Sorry I've been gone so long. I did go through a brief no-mojo phase but I have created quite a few cards lately. Yes, I have been extremely busy at work and I am still working overtime quite frequently but the fact is... I just didn't feel like blogging anything. I guess you could say I lost my blog mojo.
I made a card I just had to post. With not a button in sight it would be extremely easy to put through the mail and I played with some easy techniques that prove a little can go a long way. I even fixed a smudge! Originally, the sun was a single layer raised on pop dots. Then I had to go and stick my inky dirty finger right in the middle of it. I tried adding more ink but since the smudge was almost black, it didn't hide a thing. I decided to make a double sun instead to cover it up. See how creative we can be when we don't want to ditch a great card and are too lazy to remake the thing!
I embossed the clouds and the balloons with white EP. I colored with Copics on the balloons. I wasn't sure how the colors would perform since I stamped them on Orange Zest... I love how they came out. I tied a sweet tiny bow on the largest balloon with PTI silk ribbon... I just love that stuff and need to order more. The entire card is PTI except for the Copics and the Spellbinders dies for the sun. I even threw in a little Dottie Biscotti strip at the bottom. Sweeeeeet! Hope you enjoy this card. I am quite pleased with myself today.
Good night for now. I may blog again tomorrow, I may disappear for another couple of months. I don't plan on it but it may happen!
