Queen of Procrastination

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Good morning!

Are you a procrastinator? Without a doubt, I am the queen of procrastination! I put things off until I can no longer do so. I avoid things that are a chore to do until it's absolutely necessary to do them. I'd rather do something I want to do than something I have to do. I don't like this trait, but I live with it. *grin*

Today's card is a tribute to me and all the procrastinators out there!

This is Melville. It isn't a very feminine name for a queen, but hey; who am I to judge?! Melville is from my favorite set from Starving Artistamps/Doodle Factory, Creatures. I really wish they would come out with a Creatures II and more sentiments to match because I just love how silly and kooky they are!

DoodleFactory and Sassafras Lass paper are a match made in heaven. Both are really bold and graphic. I used my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush to color in Melville (and Distress Inks for the background) and added some Star Dust Stickles to her crown for some sparkle. I find that the red reinkers tend to take the longest to dry, so I usually color the background first before applying the reds. This is so it (the red ink) doesn't bleed into the other areas while I'm coloring them. The matching sentiment is quite cumbersome, so I cut the sentiment in two and stamped the punch line on the inside. Love those quirky sentiments!

Speaking of procrastinating; I have been avoiding cleaning the inside of my car all summer and this weekend I have to clean it. Bleh. Have a good one!

What a funny and adorable card! It looks fantastic -- I don't think I ever would have thought to use that kind of paper but it looks perfect!
Unfortunately, I feel like if I don't work first, I can't "play". It's why I get so little "playing" done. I need to rethink my priorities. :)

That is really funny that you mention a Creatures II set because it has been on my To Do list for ages. In fact, it would have been part of the next release if I didn't have that very same procrastination disease.

I love your card! Those waves in the background are awesome.
