Slow start to the day with me still trying to get rid of this congestion & cough and hubby managing to burn his hand. It's one of those things where you say to yourself--"how could I be that stupid?!--so I didn't say anything. He's going to have some blisters, but isn't in a lot of pain, thankfully.
Anyway, I'm finally getting my card posted for Ellen Hutson Mix it Up with Concord & 9th. I used my first C&9 product, Flourish stamp set, so I'm also entering WCMC9.
Finally used a bit of the stem stamped in a light gray. I didn't like it, so went over the whole thing with my pumice stone Distress marker. I used the same inks on the flowers & berries (Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy, Pearlescent Rust & Pearlescent Olive) just in different orders & amounts. The white dots are done with my extra fine point Sharpie which works so much better for me than the white gel pen & the tiny splatters are DI hickory smoke. I stacked the words from EH Merry and Bright dies 2 high, colored with the pumice stone marker & covered them in Crystal Laquer. A tiny gem replaces the dot & I decided against any other embellishments. Not sure who I'll send this to, but think it could work for a masculine BD card. I'm also entering Allsorts. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. Please be safe if you're in the path of the winter storms.
