Just A Note

Hello and welcome to another rainy, storm filled day in Iowa.  Severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings means it is Spring.  I love the rain but the stormy stuff I can so do without.

Today I wanted to share another lesson project I made during a recent class I took at Altenew Academy.  I had the the privilege to win a free class and it was For the Love of Color.  It shared various ways to add color to your cards and it was such fun.  This card was done using sticky tape and glitter.  I had never thought of using the two together.  Once the glitter was applied to the sticky tape, we used markers to lay down the color.  In my case, they were the Stampin' Write Markers from Stampin' Up!  You can use alcohol markers but the glitter can do a real number on the brushes.  The markers I used held up well and I didn't have any frayed brushes when done.  I love how this one turned out and will likely use this technique again.

The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches worked perfectly for this card.  The only thing I changed was placing my sentiment at the top rather than at the bottom. 

Stamp Set:  Stitched Stems Stamp & Die Combo (Taylored Expressions)
Ink:  Oreo Hybrid (Taylored Expressions)
Stampin' Write Markers:  Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Sweet Sugar plum, Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron (Stampin' Up!)
Dies:  Stitched Oval Stacklets Dies, Double-ended Flag Stacklets Dies (Taylored Expressions)
Other:  Brick Embossing Folder (Taylored Expressions), Scor-Tape (Scor-Pal), Glitter

The sketch I used is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
