A Rainy Easter Blessing and a Card



Wishing everyone a blessed Easter! It is raining here and there is a possibility of snow showers today as well. This is the winter that doesn't want to end! Unfortunately the weather has once again set off my brain disorders and I’m grounded for the day – my speech is back to being so weird no one could understand me….and some would think I was high on drugs or alcohol. I don’t leave the house when I’m like this. But its okay, this too shall pass.

I had a question last week from one of my faithful followers wondering if I prefer Distress Paint or Distress Ink. I did answer her directly but here is what I said in case others want to know. I only have two Distress Paint bottles, one white and one brown that were on a clearance sale for, I think, $1.00 each. I don’t see any difference in that paint then the other paint I’ve used for years for tole painting….except for the sponge top. However, I find the sponge top gets hard if not used frequently and I normally end up taking off the top and just pouring it out. I suppose if I only had Distress paint and used it more often that would not happen but I really don’t know. I believe you can now buy the sponge tops that fit on the other brands of acrylic paint bottles but I like using a brush so I’ve never looked for them. I do LOVE my Distress Inks though. I love how they blend together and yet separate when you want it to look like droplets forming. If any others have an opinion on this, feel free to share on the comments.

I realized when I was going to bed Thursday that I forgot to post my card; forgot to post it on Friday and Saturday too. It wasn’t because I was that busy either, just simply forgot. So, while I was strolling through some of the blogs that I view I realized that I still had time to post the card I made for the challenge at: www.alwaysplayingwithpaper.blogspot.com which was an “anything goes” challenge.


I love blue and yellow together. Such happy colours! This is another Stamping Bella stamp that was coloured with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. These are quite quick to colour and I enjoy colouring them while watching hockey, and now baseball, on television. All the paper is from the stash. I hand cut the two simple banners and the other blue one on top was die cut twice and then taped together at the back to make it longer. The layers were die cut with my Spellbinders' create-a-card die set. The sentiment is from that word die set I bought that I thought was all one word and turned it cut each letter separately….groan! And yes, I noticed that the “a” in birthday was backwards and corrected it. Picking out each letter is more time consuming that I like to spend doing but if I buy something, I'm determined to use it!

That’s all for a rainy Easter Sunday, April-05-15

Cheers
Violet
