Cat Tails


Finished this card for one of Vivian's swaps last night. This swap - employ the "Split Negative" technique. The cattail image illustrates the technique.

I liked the way this card turned out. It might actually be useful as a card for a man's birthday or even Father's Day, because it isn't too feminine looking. But..it does have ribbon and purple! So for the very "manly" man (ie. homophobe!)...well...this wouldn't work.

The images are from Unity Stamp Company. The ribbon, card stock and ink are from Stampin Up!, the embossing powder is an old one of mine from Judi-Kins, and the design paper is from DCWV.

This is my very last swap for May...and I think it's my last swap for awhile (besides a couple on-going ones I signed up for). Which is good, because I really needed a break. I was overdoing it. This will give me a chance to focus on techniques, challenges, or organizing and purging my supplies. I can also concentrate on some of my other hobbies - primarily jewelry and photography. And also some sewing. I have a few sewing projects in mind that combine stamping, painting, and sewing...usable mixed media.

And most importantly during the summer, I like being outdoors biking, jogging, camping, rock climbing. So, I will definitely be doing more of that...and taking more photos! AND...HOPEFULLY, taking a few pounds off the derriere (and south).

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
