welcome back, hoppers!!!
hope you're having as much fun as we are!
just when i thought *nothing* could surpass my love of black magic cardstock, core'dinations came out with something new: the whitewash collection! it's a pale toned-downed version of a color on the top, with a darker shade inside. soft, yet dramatic; perfect for the shabby chic vibe...or...a funky grunge look. it's definitely a fun product to play around with...whilst wearing sawdust-proof clothing, obviously! ;)
one of the first things i thought of when i saw the pale blue whitewashed shade was fluffy little clouds. i sketched cloud shapes lightly in pencil; then dampened, crumpled, dried out & sanded them, before tearing around the shapes and finally outlining them. here's the anniversary card i made for my sister and her husband which features my clouds and a few other cardstock bits and bobs:
(cardstock: core'dinations, from the new whitewash collection and 6x6 roy g biv super assorment; glossy white cardstock: ranger; embroidery floss: dmc; inks: colorbox; pens: american crafts, zig & copic; other: dymo labeller & manual typewriter; the hearts say "john" and "amie" respectively)
and now i'll send the BLOG HOPPERS on their way with a reminder of the order:
