#the100dayproject : handmade card 31/100-2 : thanks slimline

happy friday friends! we made it to the weekend! personally i am super jazzed about a day off [tomorrow] to enjoy some creative projects, some cleaning & organizational projects and the return of michigan football! woot woot for that!

i'm not sure about you, but this week was a doozy. i'm not sure if it was a full moon or the change in weather, but it seems like no matter where i was - people were crazy. or - maybe it's me, who knows?

this might be the first card that i've made during this challenge with the color swatch where i haven't used every color of ink. i decided to take a slightly different route and so i began with four shades of brown ink and one olive-greeny ink that was similar to the saffron spice. i used distress inks and i blended them together to create my background panel by watercoloring. each card of the four that i made is slightly different and i love that!
