Happy Friday! Do you know what is funny? I work at home and so you would think that most days it wouldn't matter what "day" it is. Fridays always seem to give me a feeling of freedom and hope. My husband travels a lot for work, and with Friday, I know he may be coming home. While I love my children with all of my heart, it is a welcome time when he is home because of what I like to call the "Testosterone Factor." The "Testosterone Factor" is when the children will behave differently with dad... While there are the same consequences for many of my children's behaviors, Dad being home brings us a sense of peace, calm and comfort! The depth of his voice always brings things under control faster than anything Mom can do! While I can give them the "evil eye", raise my voice, send them to their room, etc., nothing can stop a quarrel faster than the depth of my man's voice saying "Enough!" So after what seems like a week of endless bickering, I look forward to my man returning home. Yippee!
You probably came here to see my card and not hear about why I love Fridays. Right? *SMILE* Today, is Blogger Challenge Day! This week's Bloggers Challenge is to create a project using Blue, Green and Brown...
My first project uses all three of these colors with some yellow too... I just loved this paper and wanted to use it! My card uses QKR Stampede adorable image called Nurse on Neenah Cream card stock and Memento Black Ink. Colored my image up with my Copic Markers and did a touch of airbrushing with my BG000 Copic Marker.
I used SU Autumn Spice Designer Paper that has just a touch of texture- LOVE IT! Colored my image up with my Copic Markers. Added some faux stitching around the Nurse image with SU's retired All In a Row stamp (once of my MOST used stamps ever!) I attached the image with Dimensionals, then added a few Water Dew Drops with some mono glue dots. The card stock I used is Espresso and Wild Wasabi. To top it off, I added a BIG BOW with luscious satin ribbon!
Other Challenges for this card are the Truly Scrumptious - sketch and Blue & Green, Belli Challenge - Something with a B (brown and Bow), Gingerloft Challenges - Anything Goes, Paper Sundaes - Anything in threes - Dew Drops!
My second card uses QKR Stampede's Pumpkin Vine stamp. It is sooo much fun to color! For this project I used Creative Inspiration Paints, Winter Frost mixed with some ink pad refills and painted with my water color paint brush! These paints are great to work with! Easy to use and clean up easily with soap and water! Best of all... check out that shimmer! Sooooo Pretty!
The paper I used is Basic Grey Archaic DP, Moss, Chocolate Chip and Cream Neenah cardstock. I cut the half circles out using my Creative Memories Circle Cutter and punched the edge with a Martha Stewart punch that embossed at the same time. The stitching is once again (the only kind I do! *smile*) is faux stitching with the All in a Row stamp set. I added a bow with Chocolate Satin ribbon and the Cowboy Dew Drops are attached with mini Glue Dots. I have a few angles so you can see the shimmer of the Creative Inspirations Paint.
Here are a few more challenges for my second card for today...
Mercy's Tuesday Sketch, Truly Scrumptious - sketch and Blue & Green, Belli Challenge - Something with a B (brown and Bow), Gingerloft Challenges - Anything Goes, Paper Sundaes - Anything in threes - Dew Drops!, Kaboodle Doodles - Inspiration challenge (I chose some of the colors!)
