FWF 9/26/2014

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog!  I always appreciate the lovely comments.  Without further ado, here's my FWF for the week!

I got the gelato bug from all the Faber Castell love from last week!  I had to immediately go out and buy some! The sentiment is from May Hope Sustain You (Sentiment kit from March 2014).

I originally hated the way I had done the background.  It seemed too "straight".  Not enough flow.  I kept playing with it and playing with it.  The watercolor paper started to pill I had played too much!  So, I had to get a little creative when it came to how to fix it.  I might still add an embellishment or two, but I'm much happier with how this card shaped up.

Thanks for stopping by!

FWF 9/19/2014

It's been FAR FAR FAR too long since I've participated...  I am ashamed at how long it's been.  Since I had a little extra time this evening, I thought I would share a card that I recently made!

The feather stamp came from the July KOM.  I'm pretty sure the "just for you" stamp is also a Unity KOM, but heaven's knows which one!  I tried looking for it, to no avail. EDIT: "just for you" comes from the April 2014 KOM.

Anyway, I created this card by spraying some inks onto a flexible cutting mat (bought at Ikea, love using these for my inks!).  I then inked up my stamp and applied it to the cardstock.  I was going to try to create a background with the "leftover" ink, but by the time I inked my stamp 3 times, the leftover was all brown and no longer pretty.

Thanks for stopping by!
