Waltzingmouse challenge ....

.... and Just Add Ink #44.  I wanted to enter this card into both these challenges, unfortuantely I've missed the deadline for JAI44 - but it's going into this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  Here's the WMSC24 sketch and the colours for JAI44:

I don't have the exact colours stated in the JAI44 challenge, so I opted to use some that I think are a close match.  For river rock I've substituted my card stock, wild wasabi (lovely name) is the green card from my stash and chocolate chip is covered with the embossing powder.  When I saw the WMSC24 sketch I knew exactly which set I'd use to make the card.  But you have to be quiet about it - it's the Secret Set released last year.  I created the background using one of the stamps from the set using two colours of distress ink.  The main image was stamped and emboseed three times, twice on green.  I then cut out layers which I decoupaged.  I love the little line of footprints!!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Secret Santa
Inks: Distress - Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Bundled Sage, Vintage Photo
Embossing Powder: Powder Keg - Orient Express
Card: from my stash (although I think I originally got it from QVC)

Overall, I'm really pleased with this card - but I didn't get it finished in time for the JAI challenge - oh well, there's always next week.

That's all for now - I'll be back tomorrow.

Love the decoupage idea & the background stamping. Those feet are such fun too. Not sure. I love these colours together so unusual.
