A Very Late DICC
Hi, my name is Alison and I have lost my mojo. I have no idea where it went...but I am a little concerned that it is on summer vacation. I've had a bunch of thing I've wanted/needed to do, but I just can't get them to come to fruition. Which is frustrating on many levels. Granted, I have wanted to take things easy lately, to enjoy my time with the kids as much as possible before school starts, but I feel a little lost when it comes to my crafts right now. I think I know why....but I wish I could just get over what I am bummed about and just move on and start making stuff again. But enough of the sobbing....I managed to finally get my DICC project done, which is really great since a.) we were sponsored by Just Some Lines, and b.) I'm the one that came up with this itinerary. Go me for being a slacker. Here's my itinerary...which I think is a pretty good one, by the way.
3. Time (either use a clock or the word)
4. Inked Edges
5. Sketch (find a sketch challenge and use it!)
8. Use a rubber! (stamp, that is!)
10. Non-craft item
For my card, I used #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8. Not too shabby!
I used Little Witch from Just Some Lines. I thought she was so sweet. And in my never-ending quest to find fabulous Halloween stuff, I knew she would be perfect in my collection. I colored her with my watercolor markers and my Copics.
I didn't blend my colors as much as I normally do. I wanted it to be kind of brushy. Which actually really worked out because of the way I did my background. For that, I used a Tim Holtz screen with an orange Glimmer Mist. I brushed the color on with a fan brush.
I inked the edges with Distress Ink, I used some Stickles around my Little Witch, and I added my sentiment (from Smeared Ink) for a little bit more teal ('cause you can never have too much teal.). Overall, I think it's sweet...for a Halloween card. Not to bad considering how blah I've been feeling. Though, my family time has been fabulous. Which, really, is the most important thing. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
