Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Round And Round She Goes...Where She Stops, Nobody Knows!
This card was definitely created in stages! I almost abandoned it numerous times, but I decided to keep going - to allow the process to unfold - all the while hoping that where I would end up would be a place I could smile about :) And so it is :) Sometimes you just have to go round and round with it and see where you stop!
I'm not sure I can even recount all of the steps I took to get to this card...it went something like this...stamped A to Z on Very Vanilla card stock; stamped bird image in Versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Took multiple sponges and colors and went wild sponging over everything! Then I stamped the greeting in black on the background. Then came the flowers stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then the butterfly image - more Versamark and white embossing powder...and then a bit more sponging. Then the greeting stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and cut into bite-size pieces and adhered to the card. The 2-Step Bird Punch was next - sponged with Rich Razzleberry, of course :) And then some distressing of the edges before putting the entire card together. Phew! Quite the journey :) I hope you enjoyed the trip! :) Speaking of trips, I will likely not be posting tomorrow (Thursday), but my hope is to be back in time for Four Ways Friday...see you then!
