This post is perfect for me today!!
I am so inspired it is CRAZY.
Ang and Whitney’s [I miss Jolande] FaceBook videos inspire me SO MUCH!
They whip things out so fast and like it is nothing!
So I decided I will too!
I just layer and layer and layer LOL
I texted Andrea the entire time I made these and the goal was to keep piling on layers until it looked like I knew what I was doing!!
I found this beauty on Pinterest. You can find it HERE
The problem is my coloring skills are similar to a toddler using those giant crayons. I put the dictionary paper on with some Modge Podge. Then I decided to grab some very old and nearly dried up Tim Holtz crackle paint in picket fence. Then I used his bricked stencil and inked over that.
Then I embossed the light bulb on using Shine, Shine, Shine. I put some Glossy Accents on that. Then I embossed the girl from Spread Your Wings KOTM 5/15
Then I used a water brush and my Tim Holtz distressed inks smashed on an acrylic block.
See that giant red dictionary? $0.99 at the Goodwill WHOOP WHOOP!! This is all it took to make the card.
I was having so much fun I went for round two!
I also really LOVE this one! Again, from Pinterest. That place is loaded with so many talented people it blows my mind!! You can see it HERE.
This one I did pretty much the exact same way. Except I cut out the flowers. I don’t know why I made a brown flower. I can’t be good at everything and I guess colors is not my thing? LOL It was not a problem for me until just now but I am not fixing it! LOL
The flowers are from Flowers + Friends = Priceless and the jar, i just embossed one of them it is from Jars of Love x 3 I also filled it in with Glossy Accents.
Here is what I used on my tag. I use a removable glue dot to hold my blending pads on the bottom of the ink. They will fall off but I want to stick with the same color on each one so I just try to be careful
I hope this inspires you to go get inked up! It is so much fun!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
