past, present, future...

Hello friends!!   Woke up this morning to thick fog.  Since we live a on ridge above the Puget Sound and the Port of Tacoma is our neighbor, we have been hearing the foghorn all morning! (As I have been writing this post it has started raining and there is thunder and lightening.  It is a bit weird, though, because it is still foggy and so I haven't actually seen any lightening...just heard the thunder!) Have a little card that I made using another one of the Penny Black "Colorful Christmas" color combos.  I hope that you have checked out all five of the combos and are going to play along.  There are three prizes up for grabs... who doesn't like prizes???


The layout for my card is based on the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  I used the following Penny Black stamps:  winter berries (4273K) and time (4261F).  My card is fairly simple, but a little labor intensive because it involves stamping the "winter berries" image multiple times.  I cut my piece of Rustic White cardstock to size and then began stamping portions of the image using Hero Arts Field Greens ink.  I then layered on VersaMagic Aloe Vera ink and finished with VersaMagic Thatched Straw.   The sentiment was stamped using Tuxedo Black ink.  I mounted the piece on some PTI Fine Linen cardstock to bring in the fourth color in the combo.  I recently purchased a couple of Zig Wink of Stella markers and used my green one to add a little bit of glitter to some of the dark green dots, but it doesn't really show up. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White & Fine Linen; Stamps:  Penny Black; Inks:  Tuxedo Black, Thatched Straw, Aloe Vera, Hero Arts Field Greens; Zig Wink of Stella Green marker.
