Happy Sunday!! I hope you are all having a great day. It has been extra hot for a May day today. It is presently overcast and I hope it will rain. We need it so badly!!
Today I am popping in to share a few photos. I created two retirement cards.
I created these using this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #486 as inspiration. However I flipped it and took a little liberty.Rolling Clouds Die by Taylored Expressions for the top BUT it blended in too much on my cards because I stenciled over it and then added it to a stenciled background.
I cut these balloons out and added some black jute as the ties.
On my second card, I had to move the sentiment to cover mistake. A glob of glue from my finger got on the cloud die cut. I could not get it off with any of the methods I know of so I had to adhere the sentiment over the top and add a black strip at the bottom to ground the scooter.
I colored in the balloons with light pink Copic's instead of dark pink.
I am sending these out to some of the members of my union. I am the secretary and in charge of the correspondence.
On another note, I went on a little adventure with a friend yesterday. I rarely have time to do things like this so it was so fun. We went to an open house at an artist community. I did not take photos, though I wish I did. We also went to an antique warehouse. I did take some fun photos there. I love going in to these places to browse. It always reminds me of my childhood.
Did you remember pantyhose coming in this packaging? My mother used to buy these and then would give the eggs to us to play with.
