I have a confession... I was almost late for work because of this card. Have any of you ever done that?! I made it on time though, so no one can say that my hobby is starting to interfere with my day job, ha ha!
For this card I was playing along with Splitcoaststampers' sketch challenge, which was to use this layout:
I just turned it 90 degrees to the left and used the elk as my main image. To start, I masked off a 3/4" bottom strip of the Whisper White cardstock with painter's tape (you can use sticky notes too), and sponged Pumpkin Pie ink just along the bottom. Then I blended in some Daffodil Delight ink, working upwards, and came down from the top with Pacific Point, fading out as I neared the warm colors. Finally, I stamped the elk in the corner and colored him in with a Basic Black marker. I used the sentiment from the same stamp set, which is called The Wilderness Awaits. I just love the bold look of this card. Hope you liked my quick project for today - thanks for stopping by!
