It’s time for another blog hop – and this time, it’s not what it appears to be. That’s right – it’s an “April Fool!” hop. Each of us will have one project that looks like one thing but it’s really something else.
You may have arrived from the fabulous Christine’s blog. Christine is a marvelous artist, and I love her work. If you’re starting with me, though, that’s fine, too. Just keep hopping until you get back! You can use the links in the post, or the buttons at the end of the blog.
Here’s my “April Fool” project.
It looks like an etch-a-sketch, right? I have seen some of these on various blogs, and I thought they were so cute. But this isn’t really an etch-a-sketch card. It’s magic! Because when you pull the tab –
– the image is magically colored. Cool, right? It’s all done with smoke and mirrors. Or, really, vellum, card stock, and window sheets. (Disclaimer: The images aren’t off set and blurry in person. But getting the window sheet to stay put for the photo proved impossible.) I used Shimmery White card stock, classic ink and an aqua painter to color the From the Herd image.
For this hop, I either have two or four projects – depending on how you count them. My second project is really three. Spring is in full bloom here in the Shenandoah Valley. You can tell by the sneezing and sniffing you hear from almost everyone! But it’s also gorgeous with all the flowering and blossoming fruit trees.
So that’s it for me. Your next stop is the amazing Gail! You’re in for another surprise, and I’m sure it will be a treat.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
