This is a sketch challenge for a magazine. We start moving on July 31st, and I'm facing an August 1st submission deadline. Oh GACK!!! Packing has stalled (thankfully) until we get a quote from a mover. They can't assess and insure what they can't see! So I am stamping my fingers to the bone *snort*! I still have some seamstressing to do next week - a job I have been procrastinating on. *sigh* It's a suit jacket that needs to be taken in and it's a big nasty job. I'd rather be stamping...

None of the greens in this card match, but they all go together anyway - still going through scraps. I used stamps from Crafty Secret's Cherub set only. The heart was stamped from this set as well, but once I put the crackle medium on it, the ink bled and mottled. I love the effect, but the crackle medium also changed the colour so rather than being a perfect colour match, the red turned almost tomato red. *sigh* I may re-do the heart since it's for a magazine submission. IRL, the colour of the heart is still close enough to be acceptable, but in this photograph, WOWZA it gets to be pretty high yellow red! Yoish! This one will sit out for a little and I'll need to live with it and decide later today or tomorrow whether I should re-do that heart or not.
