Today has been a good day. It hasn't been super productive, but it has been a good day. The weather is wonderful. I got to see my husband receive an award this morning at an Army breakfast. The kids are using today's school day as a 'make up' day. Plus, I got to play a bit in my 'craft cave'. It is a good day :)
I like to stretch my creative limbs a bit and try new things. Today over at Splitcoaststampers they have a new Mix-ability challenge, and today's challenge is called Mr. Squiggle. You have to use two different kinds of medium. . .mine are inks and chalks, and the challenge is to doodle. I didn't use a single stamp on my card. It surprised me too!
I've been enjoying mixing up my backgrounds using various inks and water. After I made the background, I wrote out my sentiment and drew my stars. They were then colored with some chalks, and I love how those yellow stars just stand out.
