It is birthday card making time…. Yup I make all of my family birthday cards just once a year and get them completely ready to mail. I started this last year and I have found that mailing cards to family this year has been a snap.
So I was working away in my scraproom, trying a new technique and Mike caught me making a mess. What was the first thing I thought of when I heard the camera? Oh, I hope that was a good angle to catch artwork? NOPE! My first thought was …. Crap.. do I have a bra on? I scrap so often in the middle of the night in my jammies that you just never know :-)
And um…. yes I did.
I am so glad I was having a half way decent hair day
I am spraying CTMH paper flowers with re-inker to match the cardstock that I am using to make the birthday cards.
I think I need to make an INK BOX to contain the overspray.
The ink is: a little alcohol, water and a few drop of re-inker in a spray bottle. Shake until mixed and spray. Depending on how dark you want the color to be you may need to let your art dry and re-coat. I found that 2 coats worked great for these flowers.
After learning this trick I think I am only going to buy White Daisy Variety Pack Flowers (Z1300 $5.95) from now on. You get 75 flowers in each pack in 3 different sizes.
I love that I can make them match any project I am working on.
This card is make using the Zippiddee Level 2 Paper. I am still using that one pack of paper to make cards. BTW did you know that the cards you find in the store have a 200% profit. I think I will keep making my own cards and use that savings to …. BUY MORE SCRAPBOOKING SUPPLIES (hee hee)
