I know. I said I was going to take a little break from crafting. On July 1st I took a walk with my sister in the morning. Rem and I went out to Pt. Bonita Lighthouse in the afternoon. In the evening…I made a batch of cards. It was really nice just digging into my card supplies and creating without stopping to take pictures of the process and without writing a post about it.
I did a few using the Double Sponged & Embossed Technique I first tried on Day 4 of 30DoC.
This bird was embossed on a page torn from an old Math textbook.
I did a butterfly stamped over a cracked texture background and I embellished it with some postage stamps from Poland.
I tried the technique on another old page – I love the stamp (Floral Vine from Paper Source) I used but it didn’t quite work. So I stamped it again on plain white paper and layered the two images.
My favorite was the dragonfly card on a little patchwork background (up at the top of the post). It didn’t use the Double Sponged technique, in fact, I wasn’t sure where I was going with the card. I punched out squares of different papers and arranged them in rows. But I wasn’t happy with just that, so I took a scrap left from another card, layered on a bit more ink, stamped the dragonfly in brown and splattered some silver ink over it. I finished the card off with some Diva Dots as embellishment and went to bed very satisfied with crafting and relieved to be finished with the thirty days of creativity.
Thanks for the visit.
