This started it's little journey to become art as it was used to accept extra gesso two days ago...
Next, it was used again, this time as a mat to catch excess alcohol ink.
But then things turned around for this little card.
Supplies and notes:
- Library due-date card base, last stamped in 1994, coated with gesso
- Alcohol ink was all inadvertantly added to make the background: Butterscotch and Oregano
- The leaves are extra "seaweed" from THIS PROJECT, though I added a little Oregano alcohol ink to "green" it back up
- The flowers were made from my MIL's ancient encyclopedia, first inked with DI in Scattered Straw then punched with a Fiskars punch. Each flower is made of three punched flowers, glued together with Glossy Accents and topped off with Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite
- The sentiment was in my stash, already edged with an olive ink.
- I added some of my fave olive + metallic yarn, and for the finishing touch, I added golden fine Stickles to the edge.
So... so... so my great aunt Roxie. Roxella. Hella.
I'll share this for my fourth entry into a Simon Says Anything Goes on Wednesday... sorry, really want some fun-money! (Hey, for the record, I work for a school district, and my income is my fun-money... so during summer, my fun-money [i.e. craft supply money] gets pretty skinny...) Would love some Simon Says dough!$$$ And of course I love to share when I can.
