I did not eat a bug. Or a lizard. But she obviously did.
Sunday came and she was suddenly very sick. Even her little cheeks were swollen. She didn't eat at all and just sat in my studio all day looking sort of glazed.
Then, whatever toxic creature she ate lost its hold on her late last night and she became herself again. I wonder if she remembers what it was so that she won't do it again. In all probability she will just eat another one and scare me to death soon. *sigh*
While she was languishing, I decided to work on a card - it was a crazy weekend so I didn't get much crafty time, but I didn't want to get too far behind on Hope You Can Cling To, so I thought I'd get cracking for Jessica's challenge to use a pink ribbon on a card.
I had seen some stunning paper tole samples on Splitcoast lately, and I wanted to try it for myself. Paper tole is like paper piecing, except with dimension.
I popped the clouds up with a single dimensional, then the balloon and the bunny with two layers of dimensionals for depth.
You'd think Blogger wouldn't tell me DIMENSIONALS is spelled wrong after the million times I've typed that word on this blog, right? But I digress.
Then on top of the bunny, the bow and his nose are popped up one more level with dimensionals.
The circle is Whisper White, and I rubbed it with Going Grey and cut it with my circle die.
Stamps: Oh, Chute from The Cat's Pajamas Ink: Black, Going Grey Paper: Going Grey, Whisper White, Lost & Found Accessories: Cloud dies, ShinHan Touch Twin markers (RP138, R8, P146), SU Sizzix Clear Circle die, scissors, dimensionals, sponge
Now you can't really see on the big pic, but the bunny and the clouds are all sparkly with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch!!
