Look, I'm Stamping!
Stamper's Favorites in Moonlit Fog first on White Pure Luxury. Card base is Pure Luxury Silver Lining. Pardon the green tint in my sponging I picked up a dauber that looked like it went with my Gina K. Moonlit Fog pad but alas, not quite (Grass Green and Black? Fresh Asparagus and Fog? Anywho. All my color labels on my daubers have worn off, time to touch those up!) I layered over more Moonlit Fog ink and just a touch of Black Onyx at the corners, and stamped on just a bit of the sand image from my Gifts from the Sea set to add the speckles. I added a flourish from Carolyn's Elegant Flourishes stamped in Black Onyx. I intended for this to be a monochromatic card but since the green snuck in there (again, oops) I added come Crystal Stickles to the butterfly (colored just a bit with C-5 Copic), clear sparkling shimmer with a just touch of green glitter bits. Last I added some white organdy. That's it! This card is for this week's STV Mix it Up Monday challenge by Cat, to use something shiny! Lots of shiny here. :)
* We came close to missing the first day back. The entire winter break I had it in my mind first day back was Wednesday, Jan 8th. Yeah, I know that sounds random in the middle of the week, but they do that to us sometimes! I only found out because William came back from a friend's late Monday afternoon in tears saying his friend's mom brought him home because they needed to wrap up their play date earlier than usual since it was a school night, but we thought we still had one more evening of fun and staying up late. "No, that's not right, William, let me show you." Well, I checked and sure enough, they were headed back Tuesday! Whoops! Ugh! He was devastated. So, I had to run and get an emergency "last night of vacay" pizza and ice cream and family movie to take the edge off. Worked.
