Well hello there Fireflies! I'm so excited about the August challenge.... it's "A day at the beach!" (You can find more info about the challenge here.) Being as I moved from California to Idaho about a decade ago, it's been a while since I've seen the beach. (Insert sad face here.) But with the challenge for Firefly Crafts, I can remember what it was like to be there! (smile) So, here's my project:
I ADORE the wooden embellishments from Firefly, they are so awesome and add just a touch of whimsey. I used a ceramic plate and my Distress Ink minis and literally just rubbed them on the plate, then i spritzed it with water and laid the yardstick on it, squished it around a little and then pulled it up and set it to dry. Once dry (well mostly dry, because I'm totally impatient like that) I stamped some words using a stamp from Kitchen Sink (also found in the Firefly Craft store, but out of stock at the moment) .
I rarely do the mixed media type of cards, so this is WAY outside of my comfort zone. I'll have to keep practicing! ha ha ha
Happy crafting Fireflies!!!
