Ink Or Dye

Our March meeting was filled with fun and laughter.  We’re all very excited about the April 2nd grand opening of Ramona’s new store.  We cannot wait!

Our card swap theme this month was “Use a Quote”.

My quote was “Dreams come a size too big so we can grow into them.”  The flash on my camera washed it out, but my card features an elegant technique we did last year called “Bargello”.

I received Marian’s card.  Her quote was “I have sometimes thought a woman’s nature is like a great house full of rooms.”  Marian is known for her shaker cards and this one is another beautiful example!

Our ATC swap theme was “If I Won the Lottery”.

Of course, my celebration over winning the lottery would not be complete without a trip to Savannah.  (Or a permanent move there for that matter!)  And what trip to Savannah isn’t complete without a toasting of martinis at Conrad Aiken’s grave in Bonaventure Cemetary!

The ATC I received was again from Marian who created a beautiful shoreline.  She used an actual lottery ticket and vellum to create the soft background.  So creative!

Ramona led our project this month which was a slider card.  The directions were a bit confusing at first, but with her guidance we are all now masters.  I can’t wait to make more of these.

My original intent was to get my Mothers Day cards made.  I chose to use one of the acrylic stamp sets I haven’t tried before.  It was supposed to be flowers and swirls but instead turned out to look more like paint splotches. Not exactly what I had in mind, so I will be recreating my slider cards with different images.  And this stamp set will be moving from the “Flower” box over to the “Background and Designs” box!
