A Triple Whammy

Good day, friends 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!   Hope you saved some turkey for us Americans :).   I’m a bit jealous as I’ve been craving dressing and pumpkin pie, lately.

Today I am going to show you what happens when I try too hard.   I wanted to play in both the There She Goes weekly challenge (to use Kraft base, black and white with a splash of color; and some dry embossing).   I also wanted to try Joan’s Technique Challenge for today (double stampin’~).   So I hoped over to the Monday Mojo blog and grabbed their sketch so it would be easy, right?   WRONG!

First, I had a dickens of a time with the spritzing the watercolor paper and then stamping.   My image came out looking like a blur, no matter what I tried.   I think my image was too small for the area, too.   But, I stuck with it and went to assembling.   GAH.   Kept looking my pieces on my desk and I think I lost at least four 1/2 pearls as they kept popping off the sheet and flying away.   OY.

I persisted.   I DO love the colors.   I do like the layout.   I want to master the technique, but now I’m tired…LOL

Here are my deets:

Stamps:  There She Goes’ The Journey and There She Goes’ You’re a Hoot (sentiment)

Colors: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Watercolor White, Bermuda Bay, DP

Ink: Bermuda Bay and Tim Holtz Antique Photo

Accessories: Bermuda bay polka dotted grosgrain ribbon, 1/2 pearls, swiss dots embossing folder, slit punch, sticky tape, dimensionals, word window punch, hole punches, tiny white grosgrain, spritz bottle.


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit :)..   Hope you’ll stop back to morrow as I have something special to share!

    Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes 🙂 I’m stuffed like the turkey was and going to have to head out for a walk 🙂 LOVE that colour combo and your persistence paid off. You have used the sketch fabulously and I just love all the pearls – such a gorgeous colour too. I can relate to the flying version of them too LOL!
