Backtrack. DS takes a final exam in German today. Four hours long. DD has a Math test and let's just say she and Math don't get along well. And there's this saying in German that loosely translates to "the shoemaker's kids have the worst shoes in town". I'm whipping out cards all the time, but rarely for my own kids. That's about to change.
Since I had two cards to cover and Alicia T.'s bitty bag had been playing in the back of my mind, this is what I did.
Printed the "yes you can" (nod to a certain presidential campaign) then placed the "you" stickers on one card and misted with blue Dylusions and the "can do it" stickers on the other card and sprayed with pink Dylusions. Took the letters off the cards and adhered them to the "other" card - get it?
TIP: If you want the letters to look clean after they've been misted... they probably won't. Maybe they would if you wiped them quickly with a baby wipe. But I didn't. So I now have some yellow-misted-pink stickers back in my stash replacing the clean ones I had to pull out to use on the blue card!
I'm hooking up at CASE Study - #141. I had Maile's hearts in mind when choosing the colors to use for the two cards and I just love the words-on-top-of-gobs-of-color idea.
And I saw this cool photo at Inspired By #45 and that stark "E" at the top inspired me to use strong black letters in the pink mist with the design flowing from upper left to lower right. Cool photo Laurel.
