I haven't been stamping much this week. It's tax time. :( And NO...I'm not getting to far to fast with that one.) And my MOJO went on Spring Break without me (though I'm heading for Phoenix for a small mini-Spring Break in a few hours!)
For this card I had created a Glimmer Mist background of my favorite colors for Gingersnap Creations - 3 FAVORITE COLORS (GC43) challenge. I like *ALL* the colors so it was hard to pick just three - I ended up with pink, blue, green. The Glimmer Mist is just sprayed and layered until I got the mix I liked. Spiltcoast's sketch challenge (SC271) worked perfectly for the large image. BUT I think this is missing something...not 100% happy with it.

I had extra sections of the Glimmer Mist sheet, so I cut it into strips. The flower was lightly watercolored with Distress Ink and glittered. This is for another Gingersnap Creation - Happy Birthday (GC44) challenge!

And my niece's new sister-in-law had surgery this week for a second cochlear implant. So I needed a quick get well card! This Penny Black dog wearing cat slippers was already colored. I just needed to finish a card. For inspiration, I used SCS sketch 223. Somebody sent me these Prima cork flowers. Not too impressed - they fall apart easily but it was a nice texture.
UPDATE: FETCHING SLIPPERS is out of print - sorry to tease you! :(
