Hey peeps! I am currently procrastinating about cleaning house :D But I really do need to get in the basement and clean some stuff out. It's a little crazy in there right now, that always happens when I've been creating a lot. Creativity breeds chaos in my craft cave.
But it also produced this:
I did that thing where you take an acrylic block and scribble on it with marker, spray it with a bit of water and then smoosh it on watercolor paper. The Calypso Coral ended up being much lighter than the Mossy Meadow ink, so I got out an Aquapainter and painted on some more coral to even it up a bit. Then I dried it with my embossing gun and then embossed the Lighthearted Leaves giant leaf on top in gold. My colors today are thanks to the Color Throwdown:
Preeeeeettttttyyyyy. I used gold, Calypso Coral, and Mossy Meadow and somehow managed to only use those colors and nothing else :)
I also used the latest sketch from Fab Friday:
Instead of the stitching, I used a gold doily. And my main image ended up being so large that I left off the pearls...and I didn't do that one extra background layer. But I think I still kept the spirit of the sketch?
This also fits with the current Paper Players challenge:
I was looking for an excuse to use that gorgeous "Thankful" stamp from Six Sayings, don't you love it?
The embossing on the sentiment shows up a little better in this pic, though the leaf looks a little washed out. It's one of those cards that I think looks a little better in person.
Anyway, I really do need to clean that basement, so cheers, peeps!
