The Rusty Whale
If I ever owned a restaurant, I think I would call it the Rusty Whale. Patrons come in to quench their dry throat and end so hungry that they'd eat up everything on the menu. I also think it would make for a cute name to a crafty blog too, it's along the same lines as The Bald Dragonfly...
Heather I., from Come on get Scrappy, and I are teaming up on this fine day for a Carbon Copied post! We are featuring Critters in the Sea and Sophie's Sentiments by Lawn Fawn. Our challenges of choice are: Wee Memoreis-to not use any patterned paper and the sketch challenge over at Lily Pad Cards.
I created my own patterned paper by using the bubbles from the set with embossing powder and distress inks. The whale features a kind of similar technique, but with a lot less water! I really wanted to play off the rust/teal/kraft color combination.The sentiment is a mix of three. (The picture is a bit fuzzy again, I promise you can see more detail if you click on it to make it larger.)
Heather is a whiz when it comes to thinking up creative ways to use Lawn Fawn stamps, she's downright creative and so talented! Please visit Come on get Scrappy and see her take!
