Happy Monday

Hi Everyone,

Today is a big day for me – my first Monday in my new life. I recently resigned my full-time job and start my part-time job tomorrow. The rest of the week I am going to explore some ideas for a crafty business, so I need to get myself organized ASAP! Spent the entire weekend clearing out my supplies & putting lots of old stuff on Ebay. Whilst I’m desperate to get inky, there is lots of ‘business’ stuff that needs to get accomplished first…

Anyway, on to today’s card – the colors for this card are based on the challenge over at Dawn’s blog, Stamp Away with Me. These colors are beautiful, but they were definitely a challenge! The card is also for the current Case Study Challenge.

I stamped the Fabric design background stamp with Versa Color Sea Foam ink & embossed with clear embossing powder. I inked the background with Milled Lavender Distress Ink – I got this idea from Kimberly Crawford who showcased this recently – I never think to do emboss resist with anything but white/clear embossing powder, so this was a fun change. Next time I would use colored embossing powder vs. colored ink for more impact.
Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow! What a move! I completely admire you for taking the great leap and wish you every success!!!
    Shame you can’t just focus on the fun creative stuff all the time, but here’s hoping you get the icky business stuff outta the way soon ;D
    Love your card – I do have an unhealthy obsession with that background stamp myself y’know!
