Ok, this project was something that I have been wanting to do for a while. I have been wanting a Rolodex to keep my Internet addresses and names in. Well a few weeks back I found this blank to alter. I just love it! I used some of my favorite Basic Grey Blush paper, purchased pink blank cards. And of course added my Chic Tilda to make me smile. Now if you could only see my fingers... I inked the all the edges and the post. With DARK Brown Colorbox Catseye, well the pad fell off the base, I used a napkin for a while. I was a mess! I have scrubbed till my hands hurt, and I still have ink... But it was so worth it! The letters were some old Nostalgia stickers, that I think worked really well with the paper. Tilda is colored with Copics, the double matted to make her strong. I used a chipboard flourish that I think is Fancy Pants, and a flower from Petaloo. The button is out of my Grandma's old buttons. I LOVE IT! Now to get all my addresses and info into it, then it will sit on the corner of my desk.
I did get one card made last night, it is for the Saturday Workout Challenge Blog, this week they asked for something embossed. Well I pulled out my new Crock stamp by High Hopes Stamps, and colored him with Copics and highlighted with Ranger White Gel Pen. I placed him ontop of a piece of sage green Bazzil Cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug with this cute reptile looking pattern on it. My base is a dark green Bazzil card stock, for some fun I added a scrap piece of Basic Grey Lilly Kate paper, and matted everything on some scrap light blue card stock. I doodled with Sakura Glaze Pens, and added some ribbon. The Crock just looked flat - so I carefully put some Diamond Glaze on him to give him a shiny wet look. I laughed out loud the first time I saw the sentiment "You Crock Me Up!". What do you think?
Well lots to do today... and I am so hoping that my email will be up and running later today! Might get outside to do a few things this afternoon the weather is beautiful here! Hope you all have a Great Monday!
