Wow - a card!
I spent my evening doing something I haven't done in a long time - blog surfing. I saw so many amazing, amazing cards that it actually inspired me to do something I haven't felt like doing in awhile. I made a card! This is made with one of The Angel Company's new sets for spring/summer '08, called Enchanted Florals (I'm a hobby angel, and there are tons of new sets I just love this time). I think the flowers in this set are so neat. Very flowing, very fluid. Whimsical, almost. I stamped with Blue Midnight Stazon, painted with Twinkling H20s, and inked around the edges with my favorite distress ink color, Weathered Wood. I stamped another of the images from the same set below the bling and traced over it with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I used Brocade Blue and Cool Caribbean cardstock from SU!, and one of the Stardream Metallics papers in Sapphire. The sentiment says "Uplift", and is part of a pack of chipboard sentiments I got at Michaels a long time ago. I'm so glad I got the change to surf blogs tonight. I have been wanting to stamp for a long time, but I tried and tried, and nothing came. I threw away tons of false starts. My mind kept wandering back to my altered stuff. So thanks to everyone who gave me some motivation!!
