Oh I had such an awesome time with my people! My sister is my best friend, so spending time with her is the bee's knees! We shopped and shopped and shopped and also laid in the sun. Being from Washington state she is pretty darn tired of cold and rain. Being in 70+ with sun is her idea of heaven! The disadvantage of people is you really can't stamp! So, today I dropped her off at the airport I will spend the rest of my day catching up on past and future designing I need to do.
Polished Stone technique. Even though I didn't have any metallic re-inker, I was very happy with this result also! I did take my gold stamp pad and run it over the top. It gave off a nice,subtle shimmer. Here is a close up of that and of my hand stitching. (so fun!)
This catch up is for the color challenge over at STV. Gina messed up (oh it is so nice to know everyone messes up sometimes :)) and had 2 different choices of colors - I went with Turquoise Sea, Fresh Asparagus and Sweet Corn. In stead of using the newly released GKD stamps, I went back in my file and pulled out the fun stamps from Quite the Catch (lobster guy) and Gifts from the Sea (sentiment). I also used my Nestabilities Seashell die cut. Just a little card, but fun!
Thanks for stopping in. I am so excited to be creating again! :)
