Mornin' y'all! How's your day going? I've only got a little bit of time before I have to get ready to go to my kickboxing class. Hubs likes to pretend that he's nervous that I go to kickboxing classes. And then I laugh at him which is what he was trying to get me to do anyway.
So...how about a card!
This card was a bit of a bugger to make. I started out with the colorwash background--I scribbled on my largest acrylic block with a Mossy Meadow marker and spritzed it with water, then stamped it on Shimmery White cardstock. Well, I spritzed too much, it was practically a puddle so I ran it upstairs (trying not to drip green water on the carpet) and sprinkled some salt on it. Parts of it turned kinda brown but it was neat-looking so I abandoned my first plan for this card (flowers) and decided to use By the Tide since it's retiring. So then I stamped my main image panel and after the background was dry, I brushed off the salt and went to stamp the coral...and I stamped it in the WRONG COLOR. I know, I know, it's my card, no one says what color it has to be, but I'd already done the shell and I wanted ORANGE coral, not PINK. So I had to toss that one and make another one, and this time I just didn't want to run up the stairs again to get the salt because I didn't bring it down with me the first time. But in the end I got this card made.
I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
And this week's Color Throwdown:
Now you see why I had to have orange on there :p I used Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, and Mossy Meadow for my colors.
Okay kids, it's off to kickboxing I go. Cheers!
