Card Recognition

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Thanks



Happy Wednesday!  Do any of you have the problem of finding inspiration at the absolute worst time? I made part of this card at 5:50am while waiting for my ride to the gym and then the light bulb to finish the card happened in the 20 minutes before I was suppose to walk out the door for work.  So I left house in a flury with my breakfast in hand and left the crafting mess in the way of my frenzied activity. I've used the Skipping Stones sketch and the B&W with a pop of color for the A Passion for Papertrey Challenge.  

Materials: Skipping Stones Grunge sentiment, PTI Rosie Posie, Life Style Celebration letterpress, PTI Tag It Sale die , Verafine black ink, Letterpress black ink, Tim Holtz Distress Ink festive berries, Stampendous clear embossing powder, water color paper, black card stock, vellum, May Arts ribbon, My Mind's Eye Rhinestones

LOL - I love your creative story, it seems like life does have to happen that way! :0) This card is incredibly unusual, I love the translucency of the vellum - and the play between the background image and the brighter floral over the top - very, very clever and so eyecatching!!
