Hi there and happy Tuesday!!
I think we’ve all had our struggles feeling happy and cheerful through all the virus stuff, but all the more reason to not waste time, when we can help it, feeling helpless and nervous. We really can choose joy in the midst of any circumstance if we stop to think of all we have instead of what we lack.
Here is what I made for our Tuesday Morning Sketches #551. It’s a really fun sketch and a great one for using scraps. I spent way tooooo long on this first card. But I guess it’s ok because it was a learning experience and it was fulfilling to attempt to put an idea, that I had the very first time I laid my eyes on this stamp set, into action. I say attempt because I didn’t really pull it off as nicely as I had hoped.
I thought it would be cool to turn the bottle into a shaker card with these little glass beads that look like sand to me. Creating a true shaker was daunting right off the bat when I cut that little square out and wanted to have space for the message inside to show through - I thought right away - NOT happening. My Fuse popped in my mind, I bought it 4 or so years ago and finally for this card I broke it out of the packaging!! I really like it so I hope to get more use of it in the near future.
Have a look below for pics of the Fuse piece and have fun this week, don’t watch the news more than you craft!! I’m very much looking forward to seeing what you create! Of course as always feel free to ask questions :) almost all the supplies are from the new CTMH catalog.
I almost forgot I had made these also!
