using Close To My Heart’s new spray pen, which holds a mixture of water, ink (from a reinker), and shimmery Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint. I am glad I was wise enough to grab a shallow box for the spraying technique. While the spray pen is small, its range of mist is wide, and without the box, I fear I would have added a shimmery Vineyard Berry mist to more that was desired. LOL.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Vineyard Berry cardstock; Wings Level 2 paper packet; Black and Vineyard Berry ink pads; Find Your Style January SOTM set; Licorice Opaques Adhesive Gems; Fiskars Apron Lace border punch; Spray Pen; Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint; Vineyard Berry reinker; Sponge dauber.

A Slice of Life: Yesterday was a fun, full day at my sister’s house. Today, Bjorn and Mathias are going to pay us a little visit, and later, Mom and I are going out to get some groceries. Instead of thinking about going to work tomorrow, I am thinking about the fact that I don’t have to go to work tomorrow. Ahh…  LOL.

I hope you are having a great weekend. Hugs to you!
