I've got a day off and my sister asked me to go on a shopping trip to Spokane with her so I'll be heading out soon for a long day of driving and hopefully good deals. ;)
Today's card features Garden Gnome Tilly and I've had this particular image stamped and sitting on my desk since last May. How do I know this? Because she was a test run for a video that I did on adding pattern to stamped images. So it felt very good to finally color her up and get her onto a card of her own. All I had to do was grab a paper scrap and color her up to match all the great colors in it. It's kinda funny how when I am matching such specific color combos the character usually looks pretty odd and random until I add them to the card. It's not until those last moments that all the colors I've used finally come together and look right. I'm always a little relieved when I glue them down and they don't look like mis-matched ragamuffins anymore, LOL!
Ok, time for me to scoot. I probably won't be getting back until late so no guarantees that there will be a new card to share tomorrow.
