Create Art Every Day


This card was inspired by the cards Ellen Vargo made on the Paperartsy blog. But it turned out to be completely different!



I made a background using Haystack, Limelight, Brown Shed, and Autumn Fire fresco paints. I used some Claret on the corners. Then I stamped the leaves from the ELB02 sheet in Haystack. With black and white pens I outlined the leaves which makes them really pop!

The face and hat are stamps from Lost Coast Designs. The sentiment is an encouragement to myself to get out the paints and stamps every day, also after a busy day at work, LOL.

I love your card... and I *love* that it turned out completely different... different is GOOD... (at least I think it is...)
