I used Soft Suede and Tangerine Tango for the base of the card, and stamped the little French phrase in Soft Suede, stamping off once each time I inked, all over the Tangerine Tango piece to add interest. I used More Mustard, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze inks....whatever I thought might be "autumn-y". I made this really grungy by distressing all the layers using our distressing tool kit and crumpling and fussing with the edges. Look at the button....did you know we had coordinating thread?
Ha ha! No...we don't! I shaved a very thin slice of Tangerine Tango cardstock using the SU! tabletop cutter and threaded it through the button. Pretty slick if I do say so myself!
I don't think I mentioned here, but DH and I will be on a Caribbean cruise in another week, and I will be offline the whole week! Yikes! That means not only no blogging, but no stamping AND no email or Facebook! Do you think I can survive? I know....I totally rely on my gadgets way too much, but you know me...I'm all about knowing what is going on! I'll post more later, gotta get ready for my Sunday Stampers! Tootle!
