Happy Saturday, everyone! Are you having some crazy weather? We sure are---but no snow like I've seen in some areas, thank goodness! A friend contacted me about a SU set from SAB a couple years ago, Epic Celebration. I stamped a few images for her and sent them off in the mail, but it got me to thinking what a great set it was, and I needed a birthday card for a teenage boy in our church, so off I went to create:
I wish I had gotten a little better picture of it, but its in the mail, so these will have to do! I used the CAS(E) This Sketch layout:
I used the grunge stamp from Label Me Bold to create the ombre-hued layers; I used Basic Gray and Smoky Slate, stamping each full-strength one time, then stamping it again without reinking. A few little speckles from Itty Bitty Background in Riding Hood Red finished my background. Then I stamped the Epic Celebration images in Basic Gray and colored them with Blends and Copics, fussy-cut them out and adhered the to the background:
I stamped the sentiment in Riding Hood Red ink and layered the image on a Riding Hood Red card base! I just love how this turned out!!! Thanks for visiting today!
We had some unbelievable winds Thursday night; I didn't hear them (Nyquil helps) but John did, and when he went out Friday morning, he found this behind his garage:
Blessedly, it wasn't near the house, and it totally missed the garage as well. He said he'll probably take the whole tree down at some point. I am willing to bet it made quite a crack---unless it's like that joke, "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around, does it make a sound?" LOL! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
