i haven't posted a card for a while. and i can play along with friends with flair this week! i have loved this huge poppy stamp since the first time i saw it on the unity website.  but i didn't get it because i had no idea what i would do with it.  i finally gave in and got it.  i made a set of cards like this one in four different colors. so simple!

stamps:  unity, donna downey
cardstock:  tangerine tango, white
ink: tangerine tango, onyx black

this was kind of an uphill battle for me!  i loved what sandee from frosted designs did and thought i would try it out.  little did i know i actually had pipettes to work with!  the technique was a little frustrating for me but i did like the finished project.  it's fun experimenting (and a little aggravating!) with new techniques to see what you do and don't like! thanks for the push, again!!

supplies:  water colors, india ink, black pen, white pen

sing your song...

i've been browsing on pinterest the past few days. love finding inspiration there. of course it's a bad place for someone with a short attention span.  you click on one thing, then another, then 20 minutes later you have forgotten what you were looking for in the first place and have been to like 30 blogs!!  i found this cute tutorial from jenny hall and knew i wanted to do something similar...cause i love cute little birds like that.  here's what i ended up with.

one of my mixed media monday night peeps has a tutorial every sunday over at frosted designs.  i needed a little jump start on my mojo and i'm a sucker for birds.  so i decided to try this one out.  i didn't do well with leaving the "white space", but i love it anyway!
