Life is kinda back to NORMAL ..as normal as any of us are here...and believe me, none of us have ever described ourselves as normal.
BUT, October is ALWAYS a very, very busy month with Band Competitions, Painting the Band Boards, Kitting up for classes, cutting down the garden, Soccer Tournaments, and this year, Emma's (quite successful) eye surgery.
Anyway, I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel, with relaxing around the corner.
All kits are done and ready to go for classes. WHEW! to that.
Only 2 seats left for Elmhurst. THAT should be a really fun day with old friends.
Anyway, it was time to play around a bit today. Meet a deadline for Inspiration Emporium's November DT Challenge.
This is a a card I made...I know, don't faint dead away....I MADE A CARD!!!
I started with a piece of Manila cardstock sprayed with Dylusions Sprays 1st.
After I dried it with the Heat-it Tool, I added Copper Perfect Pearls Mists.
VERY COOL in person.
Then I stamped the Oak and Maple leaves from the Autumn Blueprint collection of Tim Holtz's set with Black Soot Distress Ink and embossed them.
I cut out the leaves. Love how they turned out!
Then I had a bit of Shrink Plastic left that I'd gessoed before.....SO I stamped the Acorn 2 times, cut out, shrunk them down, and colored them in with Markers.
The calendar papers were cut apart from Tim's Paper Stash for what I'd consider the Fall months.
And last, the Metal Foil Taped die cut Grungeboard letters were embossed through the Vagabond machine.
Layer it all up with foam tape, add some white pen marks and it's a done deal.
So, check out the other DT members wonderful pieces here...and don't forget to enter the Challenge to win a $50 shopping spree!!!!
You can't win if you don't enter.
And one last thing...several of my friends and I are in the new Just Steampunk II magazine.
It's loaded with over 300 pictures of fabulous Dolls, Jewelry, Home Decor and more..
...so check it out HERE.
This is one of the pieces I have in there. A cuff bracelet is there, too.
Be well, and Be safe....everyone.
