Hey there, crafty friends.
Guess what its doing outside, this fine Spring morning in Ontario?
Snowing fit to beat the band.
PERFECT day to stay inside and CRAFT.
And we have the perfect recipe for you, here at the Dynamic Duos:
Yep, its Triple Threat week! THREE delicious colours to play with.
This week, I wanted to experiment with some water-colouring effects. LOTS of that out and about on the internet. Did I mention my penance this year for Lent? NO purchasing of craft supplies for the whole 40 days... So, making use of what I have on hand, I first heat-embossed this great subway-art design from Fresh-Squeezed Stamps:
As I didn't have anything close, my SU friend Hayley gave me some Rich Razzleberry cardstock (WHAT a delicious colour!). It seemed to deserve centre-stage on this card. So I rummaged through my button and bling collection to come up with this final product:
Further note the cross-stitching along the bottom (more, sadly retired Fresh-squeezed stamps) and the über-cute scissors charm! (Close to my Heart jewelry supplies).
I just love how this turned out, and some crafty friend will be the lucky recipient!
