#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?

the wheel landed on ink blending which it's done a few times already during this challenge. i decided to add in a monochromatic color scheme, birthday for the topic with stenciling and 3-d elements for detail. since i was sticking with only using one color, i decided to go light handed to heavy handed on the ink blending to get different values of the same color. [i created an additional wheel with the basic colors [red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple to help me decide on a color family to use.] that wheel landed on purple!

for the first time this round, the inspiration wheel landed on slimline card! i'm both excited and intimidated by this style since i don't have a lot of practice with them. on today's card i combined some awesome patterned paper along with a variety of die-cuts and one of my favorite elements - rainbow colors!

#the100dayproject : 9/100-2

for the second day in a row the inspiration wheel landed on ink blending! i decided to combine it with a stencil today [actually two] in order to create a partial background in the center of the card. 

four shades of distress ink [hickory smoke, chipped sapphire, wilted violet, & blueprint sketch] are layered together to create my version of a dark and stormy night. i used the cloud stencil from lawn fawn and a circle stencil from mft. i'm a big fan of the way that each of these cards turned out slightly different because of the blending.
