An Honest to Goodness Award

I’ve been given this “honest scrap” award from Alina.   According to the rules of  receiving this award, I am to tell you  10 things about myself, and pass it on. These are a few things you may not have known about me… My family always comes first. I fell in love with my husband 17 years ago, and we’ve been married for 12 yrs. I love him more today. I like to stay up very late, and sleep in very late! I need my coffee. I get emotional when I see a beautiful dance or art performance. I am too serious by times,  and my boys remind me to lighten up! I hate it when people make and look for trouble where there is none. I like to keep things simple, and honest. I enjoy quiet moments and I need some time alone every day. …and now I would like to pass this award on to Ali Ann V. Claire (Hope Jacare) Jaime Jennifer Mandy Peata Saskia Shelly Stacy Thank you Alina, for this award!! …

Charmed I’m Sure!

Our second SBS18 ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap was the theme “Charmed I’m Sure”.  We were to use at least two charms on our ATCs. I used these two little pewter charms as accents against a silhouette stamped background. I started with a lilac coloured textured cardstock and to get those random lines across it, I smooshed my ink pad on a piece of acetate, then swiped the cardstock over it.  The raised textured parts picked up the ink and gave it this streaked grid background.  I then stamped my Pocket Silhuettes stamp  twice before reinking it to get the “ghost” silhouettes and the darker silhouettes.  This was then mounted on a green Asian print background.  I really like the soft colours and how the bg turned out.  I might have to experiment with this background technique, with different cardstock textures, to see how they pick up the ink.  Maybe different ink surfaces too… hmmm.   Let me know what you think! 🙂 I wanted to thank Els, and Steph for this amazing blog award too! …
