One More Twinkling Card

Note: For those who read Simplicity in your email, you may need to scroll down for yesterday's post. I had problems earlier in the week with scheduling (NOT my fault!) but Saturday's was scheduled to post at the wrong time (entirely my fault). My apologies for being a dork.

Our town trick-or-treated last night. I wore a costume to a costume party. There is, however, no photographic evidence. I like it that way.

Halloween and the last week have kicked my butt. I'm whipped. Rode hard and put up wet. Drained to the last drop.

May I please have some cheese to go with that whine? Or perhaps just another fun-size Almond Joy?

Anyway, here's another (and the last for a while...I think) of the Twinkling H2O cards that came out of my last frenzy of play.


I love this bird-in-a-tree stamp from Penny Black. It's a tree. What's not to love? NOTHING. The sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages. I highlighted the berries or whatever you want to call them with a Sakura Stardust pen. Hopefully you can see that on the picture. It's just a little extra shimmer.

Can you have too much shimmer?

That was a rhetorical question.

Supplies
stamps: Penny Black, PTI
ink: Palette dark chocolate
paper: PTI aqua (whatever it's called), SU chocolate chip, Arches hot-press watercolor paper
accessories: Twinkling H2Os, Stardust pen

  4. I love the twinkling cards! Thank you so much for answering my question about finding the paints. I've had no luck at any stores, so I guess I'll have to go online. I HATE paying shipping costs!!! Especially for a new product I don't know if I'm going to love. Oh well, Happy Halloween! Thanks again.

  5. I love this beautiful card!! Wonderful color, wonderful images.

    I want to share with you that I so enjoy coming to your site and seeing not only beautiful cards but a nice clean slate on which to see them and to read your wittiness. Some blogs are so crowded with stuff, that's big and bold or flashing, all clamoring for attention that you don't know where to look. I know exactly where to look on your blog. Thank you!

  8. Another perfect card!

    As I read Cindy H's comment above, I realized that that is another reason I love your blog - the plain white background with a clear black font, no cluttered patterns down the sides, and no music that suddenly blares out of my computer when I open your blog. I'd never consciously thought about it till I read Cindy H's comment. Of course it fits in with Simplicity, but nonetheless, thank you for setting it up that way.
