Just for you...


Hi,

As it has been a snowy weekend (well mainly Saturday) here in NYC..I have been indoors playing with my stash.

Color Throwdown has been calling my name since Wednesday..the colours are very me!


I decided that I would use a new stencil (by Crafters Workshop) and make something for my Ma..hence the Just for you sentiment!

It's actually not a card it's a big 8x8 thing!!! I didn't want to send Ma another card. She has this little area in her TV / dining room where she keeps pretty things and I thought this might work in a frame or something.

I experimented with the stencil a bit because I didn't have a colour that matched Certainly Celery in my ink pads. So I used a Promarker (Frosted Leaf) and coloured some of the leaves before using Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress inks for the rest of the stencil. The end result has made me very happy!

I think my colour matching is pretty obvious this week, but just incase..
Baja Breeze - backing paper (by Co're-dinations), punched sentiment (by Pink Petticoat) and Broken China ink
Certainly Celery - leaves on stenciled image (Promarker Frosted Leaf)
Whisper White - backing paper (by Co're-dinations) and ribbon
Orchid Opulence - paper strip (by Co're-dinations) and Dusty Concord ink
Smoky Slate - backing paper - that I stenciled on to and the ribbon

I am excited to pop this in the post to Ma..but for now I am going to put my feet up for an hour or two and watch some NFL..Go Seahawks!!
