Two More Challenges
Hi all. I hope you are having a nice weekend. I’m still housebound with this bad cough. I’m definitely feeling much better but hubby is being overprotective and I’ve only been out of the house once in two weeks and am going a little stir crazy. Tomorrow I’m heading into hospital for another round of chemo and I’m actually looking forward to it just so I can get out of here!! That’s a worry isn’t it? Oh well, I’m going to visit the oncologist first and hopefully she’ll have more promising news that we are on the right track and my big sis Jule is coming with me as my buddy so that’ll be nice. Oooh did I tell you that she shaved her head to raise money for Breast Cancer and has so far raised $2,000! I think she’s very brave and inspiring and many people talk the talk, but she is walking the walk for cancer research! x
and here is my card.
Stamps: Medallion, Occasional Greetings
Inks: Soft Suede, Black Stazon
Cardstock: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Big Shot Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Champagne Mist shimmer paint, Stampa-ma-jig, Build-a-brad, black satin ribbon
I’m really happy with how this card turned out although it is so far removed from the original idea I had when I sat down at my desk! I tried a new technique using the Shimmer Paint. I stamped the Medallion in Soft Suede and then daubered the shimmer paint directly onto the rubber stamp and realigned my image with the Stampa-ma-jig to give it a slight shadow effect. In real life it’s very shimmery and quite stunning (if I do say so myself) but my photo doesn’t really do it justice .
Thanks for popping in. Have a great week!
