So I was playing at the craft desk last night, and ... well, I keep a pile of "meh" and "pffth" at the top of my grid paper pad, and every once in a while it speaks to me; sometimes I listen.
I saw a piece of yellow ribbon next to a few pieces of nicely trimmed black card stock, and I thought: yellow + black + white. Do it. And I did. This is what came out:
heh heh I had put a dollop of Peacock Liquid Pearls near the edge of my grid paper for another play project that is now just so much trash, and I'd forgotten it was there, so yeah, it got onto my fingers and schmeared onto the black washi tape as I tied the bow. Ya know what? I decided I liked it! I even squirted out a bit more to even out the schmears and make it look like I meant to do that! :D
Once I got past that debacle, the most difficult part of this card was the sentiment. I went with the XOXO from the HA Year Round Sentiments set, but I really, really, REALLY wanted to attach it with a button ... it wasn't going to happen - the balance wasn't right. I ended up with that not-banner you see up there.
So yeah, this card was one big happy accident, and I've used a piece of ribbon from the "meh" pile and also a few more inches of washi tape. Go, me.
In other news, Bobra is a little rascal. I need to figure out how to alter his internal clock so he plays all day instead of starting at 11 pm at night by burrowing under the covers and attacking me. For an hour. I am so. tired. I've also swapped out the nice quilt for one I care about less, so the play time won't shred the good stuff. Kids: what are ya gonna do?
Thanks for stopping by!
