My card today was designed by my good friend and upline, Buffy Cooper. She makes some awesome creations. This one was for a techniques class and the objective was to use our acrylic blocks to transfer ink to paper. We applied color to a block with a marker, spritzed with water and then stamped on paper. I did mine just a little different in that I streaked more and left some white areas, but the end result was pretty much the same. I have done some similar cards by dropping ink on a silicone craft sheet and "smooshing" it around. This technique is a bit more controlled, and I like it a lot (thanks a bunch, Buffy).
Well I hope everyone survived Hurricane Sandy without too much damage, and a minimum of frustration. We were spared. I think the mountain we live on protected us from some of the wind. We had some, but not enough to take down any trees, and there was little or no damage in our neighborhood. We live in the woods, and we were pleasantly surprised that all the leaves came down but none of the trees, and the power stayed on. So now I have to empty my bathtub full of water, empty all the bottles of water, use up the 3 pitchers of coffee we prepared (to heat over a Bunsen Burner) and put away all the candles and flashlights -- but no complaints, we were spared.
This is what happens when it really floods. This was taken Tuesday morning from our side of the river. See the cars on the other side..............
I hope you liked my card today, and hope you enjoyed my little trip to our wonderful river.
Until next time.........................
