Here we are with a new challenge for you from The House That Stamps Built - the second one this month - and today it's the popular TTT challenge. Did you have a chance to play in our Designer's Choice Challenge from last week? If not, you still have time - in fact you can get in all the challenges we offer each week until the month closes.
Disclaimer: We have been having some horrible weather these past few weeks and it's been very cloudy. This photo of my card doesn't compliment it well, it looks better in real life. That said, I chose the first vertical row for my card, (gems, water colors, off the edge) However, as you can see, I also got the horizontal middle row (water colors, blue, embossing). The stamps I used are RI#2714-D "Sm. Pine Forest" and RI#5131-I "Pine Needles Sil". The sentiment is RI#8607-D "Thanks".
The background was created using Distress Inks as water colors on 140# watercolor paper. I was playing around with them one day and created a whole bunch of panels using different colors. (You may see more in the future). What was amazing, and made the panel interesting on this one was the paper pilled. That horizon line is the paper’s pilled line when I added too much water. The bottom was Faded Jeans and the top “sky” was Tumbled Glass. This was unintended, I’m not good at water coloring at all, so I love it when a “gift” like this happens.
Oh, just look at the inspiration you'll find on these blogs....
The challenge is open, come on over and play along. All the details can be found at THE HOUSE.
Thanks for stopping by and thank you all for your comments. They mean so much to me.
