Please welcome our newest Guest Designer,
Susie Moore, The Dies Have ItI am not a "speckler"! Probably for the same reason that I struggle with watercoloring. There's not much control and I am a serious control freak! But I wanted to add a little texture in the background of a card that's scheduled for this coming Tuesday. Just before I did the card, I browsed some blogs and saw somebody squeeze a bit of Wink of Stella glitter to the tip and then tap the pen on their finger. I tried it on my card and had remarkable success.
For this challenge, I wanted to go with speckled eggs and I knew the Wink of Stella method would work for me. I only had two pens - white and clear - so I ran to Hobby Lobby and Michaels. Bless their hearts - of all the colors available, they each had the same six colors. You think they'd coordinate better!! I really wanted pink and yellow for soft Easter colors - but I ended up with violet, blue and gold. I'd prefer a more spring-like card - but I don't hate it!!
Here's a close-up of my speckles (and one little smear on the purple egg!) I'm thinking some more Wink of Stellas are going to show up in my stash!!
I hope to see you play along!! I love browsing the amazing cards in the Curtain Call gallery - I always find inspiration in your cards.
