For My Friend


Sometimes procrastination pays off....

I was waiting for the Dryer repair man to come this morning, and didn't have anything ready to post, so I got a late start....Good thing, as I was able to play along with a few challenges. I started with the MoJo Monday Sketch 187 and the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for inspiration.   The Pink Paislee Papers were just perfect for the Tuesday Trigger, and I love the way they look with this sweet Friends image from Stampotique.

The image is stamped in Coffee Archival Ink on a piece of the Pink Paislee paper, then cut with Spellbinders Circle Dies, layered on a Suede Circle, then onto the Pink Paislee panel I cut the circle from.  The light green panel, fits Linda's Gungy Monday Challenge - Texture Fades and Distress, which also happens to fit Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tim Holtz Technique.  For the technique I used the Damask Texture Fades folder and Antique Linen Distress Ink on a piece of Pink Paislee pattern paper.  I realize you don't see a lot of it showing, but trust me, it's there.  I really wasn't happy with the way it turned out on the pattern paper, I prefer the technique much better on a Tag or card stock, but I ran out of coordinating card stock in the color I wanted.  So I improvised.  The Seam Binding is dyed with Rangers Antique Linen Distress Stain - did I mention I just LOVE this product for dying the Seam Binding!
