ICAD, ICAD2, Index card, Kiddies, Perfect Pearls Mist, Ranger, Studio Calico
I’m going to show you M’s index card first today. It’s beautiful, colourful striped lines, so pretty.
Then she broke out the scissors:
“Why did you cut it apart?” I asked.
“Because I wanted to.”
To which I replied, “But for me to take a picture and post it, you need a full card.”
“Why?” says she, “It’s my card, I can do what I want.”
Oh, so true! So that was her card for June 8. I kept all the pieces and put them in our little box where we stash our cards.
Then, my friend Lori stopped by with some new Studio Calico masks – you know I had to try them out!
I mixed some Chipped Sapphire Distress Stain with Light Modeling Paste and smeared it over one of the masks. While it was drying I painted the word Friday, left over from some class prep.
I wanted a little more colour so I painted around some of the circles of modeling paste. Blerg.
Sprayed it a lot to dilute the orange circles, then I heavily sprayed the whole thing with Mandarin Perfect Pearls Mist. Better. But it still needed something….
M’s strips! I layered one under the word and called it done!
Not my most exciting card ever, but it’s a day done and it’s got pieces of me and M. 🙂 Plus, it’s super shimmery IRL!
And I do like the texture, it almost looks and feels like velvet… sweet!
What a great technique! Loving the conversations you’re having with your daughter. She’s darling!!!
She is….some days! 🙂 But yes, our conversations are pretty funny!
