I have been toying around with the idea of a blog update for some time now. I am not much of a computer techy person so this was not as easy as it may have seemed for me. I wanted something to reflect the person I am. I like simple, clean lines and just a touch of whimsy. I searched Etsy for pre-designed blogs and I decided on a shop call The Blog Shop. Citra was such a wonderful person to work with and she gave me exactly the type of look I was going for. I may still have a few tweeks here and there, but nothing major. I am hoping that this new look will help me want to blog more in 2015.
Ok, onto more fun stuff. Today I want to share a birthday card that I made for my sister. (Happy Birthday, Nikki!) I used deli paper and stamped it with Memento black ink. Once dried, I sprayed it with three colors of Distress Sprays and blended the colors with water. I stamped the image using black ink and colored it in using Copic markers. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the cupcake icing for a bit of sparkle. I then used the coordinating dies to cut my images out and added foam tape to the pieces for dimension.
