The Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers today to hammer it out for the NFC Championship Title and a trip to the Superbowl-the two haven't met in this situation for 70 years! Although I'm not a Packer Fan, I do live in Wisconsin and it would be great to see our economy get the boost it needs if they win. So with that I say, Go Pack Go!
Plus....Jing-Jing left a comment on a previous post that she would root for the Packers if I played along with the Color Room Challenge #42 this week! After stamping the butterflies in watermark ink, I applied a few colors of mist to an acrylic block, misted it with water and then applied it over the butterflies. A neat effect for a background, but I wanted my butterflies to stand out a bit more for a focal point so I stamped over them in ink. The rest of the card came together with a sketch from Skipping Stones Designs. I chose a versatile sentiment is from Furnishing Fun by Schlosser Designs, I could send it out for a birthday or anniversary I think. I really went out of my comfort zone here, tried a complex layout and new products, so I think this is a great fit to the Wee Memories Challenge: Free Your Creativity-Anything Goes.
