Love Song Tweeters

Hubby came home today sick-I kinda knew it would happen. He was sick last night and insisted on going to work and infecting everyone there. Why are guys like this anyways? Big babies!! Now he is gonna infect me too-as I always get everything on the rebound.


So there won't be any love songs for me for a while if ever. But I really like this card (it's a square one, my bane, but it works). It was hard to photograph to catch the stamped image on the black, so I hope you get the idea. I stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with a darker burgundy powder. Using those scissors I hardly ever use anymore, I did the sides only. I found a medium textured scrap and cut it to show only on the top and bottom behind the black stamped piece.

Using a vanilla card, I sponge stippled the front and after punching two corners of a textured piece, layered it on top of the card. A smaller piece of patterned card was edged in purple ink and inserted into the corner slots. Since this was two sided patterned paper, I took a small length of the reverse side, inked the edges and then laid it across the front. The stamped and layered piece I made before is now pop dotted in the middle.

The lighting is bad on this as I had to turn it just so to catch the embossing and because of that, it kinda washed out the front. I will be so glad when I can do this outside in the sunshine instead of by kitchen stove light. Now I need to find a bucket for hubby-just in case. It should be a fun night. At least he called into work, and told them he was sick. But I bet they are calling at 6 AM anyways.
