Hi everyone. I have another card to share today. It was going to be two cards, but I messed up the second card so much – I ended up having stern words with myself and binned it! Just one of those things….and it just kept happening, but I managed to persuade myself this card was alright:
I took a piece of card and masked off the outer two long edges, leaving the centre open, and ink blended three Distress Oxides.
Once that had dried, I took the a mixture of stamps from Hero Arts ‘Safari Huge Thanks‘ and ‘Safari Wild About You‘ and stamped them as you see with Catherine Pooler Midnight ink.
I had to stamp each image a couple of times to get them crisp, but it was worth it – until I came to the sentiment. The last thing on the card, the final thing I had to do…………..and the card moved between the first and second stamping. Despite using my Misti, despite using my magnets in my Misti!!!! It really wasn’t my day……..
It gave two images of the sentiment, so I swore a little, I went downstairs, I made a coffee, I then went back upstairs and stamped again – at least four times – to make the sentiment look as though it had a shadow. It almost looks like it’s hovering there in the air – almost!
Anyhoo – I still like the card, I like the black images against the colours of Distress Oxides. I actually Googled what ‘Hakuna Matata‘ means – and it is ‘no problem‘ or ‘no troubles‘ – well………I have taken that to heart with this card.
So if the sentiment looks hovering and shadowed…….no problem! Hakuna Matata! 🙂 🙂

Gorgeous ink blending and I never would have known that the shadow on the sentiment wasn’t just a clever technique if you hadn’t mentioned it 😉 Thank you for playing in the A Blog Named Hero monthly challenge!
Thank you very much 🙂
Your card is absolutely beautiful. It’s “Hakuna matata” all right. And I have to say that before I read your blog entry I believed that you had offset your sentiment to create the illusion of a shadow. I love your colors and how you have let some of your images “walk out of the colored strip”. Very cute!
Thank you so much for joining us at A Blog named Hero this month and I wish you a beautiful day. make it a good one.
