Saturday Spotlight Challenge was to get messy on your card. I did an alcohol ink background for the cuckoo image; sanded/distressed the background Cuttlebug Script layer (Co-ordination paper that is actually Dark Teal colour IRL) and inked with Versamark Chalk "Wheat"; also inked/sponged the layers with SU Blue Bayou. My fingers had lots of ink stains after doing all that!
This card also qualifies for several other challenges:
Allsorts Blog-Saturday challenge #40 - tag, ticket or label
Stamping Sisters Challenge #27 Esther - "Time" - Cuckoo clock
Crafty Creations -Challenge #55 - Stitching
Tuesday Taggers Feb. 16th - Time Theme
Stamp Simply - Challenge #127 - Recipe Card with a Twist - index tab - SU Punch
I dropped my camera the other day, and hope I didn't damage it. I noticed on the last two pics of cards that they seem "distorted" in shape, rather they look bent or rounded in the middle, and the colour is way off on the above card. In real life, the Coordination Paper is much darker teal, more like the colour of the Copic marker on the cuckoo clock;the yellow Bazzill is deeper yellow; and the patterned paper is teal, rather than sort of grey. All the colours look washed out or something. I guess I'll have to wait and see if it corrects over time. (SIGH!)
That's all for today!
