As You See It

The Best Thing About Moms...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank.  The best thing about mothers is love! 

#274 5.6.2022

Moms lead us, teach us, cry with us and celebrate with us.  I miss my mom terribly and she did all of these and more.  She did it because she loved me.  She held my hand when I was young and I held hers when she got older.  Where you go, I go.  Love you and miss you mom!

Feeling Blue For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use balmy blue, pacific point and night of navy.

Butterfly Sketches For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a sketch challenge.

Staying Dry For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to stay dry. 

#271 3.25.2022

When I saw the challenge, I ordered this sweet house mouse stamp to use.  I also knew I was going to spend a lot of my time coloring.  So I did a bunch of dry runs by stamping and timing myself coloring.  I got it down to just over seven minutes for the image.  I did that by lining up the markers in order of use and keeping the caps off.  (I hope I didn't break the rules by doing that!)

I always keep a ton of white cardstock prepped and ready for card bases.  So I grabbed one of those and a stitched circle die cut that I have had in my scrap white paper for some time.

I had a scrap of pattern paper that I used to draw my colors from and just had to adhere and cut off the extra.  I looped some twine and added the image.  I was just pressing down on the sentiment when the bell rang so I considered that a win.  I only timed myself with the coloring so the rest was going to be up to chance and I got lucky enough to get the sentiment on, as I had saved that for last.

This was a fun challenge and really made me think up hacks to get a nice card done in the allotted time.

#266 1.14.2022

I started by die cutting two triangles, one in white and one in pattern paper.  I cut the base down to make a 4 X 4 card to create a cozier looking card.

I stamped the jar, fish, ribbon and sentiment and then die cut and adhered together.  I used a bit of pool party for the water in the jar.  I popped the jar and sentiment up and added some clear dots to look like bubbles.  I quite like how it all came together.
