Pi Day!

It’s Pi Day!  My husband was really excited . . . he loves it when I make him pies. He convinced me that Sunday was pie day and he got his wish.  He special favorite is Huckleberry pie, but alas there are no Huckleberries this time of year and I didn’t have any in the freezer.  So, he had to settle for a streusel topped apple pie, his second favorite.  I know this pie wouldn’t win any beauty baking contests, but it is really delicious and made from apples that grew in our front yard last summer.  Yeah for freezing apples to bake with! 

In actuality I told him because I wanted to make a card that celebrated Pi day for Imagine Artist in Residence.  Being a science (and sometimes) math geek, it just made sense! 

To create the resist Pi symbol I found and image on the internet and printed it.  The image was traced with Versa Marker using a light box.  Clear embossing powder was added and the process was repeated until the image was covered.  Memento in Dandelion, Lilac Posies and Teal Zeal were sponged onto the card using an Ink Blusher.  The sentiments “Sweet” and as are from a very old set of sentiments by Dream Ink.  The “as” is from another word with the rest of the word masked while the stamp was inked.  The numbers are from a Hero Arts set from 1991, Dot Number set.  The sentiment and numbers are stamped in StazOn Jet Black so they would stamp over the embossed areas.
