Thinking of You ~ Project of the Day #14

Hello Crafty Friends,

Woke up this morning and went for a walk at the park with a friend...great way to start the day. Came home and worked on a list of things to do and accomplished 3/4 of it. Then I took a nice, long nap. I'd say this has been a productive day! 

After watching numerous videos yesterday I finally was able to get some inking done. I practiced a little blending, but I am not quite pleased yet, so I decided to try a stencil (thanks to a Jennifer McQuire video). I only have a few stencils in my collection and polka dots are my favorite; therefore, I selected this one first.

I used five different Ranger Distress inks to create the rainbow effect. I only had two round blending tools and had to change out the pads, so I called my son while he was running an errand and asked him to pick me up another pack. He did!

The stamped sentiment is by Lawn Fawn ~ Scripty Sayings and I used Ebony embossing powder. My daughter actually picked out the saying since she leaves for college this Sunday. She said I need to send this to her in a care package. One of her favorite colors is orange, which is why I chose that sparkly washi tape by Queen & Co.

I matched the sequins with the inks and adhered them with Tombow glue. The card base is MFT 100 lb paper ~ Orange Fizz.
Time to continue working on my list. I still have a couple "things" to cross off so I can say "DONE!". Tomorrow is Friday already. This week sure did go by quick. I hope the rest of the summer doesn't fly by...I have a lot more I still want to do.

Stay Creative,
