Dear Soul

I made three of these a couple months ago and found that I didn't want to sell them, and then I didn't want to use them!  So I finally was like, "Ummm, you can make more..." What a concept!:

Haha, I just glanced at the post from November (link above) and it even says I wanted to make about 100,000 of them!  So now I've made 4.  99,996 left to go!

  • Tim Holtz Scribbles stamp inked with Distress embossing ink then embossed with Recollections EP in black on Strathmore watercolor paper
  • Color Bursts in Indigo, Merlot, and Violet.  I've started keeping sticky-notes with the inks I use on the backs of panels I make.  I used to think I could always identify the colors used, but there are so many variables depending on color combinations and amounts and amounts of water that I wasn't always able to determine what I'd used!  For example, on this one, I thought I'd used Ultramarine Blue, but when I checked my notes, I realized that the Indigo just appears really blue on this card based on the amount of water and probably in contrast with the Merlot!  Only Lauren Beregold will appreciate this rant, but I had to get it out...
  • Popped the entire panels up with 3M dimensional adhesive
  • Tim's Small Talk stickers added as the sentiment
This card will be good as a "thank you"or a "thinking of you," I believe.

I'd like to share this with two of my fave challenges:
