I Miss You

Monday, 22 February 2021

It is Day 22 of the Random Act of Cardness challenges, and the post today is Missing You, which is my post.

Throughout this Pandemic I have rarely seen my friends, and I am missing them a lot. We all get the situation, and as we are somewhat older in life, we pay attention. But being as I am a card maker, I am all about sending cards to them, and this is one of those cards.

My previous card was all about "Pink". I kept with that theme for today's card too but in a totally different design. Today I am using a stencil, left over scraps, Picked Raspberry Oxide ink, a sentiment die, Stickles, glitter card stock and sequins. 

My card stock is Strathmore Bristol Smooth card. I wanted to use this as there is a fair amount of liquid in the stickles that causes regular card to curl somewhat. I did not have that problem with the Bristol card.

Using the Bristol card and my stencil I applied the distress oxide lightly to the stencil front. If you want a darker colour you would apply a heavier layer of ink. I wanted the stencilling light as I was using a dark card base. 

I then positioned the stencil, ink facing up, over the Bristol card and using my palette knife applied the Stickles in a thin layer randomly over the stencil. The ink is dragged in when applying the Stickles, which gives the pink colour tone. I set the piece aside to dry.

You might remember the "Pink" Anemone card I did last week. I had left over from the card front that I used to die cut the shadow of my sentiment from for today's card. I added the Picked Raspberry Oxide to the die piece until it was a dark colour. I then die cut the words from my white glitter card and attached to the shadow with Nuvo adhesive. 

I then stamped and die cut the little bird, who represents my bird CC, from a background that I had previously done. 

That brings me to the eggs in my pictures. CC had one yesterday under my desk while I was working, and had the second one today while I was making this card. She had a previous one a few days ago. They are not fertilized, so I take them away from her as she will stress herself out trying to sit on them.  

To finish up my card I attached the stencil panel to my dark pink card base. Using foam tape I then attached the sentiment strip, and with foam squares I attached the bird. A few crystal gems and pink sequins finished my card.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today, and I thank you for your visit. Following are Affiliate links for the products I have used today, at no additional cost to you. I thank you for your support.
