Best. Mascara. Ever

Do you ever...

Do you ever try and do more than one thing at a time?  Ha, ha.  Of course you do.  But the brain can't multi-task.  Or so I've been told.  Apparently there was a study done and the brain can not multi-task.  It can switch from one task to another pretty quickly, but it can't do two things at once.  Hmm.  I guess it's like when I am in the shower thinking about my to-do's and writing my blog post in my head, and then I wonder if I've shampooed or just thought about it.  Pretty sure I can't do two things at once, even though I am usually trying to do ten things at once.  Probably why I feel like I am not getting anything done properly!

So I think I managed to salvage the Halloween card I thought was a fail.  I wasn't liking the background I did, and then I added some stamping and some washi tape and I felt like it was going nowhere fast.  So I put it aside.  But then I started thinking (probably while in the shower - ha!) and thought if I could just add a spider or something to the card, it might be cute.  So I called my friends at The Stamp Asylum and they had just the right die cut for me!  I'd say don't tell my husband I ran right over there and purchased (another) Tim Holtz die, but since I know he follows this blog, I am doomed on that front.

Just thought I would share how the card turned out.  Then I guess I need to go finish getting dressed.  Did I actually use shampoo this morning?  I'm really not sure.


So the photo is not the best, but you get the idea.  I used glitter on the 31 following Jennifer McGuire's tips and tricks (www.JenniferMcGuireInk.com) and even "sealed" the glitter in using clear embossing powder.  It was very easy and worked really well.  I then inked up the spider (it's cut from grunge paper) and then embossed it as well.  I thought I was going to need multiple layers, but I thought it looked pretty glossy after just one coat.  I popped the images up with pop dots and then added a bit of string like a web.  I'm pleased with it now.  (It says Happy Halloween inside).

Hope you can get some crafting in... while juggling several other things at once too?
