Second post for today. Scroll down to see the post about my new car. Yay!
Well, better late than never....
Here's my card for the OLW that's almost over, #145 Spice Girls by Ardyth, a fun challenge! Sorry I'm so late. It's been a crazy week, what with George's sister visiting and us buying a new car.
I went to my husband's spice cabinet for this one. Yes, it's his spice cabinet. I don't cook. I reheat his cooking.
I pulled out poppy seeds and a bay leaf. The card with poppy seeds was hideous beyond belief (those little seeds clumped unattractively...probably a result of the humidity). The bay leaf, though, helped me create a textural--and rather masculine-ish--card.
The wood grain background (Hero Arts), the gold skeleton leaf, and the bay leaf certainly provide some interesting texture, and the colors work well for men or women.
If you haven't played yet, perhaps you'll see this before midnight Tuesday and jump on the challenge in the 11th hour! If you miss it, the next OLW challenge will be on Karen's blog.
And now for my newest stamps...
My first order from Clearly Besotted, along with the cute little card they included with the order. These are great quality, photopolymer stamps. Oh how I love the smell of photopolymer in the morning. At noon. At night. You'll be seeing stuff made with these beauties in the weeks to come!
stamps: Hero Arts
ink: Memories sand
accessories: gold skeleton leaf and bay leaf, glue dot, glue stick
