Today has definitely been a challenge. Unexpected car repair AND the kitchen pipes, under the sink, decided to spring a leak and create a lake in my kitchen....sigh. So, I decided to take a break from the hassels of life and create a card for a couple of blogs I follow. And what better way to deal with challenges than do some challenges.
The Pixie Cottage challenge #12 this week is all about circles...big, small, one, many...we decide...round and round we go.
Over on the Color Q blog, challenge #25 presents us with this week's color challenge: Celery, Banana, Turquoise, Chocolate Chip and White...why am I hungry all of a sudden.
Because I'm usually strapped for spare scrapping time, I thought, why not combine both challenges into one Thank You card for my dear Mom...who did not know that in sending me a care package earlier this week, it would arrive on this very day when I needed it most. God bless Moms!! So without any further chit chatter, here it is:
I think I have the circle thing down for Pixie Cottage. I decided to pick up most of the color scheme, for the Color Q challenge, in my stamp as well as the card itself. Here I have a close up of the Inkadinkadoo stamp that I've practiced, yet again, with my foray into Copic markers. I embossed the white background using a Fiskars template and then lightly swiped the top with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, to catch the raised dots. The brown center circle has been glazed with Crackle Accents by Ranger.
Thanks again Mom! Love you!
