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. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, it’s super shimmery IRL!

And I do like the texture, it almost looks and feels like velvet… sweet!
