Hi everyone! It's Saturday, so that means another challenge from Just Us Girls. This week is our color week, and Ina has chosen a color combothat I just love...red, gray, and black!
I didn't think I was going to get a card done for this challenge. I'm having an estate sale today and yesterday at my mom's house. She recently moved into an assisted living facility and I've been at her house all week sorting, discarding, and pricing items for sale. Yesterday was really busy and went well, but I'm exhausted! I didn't think I'd have any energy to make a card, but I seriously couldn't get these colors out of my head. And I needed a thank you card to send to my best friend, Maria, for helping me all day yesterday. So here's my attempt at these colors.
I wanted to do a very simple card. Of course this is simple, but s*#% happens, as they say. Twice I smudged ink on the panel and had to start over! I just can't seem to make a card without some boo-boo! Anyway, I added the black washi tape to the bottom of the panel then stenciled the red hearts. The sentiment die was cut twice: once from red cardstock and again from fun foam to give the card some dimension. I mounted that panel onto gray cardstock and then added some sequins. The sentiment die was covered with Wink of Stella shimmer. Easy peasy!
I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
