Since this is a FWF post, most of you are probably just dropping by to see the Unity project...but for the rest of you: I'm back! After an almost-3-month blogging hiatus, I finally found the bug again. My creating bug didn't go anywhere (you should SEE all the layouts I've been cranking out), but the whole photo-editing-writing-uploading-commenting thing was wearing on me for some reason. I missed having an audience of crafty blog friends, though. Happy to be back. :)
Ok, enough of that. How about a card?
I made this one a month ago for our godson's 7th birthday (Can't believe he's SEVEN! That's insane). I actually started by stamping a whole 9x12" sheet of watercolor paper with the bike background from April's Kit of the Month in Staz-On. Then I broke out my old-skool Crayola watercolors (you know, the little oval pans in the plastic case?) and randomly added citrus-hued blotches over the bikes. It made me happy to get all painty! I trimmed out a panel for my card front and drew the frame around it.
I almost never do sticker sentiments on cards for some reason, but I needed something that would really stand out, so I turned to my trusty October Afternoon alphas. The little banner-y things underneath that are the ribbon part of the blue ribbon punch from Jenni Bowlin, made from a handful of scraps that were on my desk. Stickers and punch are both from Scrappy Chic. A couple black accents and I called it good.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend, and I really do think I'll be back soon with more.
