I Miss You

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.
