and then...my card sort of morphed away from the sketch...you know, the way my cards tend to do...and then it morphed back a bit. (like many of my midweek creations, the process stretched over a couple of nights; often it's 8pm before i even get to sit down...but i like to do a little *something* at least) eventually, i settled on this. i used a transparency, some rubs, a ghost heart and a bunch of embellies, so it's fairly flat, while still having LOTS of layers. i'm kinda proud of that, actually.
oof, at some point i should probably SHOW the card, right?! sorry. here ya go:
unusually for me, i even got a bit fancy INSIDE the card: i stamped, i inked, i colored...heck, i ever tried *shading*!!! i was inspired by miss kristie, amongst others, whose sterling work recently reminded me HOW COOL a decorated inside-of-the-card is!
(journaling spot & happy stamp: heidi swapp; clear sticker: CK; winged heart stamp: pink paislee; other: colorbox & ranger inks; tombow markers, prismacolor pencils)
i *might* even stamp a bit on the envelope, as well, but we will see how long my ambition lasts!
*if you happen to have seen my favorite doctor who episode, "blink" you might realize that i have stolen a line from that...adapted it to papercrafting...and made it even sillier than it already was. (which is saying something!) yes indeedy, it's an achievement i shall cherish for many years to come! :)
