I am still amidst dust and drilling and sawing here...
I have a card today that I am sending to
The Challenge. It is their 32nd week and my very first time playing!
I have been working on some graduation cards for the Co-Op grocery store and as we are in Austin, home to University of Texas with probably the largest student body campus in the US, you can imagine that some of my cards are made with the burnt orange colour. I find it quite a masculine colour, but have paired with a deep pink here on this little owl with chalkboard sign. The background is dry embossed with these dotted circle rings and I placed 3/4" pink circles (my polka dots) on the left side to add a little interest. My owl, manufacturer unknown, was stamped onto linen textured card stock from my stash and coloured with the now discontinued SU alcohol markers. I also used the orange on the chalkboard edges that were originally yellow and then heat embossed a PTI sentiment that I cut "hooray" off of with a pearl embossing powder. The big YOU die is from SSS and I was lucky enough to win this last Fall. I placed two teensy black brads for the owls eyes and she is looking up at the "did it"! I will also be sending over to the Monday challenge over at SSS where the ever popular Anything Goes challenge is, well, going on :)
Hope that you are having a great start to your week!
Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek!
