So, I got my stamp...brought out the dreaded Copics (which I still have such trouble with) and did my best. I found glorious pink glitter paper to match the blue, brought out a Martha Stewart Edge punch (finally broke into my hoarded stash), added a computer generated sentiment, mounted it on a Spellbinder's tag, a matching bow and a jewel.
Sitting there last night watching the Olympics I thought ...okay, Owl...you are sick...you need bloodshot eyes. Then today I added Glossy Accents to the eyes. I think it looks pretty good myself! The inside is just a note telling her that good wishes are winging her way from this corner of the world.
Right after work I headed to Michael's to grab a note pad and I spotted this 5x7 hot pink journal. I couldn't wait to finish supper and out came my Big Shot, Nestabilities, paper, Distress Ink and stuff. As I did not have the Stamping Up punch for the head I had to "Google" an image of the die cut> print it out on my computer> cut the cardstock> trace it onto my paper and cut it out. Then I die-cut the other required pieces, did my very first distress-look, glued everything together and finished with adding googly eyes.
I really hope she likes it. Now, I just have to package it all up and stick it in the mail. I heard they released her from the hospital and she is resting at home now.
I have been so busy working that I really have not had time to think and I still have the wedding invitations to make by the end of the month. Then....I plan on digging out my Marianne Walker manual and figure out how to use these dreaded Copics without bleeding everywhere. I know it is me because I am using Prism paper and I am using Neenah Classic Crest paper everyone raves about and I still bleed.
Oh well...six medals...Go Canada Go!!!
