No Flowers Here
Thursday, May 23, 2013
Linda's leading the Ways to Use It Challenge at Splitcoast this week. We're to showcase something in the yard/garden but it can't be flowers. So my next favorite thing to flowers...leaves of course! But with spring well underway...those leaves in the garden are a long ways off and I'm happy about that!
I've used the acrylic block technique today. Taking a large rectangular acrylic block, I added three shades of Distress Ink in random fashion, spritzed it with water and stamped it on my card. Next, since I still had the Penny Black Dahlias stamp set on my table, I used the leaves from that set and stamped them randomly over top with the same three colors.
Added the Verse sentiment and three little doodads from a set of Martha Stewart embellies that I have. Easy peasy, less than 10 minutes card for sure!
Here's what I used:
Paper: Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury card stock
Ink: Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps: Penny Black Dahlias and Verve Words of Wisdom
All the other stuff: acrylic block, water mister, Martha Stewart embellies, Ranger Glossy Accents
Back soon with more my friends!
