I've been going since 4:30 this morning, but a couple of hours ago I decided I needed a creativity break. So up to my craft room I went.
I made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for their Anything Goes challenge http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2016/01/pbsc-january-anything-goes.html .
I started with ivory linen texture card stock. I sponged tea dye distress ink along one side, then stamped a word background stamp, inking up only portions of the stamp with brushed corduroy ink. Then I stamped Penny Black's cling stamp (Softly 40-319) in India Ink Black ink over the background, and again on another piece of the same textured card stock. I colored the flowers and leaves on the separate piece of card stock with distress markers in fired brick, ripe persimmon, worn lipstick, abandoned coral, crushed olive, and forest moss. Then I cut them out and attached them with dimensional foam tape to the card front. I attached the panel to a piece of craft foam to give it dimension and then to a slightly larger panel. Then I attached that to another piece of craft foam and onto the card front. I like the way the colorful blooms pop on the card.
I'm glad I got my stamping 'fix' in today...even if it is late. I always feel so much better when I've created something.
