I worked really hard to use all Stampin' Up products, well, except for the background. I sponged natural white with a Chai tea bag (after I made a cup to drink) then I sprinkled it with instant coffee granules. My card wasn't as wet as it needed to be so I misted it with water and then it melted into the card stock. I dabbed with a paper towel (wish I had skipped that part). It looked too flat so I wrinkled it up while it was still wet. Then I mixed a little water with summer yellow re-inker and spritzed again. I dried it with a heat gun and then stacked a heavy box on it to flatten it out some. I also spritz it with Vanilla Shimmer to give it some glitz. I got this idea from The Pixie Cottage tutorial posted today.
I am entering this card in the following challenges -
365 Cards, Day 171, Wacky Color Wednesday to use Brown, Grey, and Yellow. Be sure to check out the DT card too - that's my daughter Kim! (insert one proud mama! :)
I used the Clean and Simple Sketch for the layout.
Incy Wincy Designs to use yellow.
Let's Ink It Up FIRST challenge is Anything Goes with a twist - I guess it's a lemon twist because they want to see some yellow! Good luck with the new challenge!
The Pink Elephant to use ribbon and sparkles - look close (enlarge pic) and you'll see the 'smooch'!
Res-Q Challenge is looking for therapy ideas! Well, I tried a new technique on the card and that was fun and wrinkling the card stock was really good therapy!
Speedy the Cat's Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers is to make a Harvest Card.
Thanks for stopping by! SAM
