Well, I am 41 days in to my #50cardsin50days goal, and I’m proud to say that I haven’t missed a day yet! Here’s a recap of days 19 – 36.
Here is my favourite card from the bunch… kitties!
I also started playing along with #thedailymarker30day2 at the beginning of June. Kathy from The Daily Marker has put forth the challenge to colour something every day for the month of June, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. I have to say that the participants on Instagram are such a supportive and lovely group of people. Warms the heart.
Here’s some coloring I did with Clearly Besotted Orchids using Distress Inks and a waterbrush. The blue outline is Tombow markers blended out and the green outline is Distress Ink. You can’t see it but there’s a lovely coating of sparkly clear Wink of Stella brush pen over each orchid stem.
In other news, I started a Facebook page for my cards: http://facebook.com/driventoink. Since I’m participating in more craft fairs and starting an Etsy shop, I decided to go all the way. I’ve been selling cards to family and friends for years so why not take it to the next level. There will actually be a first-ever Etsy Handmade Market in St. John’s coming up on Saturday, September 26th at Anna Templeton Centre – more on that later!
This month I’ll be participating in the Fresh Fish Fair at Quidi Vidi Plantation on Saturday, June 20th! I have started a line of greeting cards that quote lyrics by local musicians and I’ve received a great response from every songwriter I’ve approached so far. Amazing. I’m excited to combine two of my biggest passions – local music & stationery! The OTHER exciting thing is that two shops downtown have agreed to carry these cards! Here’s a peek…

That’s all my news for this week – it’s a beautiful day out there, time to go enjoy it 🙂
I have a question on your orchid card which is absolutely stunning. Is the stamp embossed in white on watercolor paper?
Hi Barbara! I stamped and embossed with white on a heavy Italian cardstock that is *very* similar to the Canson watercolor paper. I’m sorry I didn’t see this message sooner – thank you for commenting!
