Sorry i've been absent for a coupla days! It's been a mad house trying to get things in order before i leave town tomorrow plus on top of that it'll be SNEAK PEEK WEEK for Paper Makeup Stamps august release! Bad time to be out of town, huh? Well, i'll still have my computer and the ability to post, just not the ability to craft, so i need to have everything together and photographed before i leave! So thats what i've been busy doing! I DID have a post for yesterday, but an absentee camera made that null and void for me! grrrrr.
And here's the card i made for my hubster...
A little background on the freebie. This is one of the ones that i put together. Since i'm leaving town, and then the day before i get back my hubby will be leaving town (bad timing on our parts) i wanted to make a card to tuck into his bag. His friends can then just tease him about it his whole hiking trip. hehe. When i was looking for a good quote thru my quote book... i came across this and fell in love all over again from the first time i found it. It very much describes my husband and i (and any couple in love really). No one is perfect. We all have our flaws and differences. But when it boils down to it, those differences fill in each other. My husbands strengths fill my flaws and vice versa. We really are a nice pair the two of us, if i do say so myself. :)
Ok, the in depth details about the card... if you dont care about the chatter, just skip down to "the deets" and it will give you the product only low down!
I will say i was quite pleased by how things turned out! But i've gotten a little obsessed with my copic airbrush! You can make anything work for you! Love that! I really wanted some black flowers. Ironically i wanted the black flowers i saw while shopping at Michael's the other day with my friend Rachel. (check out her blog candy!). But I didnt buy them. What to do now?! So i took some orange flowers i bought in the flower department at Hobby Lobby and then airbrushed them black. It worked nicely. But they werent shimmery like the ones at Michael's. So i took my Baby's Breath Spritz and shimmerized them. You might remember i did this same thing the other day with some ivory flowers making them teal for my card. Oh how i love the airbrush!
here's a close up photo...
You'll notice too have pretty and shimmery my swirls are! I used my Quickcutz Flourish die to cut out some black paper. And then i took my Pitch Black spica pen and just colored them in. Easy as that! Very pretty outcome... no messy glitter! :)
