Just saw the new Pinspired Challenge at Ellen Hutson & got a card made before my busy days begin. Time crafting & commenting will be severely limited for the next couple weeks. I used the red, white & blue colors along with stripes for my "just because" card that will go to a blogging friend. My one Ellen Hutson product is the gorgeous set of dies called Bold Blossom. I used the smooshing technique with Distress Inks barn door, fired brick, faded jeans & weathered wood.
I wish I'd done a second layer of color on the blooms so they were a bit more red instead of looking pink. The 2 darker colors were used for the splatters--just love that look, so it's hard for me to leave backgrounds white now--LOL! I masked the edge of the card front using Washi tape to create the clear embossed stripes. Luckily it dawned on me to add the thin, black strip--what a difference!
I'm not sure if other company's stamps are allowed for the challenge, so again I pulled out my favorite Heidi Swapp alphabet stickers & finished off with 3 white sequins. I did use some scraps, so I'll take this to The Playground.
We had a few days of cooler temperatures, but still no rain. Hope things are going well for you & I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.
