I like the earthy colors and such a great idea to off set the stencil for a different effect! I have to try that! And I like your thoughts on Martha Stewart and Tim Holtz working together! lol!
Great job and TFS!
lovely card, great sentiment and like the off set on your background
Very rich colors. Love all of it. Thanks for sharing the details.
Hi, Michelle! I love that you offset the stencil and inked it twice to get a shadow effect! Very creative! ♥
Lovely card. the sentiment is great and the background is amazing.
Sorry I didn't offer any details earlier. I don't know WHAT I was thinking!
First I inked up some paper with "squeezed lemonade" (yellow) distress ink. Then I used a dylusions 5x8 "Number Jumble" stencil from ranger and inked it with "wild honey" ink. Then I shifted the stencil slightly up and to the left and inked it again with "vintage photo" (brown). This gave the off-set look. Then the background looked blah so I lightly inked the triangular design on the edge of the stencil over the top. But in hindsight, I wish that I had done that step first. The quote came from a Tim Hotz Stampers Anonymous "Life's Possibilites" clear set. And I used a Martha Stewart corner punch to get that "arch" on the sentiment mat. I like mixing Tim Holtz and Martha Stewart products because they seem such complete opposites. I would love to see them actually work together. I imagine Martha saying, "Tim, don't you think that you've used enough of that grunge stuff? Eww"!
