Today's challenge --
I was not sure where I was going when I started out. Layer # 3 was tall and narrow. I thought that it needed a large, tall image. I found this one in the set called "Insightful Meadows" by Unity Stamp Company. I also wanted to do something using the emboss resist technique. I stamped the image with VersaMark ink and used a fine detail clear embossing powder to do a heat emboss. I also used a large background stamp to add some interest to the background. For adding the background I used Memento Gray Flannel ink. I then sponged very lightly over the embossed image using Perfect Plum ink. Then I discovered that the retired card stock color "Pale Plum" was a perfect match. To add some depth to the color I used a paint chip that I had picked up the other night while out shopping at Lowe's. It was just what I needed. The sentiment on the vellum was from a 2004 Stampin' Up retired set called "Sweet of You".
I hope that you have some time to be creative today.
