I Built... a Quilt.

Okay - I have to admit - this was fun. I stamped on different pattened papers (listed below), then lightly added some copic highlights for some depth and stitched all around. I think I'm beginning to "get" the thrill real quilters feel when they create a design... like, when the squares are put together and create additonal designs within the design. I've said design too much, haven't I? Okay... moving on.

If you haven't seen the quilt cards from the other Whipper Snapper Featured Designers, then you should check out their blogs and/or galleries:

Just a quick note about one of the really cool papers I used in this... card. It's called jillibean soup "white macaroni"... (the brown paper)... well, I discovered that when you sponge ink (in my case, choc chip over the corners), the white design pops out! It's so cool!!

Well that's it for me today. I'm going to take advantage of this nice quiet day and get some things done around this place... a little cleaning... organizing, that sort of thing. Wait a minute... it's New Year's Day - who am I kidding?? Plan B: off to the craft room.... eeeehhaaaa!!!

Have a wonderful day everyone...

and best wishes for a really super 2010!!
