Embrace Your "New" Dreams


As promised - here is a card using some of my new Rubbernecker stamps - my first as a member of the Design Team! Whoo Hoo!!!

The Ways to Use it Challenge on Split Coast was to use something new - how convenient!?! On this card I used the background Bed of Roses, the bird branch and one of the sentiments (Embrace Your Dreams) from the Floral Silhouettes set.
My sketch is this weeks MojoMonday (on it's side)and I chose my colors and stamps based on the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger
I clear embossed the background and the bird on the branch after stamping them with Memento Desert Sand ink so they would show up against the textured Bazzill card stock.

I layered a piece of vintage lace over some magic mesh and I dry embossed the mustard panel with the forest branches cuttlebug folder. To finish up - I did some random paper piercing and added a few dew drops as well as the sentiment piece.
You can see the sentiment stamping better IRL - I stamped it with Potters Clay ink that kind of blends in -but I tried it in black and it was too stark looking with all the soft tans going on here.
Thanks so much for dropping by today! It's FRIDAY!!! What's up for your weekend?
