I finally made it back into my stamp room to make something for fun. I went to the Stampin' Up! Regional in Providence yesterday and about a week or so ahead of time was invited to join a group of about 25 ladies who would be doing a swap. So all last week I was frantically trying to put together a card - I even brought stuff to work so that I could cut and assemble on my lunch hour!
The Regional was lots of fun. The day was filled with lots of advice and everyone there received a free stamp set and a Christmas scrapping kit. A few lucky ladies won some other free stuff along the way. By the time I got home I was too tired to do anything creative so I spent the night catching up on blog visits and commenting.
But today I was anxious to my fingers inky and as I did some sponging on this card my fingers are literally inky!
I used the colors from Friday Mashup, Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, and Soft Suede as well as the sketch from retro sketches. I cut the leaves out of the pretty Naturals Composition specialty paper with my Autumn Accents Bigz Die. Then I sponged them with combinations of all the ink. It's difficult to see in the picture, but the acorn was sponged with So Saffron and a little bit of Soft Suede. And one of the leaves looks green because I sponged it with So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise and since yellow and blue make green that's what I ended up with! Oops!
Well, it's back to my stamp room for me. I've got loads to do in there in preparation for my DT challenges this week. Thanks for stopping by!
