I am slowly getting back to more crafting even though I’m currently sleeping around 10-11 hours per day. 8 at night and a nap – which sounds excessive but it’s necessary at the moment because I’ve started back to work part time. This of course means that my crafting is even more critical for fun and stress release! I’ll try to share more of what I’m doing with you all. First up is the Beautiful Day set in the new Occasions catalog (page 26 – if you need one mailed, let me know) and the brusho crystal colour. These are watercolor ink crystals which have really intense colors. The brushos are on the same page which is why a lot of people have been playing with the Beautiful Day set and brushos together.
I first stamped the butterfly and left it to dry for quite a while. Seeing as I was making 21 swap cards they had time! Next I wet the watercolor paper inside the butterfly image and then held the little pot upside down and tapped on the bottom. Since there are only 2 holes made with a paper piercer the powder comes up sparingly. I used the red, gamboge and yellow crystals and then spritzed water over the card too. Then I put them aside to dry. As you can see, they all come out quite differently.
The YOU comes from Amazing You and that gorgeous die cut amazing comes from the matching dies, Celebrate You. My sister cranked out 21 of them after first putting the multipurpose adhesive sheets on the back. It’s so nice to have a visiting crafter! The great thing about these dies is that you can get them for free with a $100 purchase because they are in the Sale-a-bration brochure. And even better is that they will be in the next annual catalog. Personally I prefer to get them for free!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
