I'm not sure why some weekends I just need to veg out and don't have an ounce of ambition to me at all. Last weekend was one of those times and I feel like I missed an opportunity to get lots of things done. Instead I only got around to doing the basics of some laundry, dishes, and picking up. Most of the time I should have been creating, I was sitting and staring into space or wandering around trying to think of something fabulous and coming up with a big, huge blank. Yuck!! I finally made one card that I think is worthy of attention. It was made with one of the new sets from the Holiday Catalog that you'll be able to order from in just a few more days (August 1st)!! Here's the sneak peek for you...
Ink: Cajun Craze pad, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, and Crushed Curry markers
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla
Accessories: Big Shot with Apothecary Accents Framelits, Square Lattice TIEF, Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Piercing Tool and Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, and Dimensionals
I love how the main image looks colored in with the markers to enhance it. I didn't really work on getting shading on the image because the way it's made the highlights happen automatically. I also decided not to give it lots of sponging like I normally do for autumn cards, but kept it clean and simple.
Hope you like this idea and give it a try. I've got to get my creative juices going and come up with more ideas using this set. Thanks for stopping by to see what's new. Remember, ordering from the Holiday Catalog starts on August 1st! See you again soon! Sharon
