Busy Project



Sorry for not posting in awhile but I am rather on the busy card-making side. For the next few months, I will be working on a project for an upcoming October wedding. The bride asked if I had time to create 150 thank you note cards. I really felt honored and hope I can fulfill her request. The picture above is my first weeks progress plus 3 more which did not make the picture.  

For the last six months, I have had a "wire-loop recorder" just under the skin of my left breast. It is an internal heart monitor. This Thursday it will be removed, or at least hope it will. Monday I started with a sore throat which has developed into laryngitis. I sound like a "sick bullfrog."

Anyway, for this project, I have been selecting open stamp designs, stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black, and embossing with either a clear or black embossing powder. Then I used the Chameleon Pens to add the coloration. I really love to do layering and try to match the layers with the design colors.

My husband has been in the furniture creating mood and I have a unique new art desk. Behind the two doors, he designed space for various sized canvases.  Thought I would share his "master" piece with you.



Well, I need to get back to the cards. I do hope you have a fantastic week and have time to create your own artwork.

God Bless ...
