Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge!

>> Friday, September 24, 2010

It's friday so that means another Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge for you from Paper Makeup Stamps. I KNOW - i've participated 2 weeks in a row! WOOT! This week we were challenged by Lisa McKinney to use this fun photo as inspiration for our project.

Now for anyone who knows me... they know i take inspiration challenges a smidgen literally. Probably entirely TOO literally! haha! Here's the card i so didnt really come up with...

Yeah i'm not so original, huh? I did have fun stamping the grass in orange. hehehe. Ok... so here's my breakdown of how i made the card...

First i took the grass from the Faith Hope Love set and first stamped it a little high in a burnt orange ink color (Autumn Terracotta by CTMH) and then again in a brown color so that the grass hung off the cardstock a bit giving me 2 different heights.
Then i stamped the swirlie tree in the same brown ink over the whole cardfront.
The sun image i created the same way i did in my post the other day (you can see it HERE if you missed it). This time i used Y15 copic marker with YR18 to give it a little depth.
Last but not least, i stamped the Ready for Fall sentiment right on top of it all.
The edges were sponged with Rusty Hinge distress ink.
I then layered my cardfront twice and bada bing bada boom my card was done. All in about 10 minutes. So i may not be original, but i was fast! hehehe!

Cute card Katie - I saw the grass in the inspiration pic and immediately thought of this similar layout. We'll have to see If I can do something a LITTLE bit different :) I laughed when I read your comment about taking challenges a little too literally -that's EXACTLY what your mom said in a comment she left for me :0) !! Like mother like daughter. Have a great weekend!
