Last weekend, I went on a little trip to chill with some fabulously wonderful crafty girls! (Big waves to Pat, Lindsay, Tara, Rebecca, Linda, Steph, and Kirsty!) And while I was on my little trip I picked up new toys! :) When I got back, my husband greeted me with a kiss and then kindly said "Wow, you didn't buy as much as I expected". Ah, true love!
This week, work brought me up to the state of New Hampshire. Typically, I don't rent cars when I'm on a trip because I hate driving. I take taxis and walk when at all possible. However, in this case, I had no choice but to drive an hour from the airport to the client site. That said, the Northeast had the loveliest leaves at this time of year... so it was one lovely drive (well, at least the part of it I did in daylight...)
The leaves are all from Blessed by You. I stamped the leaves individually with a watermark ink. Then brushed different colors of the Perfect Pearls Metallics. I was ok if the colors merged a little... gives it character.The frame from Very Vintage Labels No. 1 and again, it was brushed with one of the perfect pearl powders. Ok, I went a little powder happy. ;-)
I also sprayed the entire card with a mix of water and gold perfect pearls. It gives the entire card a subtle shine although it does not show up in the photo. It's as if the kraft cardstock has specks of gold in it. Since I didn't want droplets, I sprayed pretty far away and just let the mist fall onto the card.
I love the fall leaves and the Northeast but it also made me super sick. My husband thinks my getting a flu shot right before traveling didn't help... I think its sitting next to a lady on the plane who didn't know how to cover her mouth... eh, who knows. Back to bed for me! (I will apologize now that I'll probably go through the waltz a little slower than my normal pace)
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
