Now for my card!  This was a fun one to work on if I must say so myself and I loved the colors that Starla challenged us to use.


For the image panel, I started with Wrinkle-Free Distress and used watercolor paper.  Once I had the background look I wanted, I stamped the image in Archival Coffee.  To enhance the image, I water colored the flowers a little darker than the background.  I couldn’t help but sponge the edges of all the paper and sew the background onto another panel.  Not being one to let it go, I then added some layers behind the image.


I wanted my ribbon to be a little dirty and not so frilly for this card.  I ended up dying some May Arts Ribbon White Twill with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and water.  After the twill was dry, I felt it needed to be more shabby so I swiped some Vintage Photo along the twill and rubbed it in.  Now that was fun!

That’s all I have for today, except I sure hope you play along with the JFF Designers in the Color Challenge.  Check it out on the Just For Fun® Blog!

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, make each day count and enjoy the adventures the day brings you!
