#the100dayproject : handmade card 29/100-2 : believe in yourself

today was the longest day in the history of ever! whew! i'm so happy that work is over and a little relieved that today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on a 1-layer card. my energy is seriously lacking!

in addition to my energy lacking, my mojo isn't 100% and i'm not quite sure why, so while i finished today's card, it's not my best work ever. however, i'm still happy that i completed it and that i was able to pull out some new supplies from concord and 9th

my card for today was inspired by a technique i saw on social media, combining distress ink and water to create a watercolor like effect. i received two packages of happy mail in the form of supplies today [#quarantine2020 has definitely increased my online shopping!] and i wanted to use one of the new sets.

so i've had this idea in my mind for quite some time and tonight, despite it being super late when i got home from work, i decided to try it. 

i am so happy that i did because i absolutely love it. i ended up making two cards in the same style for two friends & i cannot wait to hand deliver them! i'm also sharing a bunch of photos because i'm just so happy with the results!

the black lines around the perimeter of the envelope were added with one of my favorite pens. it's a black glaze pen and it adds the slightest bit of texture but writes so smoothly. it is also reflective in the light. 

as for the card itself - i'll apologize now to anyone who might get or be offended [sorry momma!] with the saying on this card. i assure everyone it's all in good fun! [plus it's from the amazing cathy zielske stamp set and you all know how much i adore her.]

it's certainly not the most complex card, but one thing i really stand behind is that it's not how fancy a card is or how much you write inside, but the fact that you took the time to pick out a card and drop it in the mail. we need to be sharing as much handmade happiness as we can right now.
