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.
