Out of the Comfort Zone

March has had be a bit pressed for time. Birthday, crazy over time, brother coming home, busted work chair, messy dripping pantry (thank you exploded soda can! There’s a reason I don’t normally have this stuff in the house haha!) and a new role at my full-time job. Tomorrow brings a busy day of cleaning, moving things around, shopping, and TAXES.

Sticking to my commitment, I've made a simple card but it’s out of my comfort zone. White on white with a pop of water colour in Santa. Using a Sizzix Embossing Folder (Christmas Words, which I think is now retired?) and a water coloured Santa2Stamp from Stamps of Life this card turned out better than I though!  I added some Black Tsukineko Irresistibles on the eyes to make them pop.

I have another project I’ve started and will hopefully have that posted soon, stay tuned!

Prisma Practice

This month I kept things very simple and easy. I’ve been focusing on my Prisma colouring, experimenting with different papers trying to find what I prefer. This card was stamped with the Misti, using SSS blank ink. The stamp is one I showed before from Stampendous.  

I see all these beautiful pencil colouring and wondering why I can’t achieve the same affect. Layering. The answer is layering. I’ve been watching videos and that’s what I’m missing. So this time I have practiced my layers, taking my time and got some of the best results I’ve had. I’m keeping it simple with a ginger cat as inspiration.

Here’s my finished product.  Simple patterned paper red frame, cut with SSS stitched rectangles and glued to a top folding note card.
