You're out of this World!

I feel like I'm running around in circles flapping like the chickens in Chicken Run....so many things to do that I'm certain I've forgotten most of them.



The Alley Way Stamps is having a design team call - and I'm sharing the first of my cards for that:


Supplies: TAWS stamps; Simple Stories paper; classic small circle Nesties; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Versamark; Stampendous Black Detail EP; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; staple


I left this picture dark so you can see the world stamped with Versamark on the graph paper...love that little touch!


The sentiment is embossed with black detail EP, and the pencil was paper-pieced by first stamping on kraft card stock, then pink & grey, and twice on the yellow so that I could give it some extra dimension. The staple was a last-minute idea and I love it. I think it's my favourite part of the card!

I've made it to #210 in the Great Cath Hop - and I'm starting to go numb in my left hand. Besides being behind in my own regular blog comments I'm scared of making it worse, so I may be a quiet visitor for a while. Too many craft shows coming up to not be able to use my hand!

xoxo,
Jessi
