Birthday Doilies and a Fun Quiz!

I found the most fun quiz.  Ok – it was probably fun, because I got a pretty decent score.  It’s a “hue test,” and you line up colors from lightest to darkest – or the other way around.  I have to admit, after awhile, the colors start to look the same.  My “issues” were right in the center between blues and greens.

If you want to give it a shot, here’s the link.   (Thanks, Martha!!)

Here’s a birthday card I made for a friend.  The stupid ink smeared (you can see it really well in the close up!), so it looks more like “bappy birthday.”  I’ll do that layer over, I guess, but later.  I’ve got some press releases to send out for Mike and then rehearsal tonight.  Or I may just pretend I have a cold and wish her a “bappy birthday!”

This is very straightforward, so I won’t bore you with all the details.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed on vellum, the colored on the back (“Stained Glass” technique).  I backed it with Very Vanilla so the colors would really pop.  The doilies are stamped in versamark, then clear embossed.  I sponged ink over them to bring out the design.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week.
