My crafting mojo has been missing for days now. Of course that always seems to be the case when I have deadlines looming in my personal life. With a list of things to do as long as my arm, I'm staring vacantly into space hoping the craft fairy will come clean up my area and leave me a pile of finished projects.
One of the things on my to do list is to finish making Christmas cards. I used inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches and Muse to bring you this:
Taking a cue from the design team over at Freshly Made Sketches, I was very loose with my interpretation. I spritzed pearlized Smokey Plum onto the purple background to follow the sketch. Then I used my finger to smear silver pigment ink over top. That left me with too much silver and not enough purple, so I smeared Smokey Plum and Gypsy pigment ink.
The snowflake followed the same basic inking. First it was spritzed, patted with Smokey Plum pigment ink, patted with silver pigment, and then toped with some heavier pats with Gypsy pigment. I have a little silver on my Gypsy ink pad now, but it's not horrible.
The snowflake was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
All supplies listed with italics are CTMH.
Well, off to make dinner. Maybe the kitchen fairy cleaned and left me a delicious, nutritious meal. Here's to wishful thinking!
Until next time,
