Where there is LOVE

This afternoon, while I was "sublicating" (making cards to submit for publication - yes, I made that up) another happy accident occurred and I whipped up this quick card by repeating the accident. Do you remember what happened the last time I had a creative accident? :) That's right, I made this card, then this one and my first ever video tutorial! Today's card features a sentiment from Verve's Text Objects, a set I bought months ago but hadn't inked up yet. It was time to give it some love. Oh, and of course there's the awesome charcoal baker's twine from The Twinery!!

Enjoy the rest of your day and be sure to stop by tomorrow for an incredibly gnomey Pink Cat Studio digi release! Click HERE or on the blinkie for contest details. Trust me, you will want these digis!!

Hi Emily! I think you need to have more of these "little accidents"! Not to say that I don't like the rest of your work, I adore it, but heck, I love the "messy" cards! I was just telling a friend about you yesterday and am about to send your blog link to her! Awesome card!!!

Let's just say that some people have happier accidents than others! It's gorgeous Emily - like coming to the surface of a deep, deep lake after a dive...

"Sublicating" is definitely my new favorite word. And that card is genius! I already love your accidental techniques -- now there's a new one in town! Very cool.

Julie Hoffman said...

Oh Emily I love this!!! Absolutely gorgeous! Love your new word too! I need to work on having more accidents in the craft room!

Smita said...

Oh wow! I'd love to know what 'little accident' made you create this fun background :) Love how you spotlighted the sentiment (by our very own Father of the nation :) )

How come you get to have accidents that look so awesome? :D This is a great card. I don't even know how you would decide on those particular colours, but they work so well together!

Karin said...

Ack! I've been so busy and disorganized I totally missed this card earlier...Only you can create something so cool from a screw up! Love the color combo too!

this might be one of my fav cards using that inking technique!! i love how the blue makes a ring around the inside but also shows up on the outside :) and def makes the sentiment take front a center! not to mention you can't go wrong with a lil twine ;)
