This card here took a little bit of thinking on my part. I started yesterday thinking about what I like about myself. I didn't really want to make a list and I decided this afternoon to go with one thing. One thing I like about myself is that I have the ability to have fun no matter what is happening in my life.
I don't have much in the way of pattern paper. However, a few years back I was able to find some pattern paper of Monet's waterlilies. I always loved that painting. I had a scrap and decided to use it on this card. I took a gold Sharpie and drew my border. I decided to print and cut out Peter Pan and Wendy from a image. I have a stamp with have fun as part of the sentiment. I decided to mask and just use the have fun part. I stamped it on a scrap of plastic from a page protector. Then after using a drop of glue on the corners to adhere it I placed gems at the corners. The gems reminded me of water drops.
As I said I don't have a lot of pattern paper. However, while I was prepping my cards I was also playing. I had inked a stamp and stamped into the wet gesso. I thought it would be perfect for this card. I was playing with my eBrush and metallic Sharpies. I discovered that if I held the eBrush up high that I got nice metallic speckles. The I am thankful for is from a journal tag which did not cut right. I cut it from the top. I printed the this momeent moments to come with a Brother's label maker. For the leaf which was print and cut I painted gold paint on it and then
used a wrinkled plastic bag on it.
Next week there will not be a challenge but do come back the following week to see what week 13 is. Also come back soon to check to see what my next project is. I'll give you a hint it is another Christmas card but this one for children or for those who are children at heart.
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
