“Here be dragons” that is why you always have to be careful when you leave your front door. You never know what you are going to run into. I kind of like the idea that on your birthday it would allow you to see the magical creatures of the world. Especially if you realized that they were around you every other day as well just going about there lives and coexisting and not being a threat. I am sure that it would go bad, but I like to think it could be a special kind of treat.
This was a great chance to use my birthday stamp! If you are wondering why the stamp on this card isn’t listed in the tools section on my blog, it is because it is a super special stamp. I just realized why what I thought didn’t work right yesterday actually did, I just didn’t realize it was. That is what happens when I take a bit of a break I guess.
Bookmarking things to go back to and try later, and then forgetting to go back and try them is one of the things Gina is best at! This challenge was a good boot in the butt to get me to go look at those bookmarks. I have wanted to try this one for so long, but I needed to go get some watercolor paper (right now I only have small scraps) so off to the craft store we ventured this weekend. My nephew is awesome at drawing (which I admire to no end) so we got him a sketch pad to start working in.
This was a fun card to make. I am planning on making a video on how I made it, I just need to do so…
Wow, did this card take a lot of work! I am not sure that I am all that happy with it, but there was definitely a point of no return when I realized how many hours had been spent already. I don’t hate it, I just don’t love it, and I wanted to love it a lot more after spending so much time working on it. Why does it work that way?
