I have been fighting a nasty cold for well over a week, and have been burning my candle at both ends as usual. I was so exhausted after I got the kids to bed last night, I went to bed, too. I was in bed before 9:00. That never happens. Ever.
I was hoping to get a good 8-10 hours of sleep. My body could definitely use it. So I was a little peeved when I woke up at 2:00am, ready to go for the day. After all, I had gotten my usual 5 hours of sleep. Who needs more than that? Apparently not me.
As I tried to go back to sleep, I heard a faint cry coming from my craft room. I tried to ignore it, but it wouldn't stop. It was saying something about an unfinished project waiting for me. Tossing and turning wouldn't get my card finished, so I got up and came to my cave.
Here is what I finished.
I used the Twinkling H2Os technique that Susan (LateBlossom) posted on her blog. If you haven't tried this yet, I highly encourage you to try it. It is so easy, and you can use it for so many things. I used cold press watercolor paper, so there was a lot of texture before I ran it through the Cuttlebug.
Stamps - Teeny tiny wishes (this has quickly become my go-to sentiment set)
Paper - GKD PL white, cold press watercolor paper
Ink - Memento black
Accessories - Twinkling H2Os, paintbrush, butterfly embosslits die, sanding block, half pearls, dimensionals, ribbon, SAMJ
I hope you enjoyed Susan's Twinkling H2Os technique. I know I will be using it for many things.
