Hey guys! I have to apologize, I don’t have as many post to share this week as I normally would. I spent all day Saturday doing home improvement projects and didn’t have a lot of time for crafting. Then I spent Sunday evening, when I do a lot of my writing, passed out in bed trying to recover.😂 But, did get to make a quick card for the MFT Sketch challenge!
Here is the sketch for this week:
And….here is my card!
It’s a pretty simple sketch, so I thought I would keep it simple. My original plan was to use an alcohol ink background but I somehow got distracted. Instead, I used an alcohol ink and Glossy cardstock panel to die cut MFT’s Hooray. The panel had Coral and Turquoise dots on it, with some silver mixative over it all.
I also die cut the Hooray three times from white cardstock and layered them all together. I took a scrap strip of MFT’s Silver Sparkle cardstock and adhered it under the sentiment, and also sprinkled some Studio Katia’s Platinum gems on the front.
I added a sentiment from MFT’s Anything But Basic Birthday set inside, in a coral ink. The card base is MFT’s Coral Crush. This color is new to me an it’s gorgeous!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m going to try to put together another post for you on Thursday, if I’m not still dragging.
Oh, I meant to tell you what I did on Saturday! I painted the trim in my craft room, using a silver shimmer paint additive! No simple white paint for me lol! I do have a picture, but like all shimmer products, it doesn’t photograph well.
It doesn’t look this grainy in real life, this is super close. When the light hits the silver dots they sparkle. It’s really subtle but cool. This shimmer additive is from Valspar and I added it to their Ultra White Devine paint. I picked up a couple of the paint samples from Target. Since I wasn’t using a full gallon of paint, I had to guess at how much additive to put in.
I’m going to use the additive when I paint the master bathroom too, in the wall color. But, I’ll use a different base color.
