The second challenge at Ellen Hutson's "The Classroom" for World Card Making Day was to be inspired by a the Pinterest photo to the left. Being drawn immediately to the pattern on the bedspread, I chose a stamp from Impression Obsession and stamped it in white and clear embossed it. Then, using Distress Ink's Spun Sugar and Papertrey Ink's Winter Wisteria, I applied ink to the card base. The white embossed image resisted the inks and gave me the look I was going for. I chose black for the sentiment to bring in the black pillows from the photo.
Thank you for visiting.

I'm thrilled to finally get some play time in my "rubber room" and participate in World Card Making Day! It seems like forever since I made a card.
In honor of WCMD, "The Classroom" is hosting a day of challenges from some awesome designers with a prize of a $150 gift card to Ellen Hutson's store up for grabs.
The first challenge was to "create a holiday greeting", and since Julie used a collage of holiday sentiments on her sample card, I took the "greeting" part of the challenge literally. Starting with a Tim Holtz alterations folder, I created an embossed greeting layer and colored with a real red marker from Stampin' UP! a couple of the words for emphasis. Then I die cut a poinsettia using Spellbinder's dies, adding some gold bling to the center. A scrap of ribbon for leaves and a cherry cobbler card base and done! Whew! Boy am I rusty! But it definitely feels good to get inky.
Thank you for stopping by.
