Wow! It's been 10 days since I posted. I really can't believe that. I wasn't even planning on posting today. I was going to sew today....long overdue. Well, that's until I saw Kristina had another challenge on her site. My first thought was I love these colors but these are fall colors. My reaction to color totally is wrapped around the seasons! After a little thought, I decided to make a father's day card. For once I'm really ahead of the game! I chose the oak tree from Lovely As a Tree because I had yet to use it on a card. I did some thumping to get the two-toned effect. Have you ever tried this? First, I inked the tree in my lightest color (More Mustard.) I colored over the trunk with a Chocolate Chip marker. Then, I randomly added thumps of Really Rust, again with a marker. Give it a huff and stamp! I added the eyelets and the ribbons. So, at some point I will have to make another for my FIL or take the opportunity to make something new.....I'll think do the later, unless I procastinate!
