When I sat down to work on my card for The Play Date Cafe's current color challenge
right away I thought of some patterned paper I have from Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe collection:
I stamped the flowers from Hero Arts CG434 Floral Blossoms in Ranger worn lipstick distress ink. The sentiment from Hero Arts CL129 Anytime Messages is stamped in Hero Arts soft brown shadow ink. I used this sentiment as kind of a nod to the gal bent over looking at the flowers in the color story picture:) All edges were lightly inked with Ranger antique linen distress ink.
Other Materials Used: Stampin' Up cs, seam binding ribbon, pp, button and twine, Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder, Papertrey ink cs, Nesties, another paper doily "rescued" from a restaurant dessert :)
I'm also entering my card in this week's Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" challenge. They are featuring twine this week and I did use a wee bit of twine on the button.
I've been having a frustrating time trying to take better pics of my cards:( Awhile ago my hubby built me a light tent using directions I obtained on the Paper Crafts website. I've been experimenting with different light bulbs (soft, bright and combo of both) and even bought an inexpensive white sheet as I wondered if the old one I was using had too much of a yellow tinge to it. Would LOVE your feedback on the pic above!! This one was taken using bright bulbs in the utility lamps - does it look TOO bright????
Thanks for all your lovely comments and suggestions!
