Hey y'all. Happy Tuesday! I hope you are safe, and warm, and dry and not suffering any ill effects from Sandy. I was laid up, in bed, most of yesterday with a nasty migraine courtesy of that nasty FrankenSandy. Sorry I didn't get to post. I did get a few cards made today, late though it may be and hope you like what I have for you.
Tomorrow is my last day at my current job. I've been there a little more than a year and needed a card for a friend there. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to design so I decided to look for a challenge to help me out. This week's challenge over at Nacho Average Challenge is a color challenge. Color challenges are very difficult for me so I often try to combine them with a sketch challenge. I combined the color challenge over at NAC with the sketch challenge at I Spy to come up with today's card. Here's what I came up with-
|Card featuring Waterfall Stamp Set and |
Autumn Accents Bigz Die
Here's a look at the inside-
I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede and then stamped my leaf image twice. My acorn was cut out with the Bigz Die and then inked with the coordinating image. In order to get the two toned stamped image I inked my stamp and stamped it off once so that the top could be a lighter color. I then re-inked the bottom portion with my Classic Ink Pad, huffed on it and then stamped it giving me the two-toned look. I then sponged around the edges and adhered it to my c/s with Tombow.
Here's a look at the card and coordinating envelope-
Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by my little corner of the world. You are very appreciated! Till Next Time-
Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.
