Roses From My Love and An Award
Betty aka gbedwright on Splitcoaststampers asked me to sample with her today for the
Tuesday Color Challenge. I was thrilled to do it but had many problems along the way. This is one of those cards I would love to do over. Then, before I could get the photo I wanted, my camera died. I charged with no luck so I guess I need a new battery. Ugh! Have you ever had a day when nothing seemed to go right...well, I was smack in the middle of one. LOL
The colors for the challenge were: Rose Red, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, ivory or white, and for a dessert option, you could choose another color. I chose Old Olive. I had to substitute Daffodil Delight for So Saffron and inked my gray cardstock from Hobby Lobby with Versa Mark to darken a bit.
Stamp: Miss Elizabeth (no name) Found at the Dollar Tree-I think it looks like watercolor. I did Tombow marker to stamp for the color. I always watercolor with a brush and couldn't do it on my cardstock. Some of the ink needed moving around so I barely wet my brush and filled in just a tad.
Accessories: Spellbinders oval nestabilitie and Lattice Shapeabilities Pendants, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Textile), Martha Stewart French Scroll border punch, Lace trim from Jo-Ann's.
I received this lovely award from Emily Keaton.
Thanks so much Emily! I adore having it from a good stamper friend.
I am happy to pass it on to seven more stampers. Some of these may not know me really well, others do. But, I so enjoy visiting their blogs. Some have wonderful tutorials, great organizational ideas, some are friends with wonderful galleries and some just come and leave wonderful comments on my blog. Each one has inspired me in my card creations.
