Clean & Simple Card Making Online Class - Day 5

Hey, everyone!

Day 5's assignment focused on a distress ink technique show to us by Jennifer McGuire.  Using watercolor paper and heat embossing you create blocks of color over top of your images.  The card she used as an example also had the sentiment embossed and inked over, but with the images I chose, that wouldn't work. 

Love the blues and greens together!

So, it was my turn to pick a letter for a stamp set to use with one of my PTI Pen Pals, Ted.  I chose the letter "S" so we had to choose a PTI stamp set beginning with that letter........but then, Ted through a wrench into the mix........He also challenged us to use colors beginning with "S", too!  So, my mind was

As you can see, I decided to use Scattered Showers Additions as my stamp set.  The base of my card is Simply Chartreuse and I used Shabby Shutters  and Chipped Sapphire for my inks.  I'm really enjoying these challenges!  Thanks, Ted!

I am absolutely loving this class!!!  It's probably my favorite out of all 4 that I've taken.

Materials Used (all PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Scattered Showers Additions stamp set
Hero Arts water color paper
Simply Chartreuse cardstock
Tim Holtz distress inks - Shabby Shutters & Chipped Sapphire

What a cool project. I love how you highlighted the boot and the raindrops. I tried one of these too--first time I've ever used Distress Inks like that.
