This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 314 - Handmade Tickets:
Today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 108 - The Great Outdoors. Well when I think of outdoors I remember the beautiful flowers my aunt and uncle had in their yard. They are both gone now and I pass the house they lived in for 40yrs often with a great sadness as it is grown over with weeds and junk so I turn my thoughts back onto my memories of how gorgeous the hydrangea bushes were. That is why I love this stamp set so much.
I had to work Sunday but did have time to CASE Corrie but I really wanted to do her gallery as much justice as possible so I did another of Sunday's FEATURED STAMPER # 212 - Corrie Foster by CASEing her CELEBRATION card this time. I changed the layout, colors and ribbon placement.
I inked my image with my stampin up markers of rose red and always artichoke, then huffed and stamped. I sponged some going gray to match the dp and tone down the white.
My color combo is from last Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 311 - Always Perfect Roses. I stamped the sentiment in perfect plum then sponged some going gray. I used my ticket corner punch on the focal image and sentiment.
Now off to work again. I will be doing 6 days this week since I got called in Sunday so by Friday my behind WILL be dragging.
