I'm feeling very scattered these days, and I don't like it. I'm not sure if it is because there is more to do, or if I can't get my brain organized, but I jump from one job to the next and never complete the previous one. Maybe it's a case of AAADD or Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. All I know is that I had better get a handle on it soon!
Speaking of scattered, Seasonally Scattered is the name of the stamp set I used to make this fall themed thank you card, and I like the stamp set much better than I like my present scattered state of mind.
- This one uses the baby wipe technique to create a multicoloured ink pad using baby wipes and reinkers. Now, I will let you in on a little secret. I didn't have any baby wipes left, so I used coffee filters instead, but it worked pretty well. I moistened the filters (about 4 of them, folded together) with water, then added drops of Pumpkin Pie, Hello Honey and Tangerine Tango reinkers in different areas of the filters. If you were using baby wipes you could eliminate the water, as the wipes are already moist.
- Then I inked up the Seasonally Scattered Thanks image on the baby wipes (or coffee filters) and stamped the image right on the Whisper White paper. I tried it two or three times to adjust the amount of water needed. When you have too much, you definitely get a more watery, blurred image. If you like a watercolour look that might be great for you, but I wanted a cleared image and so used less water.
- The Filigree Frame embossing folder gives the elegant texture on the back panel. The Very Vanilla piece of cardstock measures 5 1/4" x 4" and that just fits the Filigree Frame.
- I used the little flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to create the three little blossoms from scraps of Hello Honey, Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango cardstock.
