SO not keeping up with posts and challenges lately - seems Pezzy just can't resist the gorgeous spring weather and the new sand & water table we got! i did manage to get a card done for MJ's Technostamper sketch. have i mentioned how much i am IN LOVE with the stamps over at pink cat studios????? i want them ALL!! here is MJ's
and my card:
The vase stamp is from pink cat studios and the background is ranger dimensional pearls and i just love how it turned out. i colored the stamp with markers, stamped it and then colored it in with my aquapainter and adirondack ink pads. i am JUST starting to use these and really like them so far. for the background i squirted a piece of paper randomly with dimensional pearls, laid another piece on top, smoothed and smooshed it with my brayer and then grabbed the corners and peeled apart diagonally. will be doing more of this one!! the dimensional pearls are now available on my website! here is a close up:
and now some pics to show you why i have been MIA. First is Pezzy getting into my inventory which was stored in boxes under my table. yes those are the pens i send out to everyone. so this started a big re-organization project and a trip to home depot. now everything is put away on shelves in the storage room.
next is the planting i have been working on around the deck. the worst part is digging up the grass - UGH!!! the planting i love! my goal is to have all of the grass gone under the deck and stairs :)
