Hey y'all, it's me again! We made it through the first night with the new pup fairly well...a little bit of barking from Bailey, but I expected that. He seems to be a little more at home, so hopefully he'll get adjusted quickly.
I have another card to share with you that I made yesterday. I played along with Amber's Viva la Verve challenge from last week, which was a sketch with a twist of Distressing. Hmmm...right up my alley! I used the colors from this week's color challenge as well, and here's what I came up with. Ok, so after checking this week's color challenge, I was apparently supposed to use Night of Navy instead of Not Quite Navy. Sigh. Oh well, it wouldn't be a true challenge without me cheating. *snicker*
Kindred Spirits in Saffron ink to create a background on the Saffron panel, and then sponged it with Saffron, Cocoa, & Chocolate Chip ink, working my way out with each color. The Navy panel was sponged with Cocoa and Chocolate Chip also. I distressed both panels with my scissors (too lazy to dig for my distressor tool), and stitched them to the Kraft base.
For my main image panel, I thought white was a little too stark, so I chose some watercolor paper (love using it for the texture), and stamped the Psalm 121:1-2 Plain Jane in Brilliance Graphite Black. Then I cut and embossed the image using my Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities and then sponged around the edges with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink. I matted the main image on Chocolate Chip cardstock, distressed the edges and popped it up on dimensionals over the satin May Arts ribbon.
Well, y'all, I better sign off for now. Don't forget to check out the latest Viva la Verve challenge...it looks like a fun one! I hope you have a wonderful Friday!
