I'm playing some serious catch up with Mercy's Tuesday Sketches. This was actually last week's sketch, and I still have the week before that to do also! I can't skip one... That would be a travesty! And let's not even mention the sketch for this week. Let's just say I definitely have plenty to keep me busy for a while. Thanks for another great sketch, Mercy!
I've also use Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge for this card. Dawn, I love, love, love these colors together! I still have all the papers out on my desk and am definitely going to whip up a few more cards with this combo. Soooo pretty! My roomie is also out for the evening which means lots of uninterrupted stamping time. It's just me and Pandora set to the Broadway station. :) It's definitely an addiction.
There is a technique on this card that I seldom use. Can you spot it? Yup, it's distressing/vintage-ing. I even used my tea dyes to stain the perimeter of the card and the oval to "antique" it a bit. The edges were roughed up the old fashioned way: a pair of scissors. I took the picture on my normal white background, but it looked really washed out and the rustic cream disappeared. So I added some Aqua Mist to the background, but I'm not so sure that was the right color to go with. I may have to go back and re-shoot it with a Chocolate background....
Have a wonderful rest of your evening! Thanks for stopping by!Supplies-
