Hello everyone, and welcome to my post as a guest designer for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge SOSS#8. The challenge this week is "C is for Crap." We're challenging you to use something you just had to buy, but have seldom used it since you bought it. I know most of us can relate to that challenge, and I know I'm among those numbers! LOL
For my card, I've used some glossy cardstock I bought perhaps 10 years ago, and it still sits in my stash, practically unused. I was recently inspired by this card, and decided to pull out that glossy cardstock and use it again. The stamp is by Tim Holtz, and I will never part with this stamp as it makes beautiful cards! I stamped the image with Versamark Black ink, and heat embossed it with clear ep. I sponged with tangergine, turquoise, and finally daffodil inks, then stamped some birds, butterflies, and a dragonfly with brilliance platinum planet ink for a hologram look. I'd been to a craft show recently that used this technique and the cards were beautiful!
The sentiment is by Studio Calico and the feather is from Memory Box.
I could make this a nice masculine birthday card with a birthday sentiment inside, or I could make it snarky by splattering some white ink inside with a sentiment like "And so do the birds...." Hah! I think I'll wait until it's time to use it and then decide on the inside sentiment!
Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you all a snarky sisterhood kind of day! Keep smiling :)
