TODAY'S THE BIG PARTY!

First a note about yesterdays card. I forgot to mention that the pear stamp is a single pear. I created the row of three pears using the masking technique. I stamped the first pear on the card stock. Then I stamped a second pear on a post-it note and cut it out making sure part of the image was over the sticky part of the note. I placed this on top of the first stamped image and then stamped the pear again on both sides of the original angling it as I wanted.

Now on to today.........
Today in about an hour is the birthday party that I am the activity director for.....stamping and card making with 8 little girls all around 7 years of age!!!!!! Yikes! How did I get myself into this....oh yeah I though it would be fun....I'll let you know. Right now I'm a little worried about the state my stamps and pads will finish up in.

The mother of the birthday girl told me she loved fairies and princesses so I made this card to take and give to her. In rel life it is not quite as dark as it scanned. The main card stock is Groovy Guava and the blue is last years in color Buckaroo Blue which I love and miss very much. (Though Blue Bayou is nice also).

I can't remember the name of the stamp set . It's a long retired set from SU. Dragons and Dreams or something like that. I colored it with a combination of Prisma and Copic markers. Mainly Prismas since I have more of those and I needed the fine point to get into small spaces. That's one thing I wish Copic had .The brush on one end but then the fine point on the other. Anyway it was a fun card to do. And now I must be off to the party......I'll let you know how it went later.......

Take a deeeeep breath, Suzanne, before you go! It helps just to accept that things will be hectic for a short time (the time you spend at the party) and peace awaits on the other side of that! Also, remember our stamps are made of car tyre rubber, so are pretty tough. You will prbably get some stains on your stamps, thogh if they are sealed it won;t be too bad and you can always resand and reseal them if it bothers you. I ket charge of all the tools when I did the workshops at the after school care places, and only took groups of four or five kids at a time. That kept it pretty civilised!

Let us know how you go! Your card is gorgeous. That's a great idea, giving one ot the hostess who might want to stamp with you later....
