I spent the morning running some errands and then came home and went straight into my craft room.
I'm working on a workshop by Andy Skinner called "The book of ruination". It's fantastic and Andy is so talented. This is a cool project and I cannot wait to show you once I'm done with it. I can't take you through the steps but I can show you my finished book.
I also worked on an ATC that I want to enter into the Wicked Wednesday's Challenge this week. Their challenge is "Sun and Surf" and their sponsor is 2 Cute Ink
I also want to enter this ATC into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge, this week it is "Passport To Fun", it's all about travel and fun!!
I started out with Ranger's ATC sized card stock and used Distress embossing powder in the color Mustard Seed. I also used a sun stencil by Dina Wakley to create a sun.
I then used three different colors of distress inks to color the my background.
I chose a Stampin Up stamp set for this ATC called "The Open Sea". It has this really cool background stamp and I used Stampin Up ink in the color Baja Breeze to stamp my background.
I then used the ship stamp and some Ranger super fine black embossing powder to emboss my ship.
I wrote my sentiment on some scrap cardstock that I first colored with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then edged each one with Blue Jean distress ink. I also edged the outside of my card Blue Jeans too.
This came together quite well, simple but a nice outcome.
Thanks for coming by today, I guess I better go get some dinner started. Making lasagna tonight.
