After last weeks totally clear, sterile desk treatment in a fruitless attempt to get my muse back, she is still hiding away....yeah, the week I need to get Mom's day's cards out-oh and a girlfriends Birthday---
After 2 Hours....this is what I have....and it needs....something! Suggestions?? Ideas?? Advice to take a drink and start over?? Neither my Mom or Mom-in Law are much in "grunge", but I just couldn't not run the distresser around the edge, then sponge it up with DI Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord. But the image is too big for a layer; I don't have purple fibers..I could dye some lace, but I'm not sure that would do the trick; maybe some pearls? UGH!
The stamp is a PSX Botanical--I love them, have quite a few, but haven't used them in years, colored with Prismacolor pencils. The Mother's day verse (also PSX) was my first use of my new Spellbinders die-run through my Big Shot. I don't have the solo thin die adapter, impression pad or silicone rubber matt Tim Holtz suggests on his video, but some folded scrap paper for the embossing part seemed to work pretty well.
So, PLEASE! Some suggestions to "Finish" this...or some suggestions to get my Muse back...anything! LOL! And then you can jump over to Julia's Stamping Ground and see everyone else's busy desks...and get some craft on..Have a good week everyone.
