Today I wanted to join a challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, HSS Theme Challenge #113, all about Mom. Mother's day is coming up and I want to be prepared! This card will be for my MIL so don't tell...
To add the challenge I used a new to me color combo. A customer recently emailed me that she was in a bind- she was making invitations and ran out of So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Perfect Plum. She had placed an order but didn't think it would arrive on time. Could I help her out? I did, and Sarah, I'd love to see what you came up with using this color combination. I thought I should try it out! Here is what I came up with:
As an aside, I used the color spritzer tool with my Perfect Plum marker, and I think this marker, of the old style, dates back to when I first purchased my Stampin' Write markers back in 1998! These are some great markers!
I wanted to go for a shabby chic look, which I achieved with lots of layering and distressing. I have found a great way to efficiently use my distressing tool. Line up your card stock along the edge of your table letting it hang over the edge 1/4 to 1/2". Hold card firmly and run the distressing tool over the edge very quickly without bending your card stock! Go ahead and try it- it really works!
I used Field Flowers, Creative Elements, and Family reunion for my stampsets.
