Mad About You

Happy Sunday! I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. I surprised the family with a new Wasgij (reverse perspective puzzle). I typically buy the Christmas ones and we start them Christmas eve but decided to get one now too! It's so nice to have puzzles out as we are all drawn to them at different times. I love it best when all five of us are working on it at the same time.

I did find time to craft and am playing along in the latest Your Next Stamp sketch challenge (#37). I created my card for my husband (a math and PE teacher) using YNS's Perfect Chemistry stamp set. I created my own background papers by creating a brick wall stencil with my Silhouette and using it to ink up some watercolour papers with distress inks. The math equation was an image that I found online, printed and inked with the same distress inks. Each of the mats was cut using stitched rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamp.


Everything is adhered to gray cardstock. I finished things off with some sequins (retired from My Craft Spot).
