Back home

I'm back from vacation with a quick card post. Yes, first night back and instead of unpacking, I've decided to do some creating :)

I follow a lot of craft blogs and it seems plaid is popping up everywhere from the Runway Inspired Challenge. I decided to join in for the fun. :) I'm also participating in CAS-ual Fridays (text) and Moxie Fab World (thank you card). While I've been following and reading these blogs, this is my first time joining in for the challenges at all three of these blogs.




I recently bought a Hero Arts plaid stamp (what a coincidence) but instead of using it, I decided to stamp with my flip flops lol...(maybe I should return the plaid stamp after all). I really like the effect it created and I think I'm going to keep making more of them for future patterned paper :) I used acrylic ink for the stamping and I really like the versatility of this ink because I also plan on using it for painting in the near future (I hope). To go with the more artsy look, I decided to hand-write the text. The card can be seen as a kind of thank you for keeping myself/heart together.


That's all for tonight :)
