ORANGE AND BLUE MONDAY!!


It's Monday that means a new 2 sketches 4 you to try.
I cuddlebugged, I crimped, I used the chalkboard technique all kinds of stuff.
I doesn't show up a lot but the blue is cuddlebugged with the circles. I made the scallops with my slit punch. I haven't ordered any new SU yet I wanted to wait and really know what I wanted. I am still on the fence so therefore I had to make my own scallops.
The color dots on the scallops are done with the chalkboard technique. You stamp whisper white craft ink and then before it has a chance to dry you rub your chalks in it. Love the way it looks. You can click on the picture to enlarge it and see more details.
I like the way the colors turned out on this card.

How did she do that?
Stamps: Warm Words and the flower center from Heartfelt thanks
Ink: Whisper White and Basic Black
Paper: Basic Black, Only Orange and Brilliant Blue
Tools: Cuddlebug, Crimper, Slit punch, Corner Rounder, glue dots
Embellishments: Black Brads, Green Ribbon and a black button.
Oh Yeah...my SU Chalks can't forget those!!

If we make it through tomorrow we are half way through the work week...can anyone else tell that it will be a full moon on Friday????
It brings the strange out in people LOL

Thanks for coming to see me!!!
