Dog Lily's Patented Syrup Of Kindness...
I know, I know! What a great name for a Cure All, hey? I just love this collection of stamping goodness from Waltzingmouse Stamps. This goodie comes from Waltzingmouse Stamps Rescue Remedies set. In my opinion, this set is a real must have. No more angsting over what sentiment to use, as they can, absolutely, stand alone with great effect.
I made this card for this fortnight's CR84FN Color Challenge showcasing the colors: Orange, Yellow, and Brown. What an amazing autumnal array of color! I was delighted to get into my corrugated cardboard groove once again. I just love the stuff. By finger, I titivated the Spellbinders Label 4 die cut cardboard with copper, gold and a small swipe of brown acrylic paint and away I went. Heat embossing is always a bit of a hair-raiser for me, because even with my trusty Embossing Buddy in tow, I still manage to get the rogue bits of embossing powder sealed onto my project. Drats! Oh well. I reckon it kind of adds to the label's vintage appeal. *wink* Well, that's my story and I am sticking to it. This card was a relatively quick one to make and was certainly relaxing (outside of the heat embossing that is). Ah, the joys.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an extraordinary day!
