Random Thinking of You Card

Hey Everyone! Just a random card I made today! What do I consider a "random card"? Well, it's a card with no goals in mind, no technique to talk about, just a "whatever card". The image is actually one of those "stock" images I have that I had colored about 2 years ago and never used. Can you believe it? I have soooooooooo many of them. For most of them, I don't like how I colored them and when I see one that I feel can be "fixed" or "modified", I create a card with the image. This is was one of them. I don't even know who made this stamp. It's a pretty image though.

Before I talk about anything else. . .stop by my "Stampin Inspirations Club Site" when you have a chance. . .I've been posting tutorials on that blog to sort of "build up" that site because it's a new blog where I post all of my projects using "current" Stampin Up products. I posted a tutorial on water coloring with SU markers and pastels on watercolor paper yesterday: Click Here to check it out!

I haven't been able to establish a good rhythm for my three blog sites. . .until I do, most of my "tutorials" will be posted on the "Stampin Inspirations Club Site" for now. I think at the beginning of next year, I'm going to merge "Card Inspired" with this blog site. I wanted to keep the stamping projects separate from the non-stamping projects but it's sort of hard to manage all three blog sites.

Anyway, just a little info on this card . . .I had colored the image with pastels on "glossy cardstock" and shaded the image with markers. I added a bit of SU "Crystal Effects" to the raspberries. You can't really see it in the picture but you can see it better in the picture above.

Here is a close up of the card.
