FS # 24 and CCT # 32.....You Rock My Socks!!!


Well, I finally was able to play along with Friday Sketchers this week! I was going through a wee bit of withdrawal there, smile! I haven't done a FS card in two weeks, my goodness, what was wrong with me, lol! So, I combined two challenges this week, as the CCT challenge is to use autumn colours and I am loving this BG Mellow 6x6 pad, so I thought it would be perfect!!!!
This will be a brief post this afternoon. Hubby is having his hockey pool this evening and I need to tidy and vacuum and I spent way too long fiddling with this card....uugghh! It didn't turn out how I envisioned it....just a titch disappointed with it but I spent so much time on it, I thought I would enter in the challenges any way!

I made the card base 6X6 with some Bazzill Basics yellow cardstock and used pp from my new 6X6 pad of BG, Mellow! I stamped Tilda on Pacific Georgia paper and then masked her and stamped the mushrooms from the Magnolia Fall stamp club and the birds. I used my Memento, Rich Cocoa ink for a change and coloured the image with my Copcis. I cut the main image with my largest square Nestibilites and embossed it and then I used the Tim Holtz ink applicator tool and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink to sponge the edges.

I really had a hard time cutting a circle this morning. I messed up my first one with my Provo Craft Curvy Cutter. I think that thing is going to end up in the bin one of these days. Then I managed to selvage the second one...uurrgghhh!!! I inked all the edges of the pp and cut and embossed the scalloped mat for the main image with my largest scalloped Nestibilites die.

I then added some mossy green twill that I had in my stash and cut all the die cuts; the peace heart, circle and folk heart circle and tag with my QK Squeeze. The sentiment is from a new CC designs sentiment set that I got from All That Scraps...love it! I thought this one was the perfect sentiment for this card, as I just love Tilda's slouch socks!!!

Well, there you have it!!! Whata ya think!? I guess it is starting to grow on me, smile!!!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look!!! Hope you have a great weekend! I gotta clean like mad now!!!

later!
