Thoughts and Prayers


Wow…a LOT of you enjoyed the Tour de Freaks Blog Tour over the past couple days!  Thank you for stopping by!  Stay tuned…the next one is August 20th from your favorite Control Freak Swappers!

Over on Late Night Stampers, the challenge this week is using Pink and Black on your cards!  Personally…one of my favorite color combinations!  I decided to pull out one of my favorite sets, Thoughts & Prayers, and a fun technique, Pierced Spotlighting!  I added a twist to the spotlighting, though.

First I stamped the branch image in Basic Black on Whisper White and layered it on Melon Mambo…one of the new In Colors!  Then I used my Pick A Petal Brass Stencil and Piercing Tool to pierce around an area highlighting the flowers.  I punched a 1 1/4 circle on a post it note, placed it over the pierced circle area and sponged a little Pretty in Pink ink with my Sponge Dauber just in that area (the twist!)  I used the Melon Mambo marker to color the small flowers.  Adding that sponging made the spotlighted area pop even more!  I added Thinking of You with Melon Mambo ink.

I finished the card by layering the focal element on Basic Black.  I used a base of Pretty in Pink cardstock and layered some Raspberry Lemonade Designer Paper along the left side and added the Pretty in Pink striped ribbon.  The focal element was placed on the front with Dimensionals.

Pretty simple card…easy to put together and mass produce.  I like those!

Hope you have a great day!  A little cloudy and rainy today, but we needed it!

Happy birthday to my upline, Candy!!!!
