Today I have a Design Team card for the Stampsmith Design Blog. I used an image of a Chocolate Shop from the Paris Full Sheet available in the Stampsmith Shop. This card went together fairly quickly, so it is a good layout if you have to make multiples.
The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black ink (Memento) on glossy white CS. The image was colored with Watercolor Pencils (Stampin' Up). I used a wet brush and picked up color right off the pencil. The edges are torn and distressed with Fired Brick ink (Ranger). I mounted it on a torn piece of textured white CS (DCWV), no distressing on this piece.... I wanted the bright white to show. I scored a few lines on another piece of Textured White CS and distressed with Fired Brick ink and tore one end. Wrap a narrow ribbon around this piece and layer with Poppy Parade CS (Stampin' Up). The card base is made from Bright white CS (Staples). And, that's it. Fairly quick and easy.
Lots of beautiful sun shine here today. I put Fall cards in my neighbors' mailboxes this morning. They will have some "good" mail today. I feel like the Happy Card Fairy. LOL.
PS: There is still plenty of time to enter the "All Dressed Up" Challenge over at the Stampsmith Challenge Blog! This challenge is open until 10/14.
Have a groovy day!
