Hey Girlfriend . . . SC159, WT149

Okay, have you ever had one of those days when things are just not quite working out on every card you make. Well today is that day for me.

This is about version three of this card for WT149 . . . I kept smudging when I was coloring, messing up color wise, basically not being able to stamp well. EEEK! Anyway, this color combination idea came from a card I saw on AJ's (willosmama) blog. These colors do actually match - the silver is hard to see mixed in on the blue, but it makes it a lot lighter looking in real life. . . I embossed clear over black staz on in the background, and then I alcohol inked over top with denim and silver mixative. Sentiment is by My Sentiments Exactly. I punched it out using my SU word window punch. Oh and you might recognize the layout -- it is from the card sketch from yesterday.

Stamps: Hanna But I Need It, Sentiment by My Sentiments Exactly Paper: Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Sierra Sand Ink: Staz On Black, Bashful Blue Accessories: Silver Brads, Tim Holtz alcohol inks - Denim, Tim Holtz Mixative Silver, Aquapainter, Applicator tool, silver leafing pen, black polka dot ribbon, black gelly roll, prismacolor pencils and gamsol
