a work of ART

Hi friends! Okay, this is my last post for the evening, sharing the final card I created this afternoon for The Outlawz Challenges. I’ve had so much fun over the past few days! This one-layer card (woot-woot – one-layer cards are difficult for me) is for the Twisted Thursdays Challenge where STAMPlorations is our sponsor. It’s an Anything Goes challenge with an optional twist of using a stamp from our sponsor. NAILED IT! I used the awesome Art Is stamp set to create this note card. Awesome quote by Oscar Wilde! ;)


I did some simple distress ink smooshing and splattering. That’s the beauty of this 110# cardstock – it doesn’t wimp out with the use of a little water on it. I smooshed with peacock feathers distress ink, then splattered chipped sapphire with a fan brush, and then stamped the image in faded jeans archival ink. I left the inside totally blank to use this as a note card.


One final look… totally loving how this turned out! This would be SO easy to mass produce to create a set to gift! I’m always thinking of gift ideas!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
