Genuine


I just had to participate with the Finding Inspiration in a Layout challenge over at the Moxie Fab blog.  I think it is a fabulous idea!  I loved the background of this scrapbook page (pictured below) with the large blocks of patterned paper, stitching, distressed strips, and ribbon tying everything together.  I emulated those techniques and layout in my card above using some Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend paper, ribbon, and chipboard.  I added a little extra distress around the two largest block of patterned paper using the PTI tea dye duo inks and used two layers of sloppy stitching for this card.  I also used PTI's woodgrain impression plate and the chamomile tea dye ink to bring out the woodgrain a bit more.  Other then a little extra texture I really stuck to the base layout of the scrapbook page.


I am also super excited.  1)  I had a great run tonight 4 mi with a 10:11 min/mile pace.  That is pretty quick for me especially in this humidity and 2)  I made the Schlosser Designs DT (announcement here).  I think #2 might be part of the reason I ran so well...I am quite over the moon about being on their DT starting in August!!

Supplies:
Paper: River Rock cardstock (SU!); Boyfriend Collection Patterned Paper (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink: Basic Black (SU!); Tea Dye Duo Ink (PTI)
Stamps: Garden Variety Stamp Set (Unity)
Extras: Boyfriend Collection Ribbon and Chipboard (Cosmo Cricket); Woodgrain Impression Plate (PTI); Sewing Machine
