New Technique Card


Well, Christmas is over for another year. Hope everyone enjoyed the day. It was pretty quiet here as we had no family home this year....and we had a major snow storm Christmas Eve which definitely put a damper on things. 
Brrrr. It is bitter cold here again today. The high for today is

-13C (8.6F) but it feels like -21C (-5.8F). Tonight it is going down to the -21 and will feel like -28C (-18F).

This is how I feel about winter:




I found this on the Internet and it is exactly how I feel about winter. I’m very much a hot summer person! Hubby hates winter more than I do! We have to force ourselves to go out in the winter.

I have one more Christmas item to show you before I post today’s card but I didn’t make it – my very crafty/artistic 7 year old grandson, Finn, made this.  


 Love it! He’s quite the boy.

Today’s card is one I made using what I call the squish and turn technique.

 

I smeared some Distress inks on piece of plastic that I keep on hand for these techniques; squirted water on them; rubbed my fingers through them a bit to blend…just a bit or you will get brown mud colouring…laid a piece of white cardstock on top and twisted it a bit. Picked it up and let it dry. I sort of wanted a landscape scene and this one turned out pretty good for what I wanted. So, I stamped the bare tree – Inkadinkado stamp – some falling leaves from a very old Stampin’ Up set and some birds and bushes. Tied the ribbon around it; mounted it on black cardstock and then on the mauve card base. The sentiment is a peel-off.

That’s all for a bitter cold Wednesday, December 27, 2017.

Cheers
