Asteroid Belt Card


It's been a very long time.......

......... I needed to step back and adjust priorities. I needed to simplify and eliminate some  things in my life. Unfortunately, my blog got neglected, mostly because I haven't done much creating that I could share. I hope this is the start of posting again.   Thanks to all of you who are still following! 

Last Saturday, Fond Memories held their fall workshop. It was a fun day teaching  this card:

I created the colorful background with a new stamp called Asteroid Belt from Impression Obsession designed by Seth Apter.  He just released a whole collection.  (you can see his blog here and his webpage here.)  The image was stamped repeatedly across white card stock and heat embossed with black EP.  Then the color was sponged on.  These are new Distress colors Twisted Citron(green) and Blueprint Sketch (blue). Love this combination!  A few spritzes of water over the ink added water spots.  Small accent dots were added with Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Pico Embellisher Tuxedo Black.   The verse was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  Bakers twine is stapled to the verse strip.  A very simple card sketch and easy to make! 

Happy creating!
