This and That...

I love long weekends. Unfortunately I hurt my neck again so I stayed away from my crafting table most of the weekend. But I had this little Flutter Anya card I made before the sore neck week that I never got around to posting.

I love the PTI's Tin Types Background set. It makes simple and pretty backgrounds. So I stamped my fav in the set a few times in fresh snow ink on some yummy hawaiian shores paper. But I didnt really have a card in mind, I just wanted to make backgrounds. I must've been in a mood for practicing b/c I wanted to try my hand at streaky hair. I've seen it crop up on a few blogs lately and I just love the texture peeps are able to do with copics in hair coloring.

I stamped Flutter Anya b/c she had the biggest blank space of hair (which I deemed best to practice with). I obviously still need to practice but I was definitely pleased it wasnt a total disaster. I colored the rest of her up and gave into the desire to coat all of her wings in some stickles. She's super sparkly.

I paired her up with the hawaiian shores sheet I had. I hadn't intended to keep it so simple but I had this idea in my head where she'd be floating away a la flourishes. So I brought out my Inkado flourish set and stamped that. Then I went over the dots with some glossy accents to give it some dimension.

And for the "that" of my post. I've recently added food blogs on my list of blog trolling and found this awesome recipe for roasted tofu. Originally it was paired w/ noodles, but I had some baby bok choy I decided to roast up. Topped the tofu over it and wow...definitely a keeper.
