The falling snow has turned to sleet and rain here in NJ. I have been working on my cards today for my swap with the gals in Maine. Our theme for this project was "things that have wings but don't breathe." I thought that was a really great idea. Things such as airplanes, helicopters, hot air balloons, zeplins---all of these would fit the bill for the assigned theme. The "wings" part of the project goes right along with my Brave Girls Art Club Class called "Wings 2" where we are making birds and butterflies. I was very eager to tackle this assignment!
I am not sure if I would doodle on the cards again. It was fun for an experiment, but the pigment ink does not always flow out of the pen evenly which leaves some empty spots. Once I started to try to color in these spots, the doodles became uneven. Then, there was the process of making the lines appear more even, with more or less success. Generally less. When my stamping friend Mary makes a mistake, she would call it an "Amish" card. The Amish quilters believe that only God is perfect so therefore, they will put a mistake in every quilt they make. Thank God for the Amish! I hope you will enjoy my "Amish" card while you think of some wonderful friend who always cheers you up!
