Today was a good day. I had time to stamp! I even completed a card! It is a happy day!
Last Friday's Queen for the Day at SCS was Dianne (eured99). You can see her wonderful gallery here. I chose this card as my inspiration. Actually, now I notice that she didn't do my inspiration card until Saturday. Lol, I guess sometimes there can be a benefit to being behind.
I added a layer, and used a different embossing folder, center shape, and colors. The colors are from the Color Challenge, also at SCS, to use Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. Dessert is leaves. I used the thumping technique to ink the leaves. First I inked with Pumpkin Pie, then thumped the edges with an Old Olive marker. The little bird is stamped in Turquoise and cut out to add a bit of dimension. Masking and a bit of sponging with pastels behind the image and it was done.
I'm also sending this to the Less is More Challenge. You may remember from yesterday's post that they are hoping for 1000 submissions this week. I see that they have had over 100 submissions since last evening! Will they make it? I hope so. It's a wonderful challenge with so much inspiration!
