Hello! I can’t believe this week has gone by so fast! Every day, I’m at my store entering each and every bottle on the shelf into the new point of sale system, figuring prices, writing descriptions, adding vendors and scanning codes in. It’s a very lengthy process and one that I’m regretting at the moment! We could have been open back in November if I hadn’t insisted upon this system…I know I’ll be happy to have it once it’s all complete though.
Since I haven’t had much creative mojo flowing, I thought I’d show the card I made for my dad’s birthday last month. It also fits in with the current Moxie Fab Challenge: Trendy Star Power.
I love blending distress inks…so easy to do and neat to see the colors melt together when spritzed with a little water. I embossed the star chart and sentiment on watercolor paper. The star trail is actually pointing to Sagittarius, which is my dad’s zodiac sign. One of those fun little details that you have to have a microscope to see. I blended about 5 different inks here, spritzed it with water and sprinkled it with salt. I haven’t had much luck with this technique, so if I try it again, I will use a rock salt instead of table salt. A few wooden stars as a little accent and voila! Hope you’re having a splendid day!
