Rockin' Vanilla Skies

Love that name for Emily's color challenge today...to use Soft Sky, River Rock, and Very Vanilla.

My mom asked me to make a birthday card for my uncle, so this is what I came up with. I thought the muted tones would make a nice masculine card and they also reminded me of this waterfall stamp I just bought at my local stamp store.

I combined it with Mojo Sketch #47 (I just moved the sentiment onto the oval and put the colored image on the rectangle panel...hope that's okay) and two of today's Dare to Get Dirty '08 Challenges...Michelle's Masculine Cards and Christine's Watercoloring Cards.

I colored the waterfall image with River Rock, Soft Sky, and Wild Wasabi reinkers. The black scalloped oval is up on dimensionals and the soft sky oval is up on a second layer. The inside of the card has two thin strips of River Rock and Soft Sky at the bottom.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Unknown Waterfall Stamp (sorry about that...there's no name on it), SU Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Soft Sky, River Rock
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, River Rock, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Brads, Rectangle and Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities, Corner Rounder (which evidently needs to be tossed because it's not giving me clean edges), Dimensionals
Technique: Watercoloring


Thanks for stopping by. I'm hoping to get to some more of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges so I might be back later today!
