#the100dayproject : handmade card 76/100-2 : friend like you
today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.

i started the front of the card with a white panel that i decided to stencil. i masked off sections of the stencil creating a bit of diagonal design line down and across the panel. beginning at the top i used squeezed lemonade distress ink and gently applied color. as i moved down the stencil i intensified the color and near the bottom i added some mustard seed. using black ink i stamped the sentiment "have a happy day" which is a fun pixelated font.

social media can be an amazing thing!

a few months back i saw a design on a card that blew me away - so i looked to see what products were used and i'm fairly certain that right there and then i pushed the "add to cart" button.
