I am posting a little later tonight, but I am so excited to share the card I have made for the Mojo Monday #259 Challenge and the Friday Mashup Challenge #77. I have been joining in on several CAS challenges and this challenge is more layers and more details. I have been thinking about this for several days and was happy when the card looked like what I had imagined! :) Here are the challenge guidlelines:
The Friday Mashup we are to 1. Create and Indian Summer Project or 2. Create a project using 3 of the following: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Raspberry Ripple, or More Mustard. or 3. Mash it up and Do both!
Here is my card...
I tried to use some things I had not used in a while or ever. I decided to use River Rock, Cajun Craze, Lucky Limeade (because I am addicted!), and Early Espresso. I NEVER use River Rock and I thought it would make a great base for this card. I used the En Francis background stamp and inked it with River Rock. I then used Early Espresso and used the Rock and Roll method but basically in selective areas of the background stamp. I then used sponge doubers to darken the edges to make the details of the card stand out a bit more.
The part of he card I was most excited about was how the Paper Doily turned out. It was a little bigger than I wanted so I trimmed off the outer layer. This was much easier to do than what I thought it was going to be. When I layer it with the First Edition DSP it need a bit more color. So I tried something that I had never tried before. I used the negative pieces from a Paper Doily cut with Lucky Limeade and Cajun Craze to add some color detail to the doily. I know it sounds tedious and time consuming, but it really wasn't! It was similar to the "fussy cutting." I just needed a little patience. To me, it was well worth the effort. Here is a closer look...
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look! Have a great weekend!! :)
