I’ve been paying for this WordPress subscription since I began (maybe 1.5 years ago?), and I have 3 posts. <Shame!> I thought about it and realized why it’s been hard for me to get back into posting.
- Because I’m in the software field and I’m on my computer all day. Getting back on to do yet another activity on my laptop fills me with dread sometimes, and other times, I’m just lazy.
- Because I have the perfectionist + procrastination condition that makes me want things to be perfect, and I push it to a later date so that I can post it when perfect. Haha!
- Because my boyfriend’s sweet kitty sits / curls up on me for hours and I experience feline paralysis (can’t move until she’s done with her nap). LOL!
I know, these seem like excuses, but I swear, it’s true!!!
Anyway, moving on to the actual post… I made a card for a colleague for her b’day. I really feel like something’s missing in this card. I can’t figure out what it is. I took a while and couldn’t come up with anything so off it went. Please let me know your thoughts on how I could have made this better. I’d love to hear your suggestions!
So, I used the Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Violet Brocade and colored the balloons on some Koh-i-noor watercolor paper, and then did the inlay technique to put in the balloon parts onto the card base (made of Neenah / Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock). I covered the balloons with some glossy accents. I used Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and one of the lavender colors which I can’t remember right now. (Sorry!) and coated the sentiment (from MFT Stamps) with some Wink of Stella. Then, I scattered some Studio Katia clear rhinestones around the balloons.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post! 🙂 I’ll try to keep this going. 🙂
