COC2 #2, SSSS, ATT April Challenges
Well,we areTim's April tag, so having to combine a few here. I have had a terrible time with a sty in my eye for over a week and the last three days have been unbearable, so I finally left work yesterday and went to the doctor, only to be sent to an eye doctor, who was able to finally slice the top open with a scalpel so that it could drain. Terribly infected and way down between the gland and the cartilage, so really hard to lance it. It is finally getting the pressure released today so I am home after getting someone to take 6 hours of my shift for me. It is so swollen and nasty and I have pulled out nearly all of my eyelashes trying to find the one causing all the pain and inflammation. I look just hideous!!! On vacation next week, thank goodness! Anyway, for Linda's COC2 challenge, turn your Tim book volume 2 to page 58 for the technique. I had not done the faux patina before, so that is also qualifying my to enter it to the ATT challenge, and on Simon Says Stamp and Show, the challenge for this week, is to show us your word. Well, the word I chose was "Explore". I so enjoy all things nature and outdoors, so I went with this. I used Snowcap white, stream, pool, and lettuce for my AI's. And stamped it with black archival and the background stamp was French Ultramarine Archival. Oooh, those inks are so yummy. Distress stained the seam binding to match my color scheme and voila!
