I have a card to share tonight for One Layer Wednesday where Ardyth is the host (yes, she of birthday bash fame last week!) … and her challenge is to make a card in her style. Yes, you may be experiencing that deja vu feeling … however, as my birthday card for Ardyth wasn’t one layer, I get another opportunity to do Ardyth style … yay! Here it is …
I used a Paper Smooches image, coloured with watercolour pens in blue hues and stamped, overlapping, across the card. Mmm, I thought, it lacks something. Of course … glitter. So, I took some Stickles and started dotting … originally intending to highlight just the one circle … but I liked the effect so much, I just got carried away and did the lot. Then I went out.
You’d think that after three hours, the Stickles would be completely and crunchilly dry … at least I did. So, took the picture, loaded it up, looked at it … and now know that it wasn’t dry … can’t really miss the smudges where the first circle meets the second. I also now know that it wasn’t dry as I’ve looked down at my fingers … anyone ever had a particularly glittery keyboard? Anyone tried to clean it off? I haven’t dared look at the camera yet.
So, I apologise … it was a ‘perfect circles within circles’ graphic card, with glittered dots and including aqua as a colour choice (all so Ardyth). Now it’s not. I would have done it again if I’d been ahead of myself and made it days ago, but I wasn’t … and now it’s late, the deadline will be reached whilst I’m sleeping (which I hope will be shortly … cleanup permitting), and this is all I’ve got!
I was planning on having a quiet wander around blogland before bed … instead I’m off to explore the cleaning cupboard and see if there’s a hidden packet of ‘This’ll-Get-Glitter-Glue-Off-Anything’ that I can use to good effect. I’ll be back tomorrow. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments really are a delight! Anita 🙂
