Non-Winning Artisan Award- Every Moment Card

Here is the last card I made for Artisan Award this year. I really like the way it came out! (Click on the card to see it bigger!)

I used a few different textures and elements on this card including an embossing folder, sponging, linen thread, vellum card stock, brads, water color paper and dimensionals to give it the finished look.

Here is a close up picture of the stamped image. You can not tell what I did to image from looking at this picture, so I will tell you! I first stamped the image on to Vellum card stock using Black SatzOn ink. Then I flipped the vellum over and colored in the image using classic ink and blender pens, let it dry and then flipped it back over and mounted it onto a piece of water color paper.

Here you can see some of the texture, sponging and dimension of the card.

I like the masculine-earthy feel of this card. It was fun to create because this card just kind of came together as I made it and added each element.

Thanks for looking!
if you were at convention you may have seen this card on the display was there!

LOVE IT! Great colours and a wonderful use of the stamp. This is lovely and you know you're a winner in my book.

This is a definite CASE card. I love it. It's masculine yet could be used for a female outdoorsy person. Thanks for sharing.
