At 45, I picked up my first stamp and that was it: Now, I can throw the word ‘ephemera’ around with confidence, yet struggle with inappropriate feelings for chipboard. I'm not very polished and I'm still trying to get the hang of 'winning friends and influencing people', but for some crazy reason, this papercraft thing and I FIT! My kids are covered with glitter, my husband wonders how you injure yourself with Stickles, but we all agree on this: I'm a MUCH better person when I'm here!
Our color palette was Kraft, Blushing Bride, Primrose, White and Pink Pirouette.
In order for me to process all those colors, I kept thinking of what kind of scene I could create out of all of them-WITHOUT having some kind of nervous breakdown.
The girls in the ColorQ challenge are fantastic. Chances are, I'll be thrown out for over-the-top 'ness', or something like that so why try to sneak in and hope I won't be noticed? I'm going in with guns...I mean...ink pads a'blazin'.
For the record, I think it loses a little something in the 'ink pads' part.
So here it is and let's hope that the ColorQ posse won't be waiting for me tomorrow morning, saying nothing...only holding up their cards, one by one, and shaming me.
You know that's my nightmare, right? Except it's Tim Holtz and his Goons. I shudder to even think about it.
I'm going to bed...I'm flat out exhausted! This Queen stuff is hard business, I need a cookie and some decaf to actually simmer down from a hard workday of making cards.
