Good evening! I'm back tonight with my card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch. I really wanted to break into some of my new Papertrey dp and for some reason pictured this purple pattern on a monochromatic card. So, voila! Monochromatic card!
I love how this turned out. I tea dye stained the edges of the big square and the sentiment (which had yet to be inked, eek!) to give it a little less "bright" look. I'm really enjoying my tea dye inks. I can't believe I took so long to order them. I'm usually not an "antique-y" card makers, so I was convinced I would never use them. But, once again, after seeing them used around the blog-o-sphere, inspiration finally struck. Maybe I really can use these without having to convert to the antique look. hehe
I am so excited that tomorrow is Thursday. This has just been a rough week... One of those unexpected emotional ones that I'm ready to come to an end. I think my little escape this weekend will help.
Wasn't Lost amazing last night?! I love that show. I love that I can't figure it out, but spend tons of time trying to do just that. I love that it doesn't follow the typical show format; that every episode is unpredictable. And the smoke monster reveal! AH! :)
Thanks for stopping by tonight!
