I have to admit, I have been in a little bit of a funk this week! No energy or desire to create. I would walk into my room and just sit there. I have so many creative idea's floating around from convention, that I just didn't know where to begin!! I would start a project and stop mid way thru and move to something else. The problem was I wasn't getting anything accomplished!! So I decided this morning that I just need to play with my ink, stamps and paper for fun!! No creating for classes just creating for fun!!
Plus what is a better way to get the creative juices flowing is with a sketch online and new product! Yes, I was able to order a selection of new product while at Convention and this yummy box of goodies arrived last night. So I picked out a stamp set and found a sketch over at Mojo Monday and went to town create this gorgeous card!!
This week's sketch was created by Julee and she created a tall and skinny card. I decided to go with the 5.5 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5" for my base.
I used the new gorgeous stamp set called "Wonderland" and the stunning new Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper. This new paper is double-sided designs printed with metallic ink on one side! The coordinating colours are Basic Black, Gold and Whisper White.
I decided to stay with these colours for my card. I love being introduced to old techniques that you forget about so I thought it would be fun to emboss my tree's in gold embossing powder. Did you know that embossing and watercolouring are very trendy right now!! I know that I don't use my embossing powders or heat gun enough, but I love the effect that it gives...so watch for my fun embossing projects in the future!!
Did you notice the snowing falling in the background behind the tree's? That is a new impression folder called Softly Falling!! It's a must in your collection!!
