Hope everyone's having a grand Monday!
I stupidly stabbed my dominant thumb with a knife this weekend (while cleaning it... sigh...). At least today it doesn't hurt to type. But wow, what a horrible weekend... I couldn't do anything without help. Basically ended up just watching TV all weekend as I couldn't clean, couldn't cook, couldn't even open a water bottle... heck, even walking fast hurts since I tend to swing my arms (which then moves my hand and my thumb...)
Your dominant thumb is important...so don't try stabbing it with a knife...
I had put these two stamps side by side to determine which one I wanted to use. And I thought, huh, it looks like that bird is lonely without his other birdy friend.
And so a "Miss You" card evolved.
I pierced a trail almost as if the little birdie just left. Perhaps the little birdie went to college or perhaps the little birdie decided to move or left for a new job. Lots of situations. :)
I wanted to use some twine to make it appear as if the birdcages were hanging from the ceiling. I used my piercer to poke a hole into the top of the birdcage and thread my twine through. And to add that little extra touch, I tied tiny little bows with my tiny little hands. Probably the only time tiny hands are awesome.
I did run my clear souffle gel pen over the bird to give it a little something. It raises the texture ever so slightly and dries so much faster than glossy accents. :)
Ok, hope everyone has a good weekend and I'm going to go back to feeling sorry for my thumb (and my current inability to do anything including craft. Booo).
