Smiles and Laughter



Three of us got together tonight to stamp, and Danita challenged us to work on this week's Basic Grey challenge. I had been gone all day so I didn't have much mojo flowing tonight. I kept mine super simple, painting crackle paint on the chipboard and stamping on some Basic Grey paper that matched the colors in the dsp that I chose (Urban Prairie). The Ranger distress crackle paint in Broken China is a very good match for the blue in this Urban Prairie paper.

After I finished this card, Danita and Chris said that it might have looked better with a solid black ribbon. Possibly so, but I'm too tired to go back and change it. LOL Nighty night!

Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
CS: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Urban Prairie Basic Grey dsp
Other: Paper Studio chipboard, dotted black ribbon, Broken China distress crackle paint, pinking shears

It's beautiful Holly even if you think you were a bit mojoless! Love how you painted the chipboard, I'm with the others on this one and must get some, the blue is absolutely perfect for the paper. Beautiful! Chris
