Live Your Life In Color... And a DT CALL

Today I am showing this card over on The Alley Way Stamps Blog...

Stamps Used:


I made the background with the hopes of it looking like framed art.  I started by coloring randomly with my distress markers, and then created an overlay with vellum and the Star of the Show Stamp Set.  I then "framed" it with gold cardstock.  I felt like it needed someone to enjoy the artwork, so I added that sweet little bird image.  Hope you like it!

In other news The Alley Way Stamps is having a DT Call right now and we would love to see you enter!

Feeling a little Salty... my card that is...

and by saying it feels salty, well it actually does... because I put sea salt on it.  Yep, I'm super weird like that, hehehehe!  When I saw the Mama Elephant GD Challenge photo, my first thought was Sea Salt:






It could be the giant jar of Sea Salt in the picture, but my mind flew to the tiny jar on my oven stove, hehehe!  And from this thought, came this card:




This card is much prettier in person... the green splotches have a softer green to them, and the main photo couldn't quite capture the layer of vellum around the panel of the card (you can kid of see it in the first photo if you look again.).   Plus the sea salt has a shine to it in person as well.  But I hope you were inspired to think out of the box a little when getting your craft on!
