Hi! Today is the last day of the month so that means it is time for "Blogging with Friends" monthly challenge where a group of us challenge each other to create card(s) with a theme and then go visiting to see what we've all come up with! This month's theme is.
"Get Well" cards and it's brought to us by Queenbea.
I am very inspired by my friend Brenda (tessaduck) on SCS with the way she masks and stamps but I am afraid I fell FAR short on this one! It just didn't turn out the way I had planned and unfortunately time did not allow me to make another so here it is!
On Friday I put aside my "to do" list to play in the SCS challenge Mix-ability. It's a new challenge and I have been wanting to try it ever since it started. Instead of cleaning house, or creating cards for deadlines I played SCS "MIX9 use metal" Challenge.
My background behind the rounded frame is aluminum foil inked with Tim Holtz Alcohol Reinkers. I am still so new to the craft that I don't know how some things work so I wasn't sure that alcohol ink would dry on foil so knowing I didn't have much time in the day to play, I quickly inked up some foil before taking my kids to school so if it dried it would be dry by the time I got home. Just as I left I added a drop of yellow and didn't have time to use a brush to blend it. When I came home....a surprise! A Yellow circle that works quite nicely as a sun!
Dina Kowal has a great video out showing how to make beautiful art with foil. I didn't have time to follow all of it but I did use it to make my "chip board" bird! Psssstt...it's made from a cereal box!!!
Here is what I came up with
