Try It Thursday

I tried my hand at making the hydrangea in this stamp set Pink. My card on Monday used 2 two colors on the flowers, this one uses three colors. I really like the depth it gives. I didn't cut this one out so I created a shadow around the image. To do this, I used my blender pen and my Going Gray ink pad to trace an outline around the flower.

For Try It Thursday I figured I would try to putting some lacing on my card. I figured I'd start simple and do it sneaker style (no sure if that's really a style, lol) but I might make another one where I kinda rip a V shape in my paper, distress it and put this lacing in it to look like a corset. We'll see if I have time for that.

I had to whip out my tool kit for this card cause the first row of eyelets was too far into the cardstock for my crop-a-dile to reach. I forgot how much of a pain in the butt eyelets were before I got my beloved Crop-a-dile. I mentioned yesterday that I stamp when my little boy naps. Have you ever tried to hammer quietly? Take it from me, it does work!!! I ended up in my back yard. LMBO.
