The time is flying by me faster than I can count. This is the card I made for our last card swap of the year with my stamping group. We meet during the school year and take time off in the summer. We'll get back to it in September. The theme was sympathy and this single layer card was a personal challenge for me. I'm trying to get back to a simpler way of stamping. The grey block behind the image is direct to paper with a grey inkpad. It didn't cover completely which was a happy accident. I stamped the silhouette over it with versafine ink and the same ink with the butterfly which is fussy cut out and the sentiment. A few gems finish off this simple design. I think it works for sympathy or even for illness or other losses.
In other news around here. One month left of the school year. I'm teaching bunches. I was at the high school all week and even taught a couple of Kyle's classes this week and we both survived.
I've been having a blast making plans for CHA and creating class samples. So many exciting things happening this summer. I'll share my schedule when it's complete. I hope to meet up with lots of artsy friends while I'm in Chicago. It's my first time there and I'm hoping to sneak in a few fun Chicago snacks and sites before all the CHA fun begins. If you have any suggestions or tips, please share them.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by today!
