It Just Figures!

Does this ever happen to you? I let a fellow SU demo borrow two things, just two things on Sunday, and guess which two things I wanted to reach for today?!! That's right. Is it a sickness, is it my mean sub-conscious playing with me?? I haven't used this particular Hodgepodge in ages and yet TODAY I decided I needed to even though I don't have my Designer Label punch at this very moment. No problem, trace the Hodgepodge and cut it out, really not a problem. Except I cut it a bit small and it wasn't enough to glue to the Hodgepodge so now you can see between the paper and the hardware which is NOT the look I was going for. Ah well, I'll just fix it when I get my punch back.

By the way, this color scheme is from today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast! To use Pretty In Pink, Going Gray and Sage Shadow. Also, the rope cording I used here is a retired SU product that I just got at a GREAT price because SU offered some serious discounts to us demos on retired stuff! (Hey, that sounds like a recruiting statement!) One more thing about the main image (a TIP), the dove is colored in with the white Watercolor Pencil in SU's set and to get the flowers Rose Red I first inked the entire thing with Basic Gray, then removed the ink on those flowers with a Blender Pen (yes this works great!) then added the Rose Red ink with my marker. Hope that helps!

Other item I lent out was my Top Note die thinking I've got so many new Big Shot items that I can play with I surely won't miss it. Well, it's like a member of my family is gone. I did manage this card without it... but my DCBD card for tomorrow... well, it just won't be the same. Maybe I've got a spare one cut out that I can trace. Yeah right!

Thanks for stopping by! I swear I am trying to work up some season appropriate fall cards and stop skipping an entire season, but my newest "stuff" is all Christmasy, or mostly. I think this is the last of my new stamp sets so I'll try to move on.

Have a great day,

  9. WOW! I came to comment on your Diva card - love it! But then I saw this beautiful card which I love,love,love the best!
