First thing this morning, I got this wonderful sketch in my email box. Such details in the measurements! I must say I did like having those. This card has more layers that I am used to. But I am willing to step out of my comfort zone. And besides, it's using more of my stash!
The base of the card is a very dark brown, then I used black (this is the layer I don't normally do, but I like the way it helps the top layers pop). Then the tan/kraft layer. The patterned paper I used has that beautiful green on the other side. I did several things with this card that I normally don't do. First, is the black layer, that I already mentioned. Second, I applied all layers up to the three think strips then I inked the edges. I usually ink one layer at a time, but I forgot to do it before they were all glued down. To be honest, I love the way it turned out. Third, I picked out my embellishment and sentiment after the card was all cut out. What was I thinking?! I rummaged through my embellishments hoping and praying that I could find something, anything. I feel I lucked out by finding this motorcycle (and the Woody car on the inside of card). I inked around the edges with my distressed inks. Fourth, I inked the fiber. I've NEVER done that before. I felt it needed to be a bit darker. I used my distressed ink and applicator. It turned out very nice.
Because the card base was dark brown, it was necessary to put a lighter CS on the inside. I was able to use the Woody for the inner embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by!
