Hello everyone! I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday.
I'm continuing with my theme of cards to send while we're staying close to home. Many of us have recently made the transition to working from home, so this stapler set "Keeping it Together" seemed like a great set to use! I'll send this to a coworker who I miss from my job.
Can you guess what household item I used to make my background?
I used Dylusions and Color Box Spritzers ink sprays to make my background. While I think ink sprays are a lot of fun, they often overpower the small canvas of an A2 card or at least I haven't figured out how to get less output. So, I wanted to contain the spray to a smaller spot. What was the mystery item? No guesses? Alright, I'll let you in on the trick. I put an empty toilet paper cardboard roll on the cardstock and sprayed my ink down into the tube. The best part was that I don't have to clean off a stencil; I can just pop it into the recycling. If Americans' recent hoarding of TP is any indication, you all should have a few at your house too! You might notice that the orange circle in the middle has a bit of a blue border. I like the effect, but if you want to avoid it, either start with the lightest colors or have a tube per color.
Remember to leave a comment on this post, and on every post this week. Unity Stamp Company graciously provides a grab bag of 25 stamps to two random commenters this week and every GIU week! I'll have a prize that I'll personally send out to someone who comments and answers the question at the bottom of the post.
Have you been working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak? My last normal day at work as a math coach and teacher was March 13th. We are closed for at least four more weeks but online instruction will happen to keep kids learning while we can't be together. I'm lucky, I guess, that my craft table can double as my teaching desk while I'm working from home!
I hope you are staying safe and well during this challenging time.
