Good morning!!! A bit of a rushed one here, but that’s another whole story that I won’t bore you with, lol. The exciting thing is, is that today is the reminder post day for the new challenge at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. The 2 design teams have switched, so the Aurora team is doing the reminder post, and the Stella team introduces the challenges for the rest of the year.
The current challenge is a Sketch, on of my favorite types of challenge. And this sketch is a doozy…one that I have saved for future use!!! And heeeeere it is…………….
I used Orchids In the Rain (available HERE at aurorawings.com and HERE at the AW Etsy Store) and Orchid Corner (HERE at aurorawings.com and HERE at Etsy). I colored both images up with my Copics, adding some clear Nuvo drops to it to look like rain drops… It’s been a long time since I did a water shaker/gel shaker….so I set to work doing that for this project. I added the last bit of hair gel and some glitter to a bag, and had everything laid out, trying to figure the best way to assemble. I went to work and stopped for groceries on the way home. When I got home, I tossed my grocery bags on the counter, where my dog couldn’t get in them….well….they slipped, and I dove for them, caught them, and tossed the bag up….onto my project – more specifically, onto the darn bag of gel. It burst!!! Gel plus ink jet ink makes a big mess, and smears, and way more work for Susan!!! You’d think that that would teach me to do my crafting in the craft room, not the kitchen, right?? WRONG!! I did the second one in the kitchen as well, and will probably continue to do so, lol. Anyway, I digress. After I had the images colored again, and the card layers prepared with windows cut, I was ready to prepare the bag of gel (see, I was smart this time, I left the gel to the very end, so it couldn’t wreck everything!). Look back to where I wrote…LAST BIT of hair gel….in the first bag….oy!! I was not in the mood to run to the store to get more hair gel by that time!!! I had hand sanitizer gel, though, lol, so I used that 🙂 After putting things all together again, I added some silver dots and a silver sentiment, die cut from mirror CS. I so hope you can join in the fun at the AWCB with this great sketch, the possibilities are endless!!!
Here’s a few more shots of my project, to show some detail, and maybe the gel bag a bit better…
