Back from a week away from the fam. Such a great time at the Stampin' Up! Convention and so nice not to cook or clean.
Home now and ready to enjoy the second half of the summer. Okay, on to the post!
Today is my Weekly Smeared Ink Project which was inspired by the Very Sketchy Card sketch for July over at the Smeared and Smudged Forum. I had colored in this image before I left and have been thinking on how to use it. My layers are a bit different but the base structure is there.
The third week after school was out, I kept hearing from my kids that they were so boooorrrreeed. Well I gave them plenty of options, but always "no." So this card is for all those kids who have absolutely NOTHING to do during the summer. =)
The Details Just Lying Around
Image is from a Smeared Ink digital set called Stitchy Situation. Printed out onto Whisper White card stock and colored in with Blendabilities. Little guy was fussy cut and adhered onto background.
Background is homemade gelli plate creation.
Journaling pen used to write in "SO BORED" and some doodling, a sad try at some Zentangle. Words were colored in with pink Blendabilty.
Bottom words "save me" are made with journaling pen and old scrap of paper from another project.
Bottom paper is from Sizzix Little Sizzles Classic paper pack.
Card base is Chocolate Chip card stock.
Ribbon is Venetian Crochet Trim, Linen Thread, and Burlap Ribbon.
New mini staples from the Handheld Stapler, which will be offered in the upcoming SU! Holiday catalog.
