I have a card to share for this week's:
Here's my card:
I've used the technique two ways. First around the edges of my card base to create a frame and second, on the bookmark (strip of Aqua Mist cs). I also used my scor-pal to create an embossed edge (a la Nichole) along the glittered edge. I think this is the first time I've inked up this set All Booked Up- honestly, I don't know why cuz I loved it from the get go. I love to read & this is the *perfect* set for reading appreciation.
It's a pretty simple card, but has lots of dimension!
The colors are so yummy & are this week's color challenge at JUGS: Aqua, Melon, & Kraft
Copic Colors Used: R01, R02, R05, BG10, BG15, E0000, C00, C1
Since we're on the topic of reading... I have a little story to share.
I was always a good reader, but I didn't always like to read. I read because I had to, not because I wanted to. One day, when I was in 3rd grade, my mom brought home a bag of books people donated to poor kids. Well, we were those poor kids. I had a reading log to fill out so I browsed through the bag & picked a Sesame Street book called "The Monster at the End of this Book" --->They had me at the title! Hee! Hee! I read it intrigued to go on to the next page, but the character in the book kept telling me NOT to turn the page and each time I turned the page something funny would happen! Finally, I got to the page before the last page---> the page where the monster was. I was nervous. I was excited. My heart was pounding in my chest with anticipation. I turned the page & roared with laughter! I immediately had to read it again, & again, & again! That little Sesame Street book awakened a love I would have for the rest of my life---> READING. After that, I read because being engaged & totally losing myself in a story was magical!
Here's what that little book looks like:
