Good morning everyone, a damp day here in Pennsylvania but a nice temp. Fall is just around the corner, you can feel it in the air but I love the cooler temps and the leaves changing, such a pretty time of year I think. Ok, enough rambling, my card for today is for a couple of challenges, the first one is for Kraftin Kimmie and that is to use one of the first stamps you received by her. My image is Clara and I have always loved her. She seems almost Victorian to me and so charming.
And the gorgeous ribbon you see running down the side is from my fellow ladybug (and owner) of Ladybug Crafts Ink, Kerry. She sent me some with my last order and the color is just stunning! To make sure nothing takes away from the color I kept the rest of the colors in the card pretty simple and used a bunch of taupe shades. The sentiment is a digi from Bizzy Becs and I put some scor tape down and crinkled the ribbon along it for some texture. The second challenge I am entering is A Card and a Half which my friend Clare's sister runs. They are asking that you add texture to your card and have a lovely sketch to follow, not too many layers which I like. So I pulled out one of my embossing folders which I really should use more often and centered my image in it then used some chalk to enhance the edges. Anita and Lisa, thanks for the tips and will let you know how the ink dusters work out by the way. Okay, time to make some tea and have some breakfast. Enjoy your day!
