Limited Rubber Romance Challenge

I had some time to do the Limited Supplies Challenge for today which was to use no white or vanilla cardstock. Now, I love using Kraft cardstock so I immediately thought of doing something with Kraft but since this is a challenge I decided to not use it. Blush Blossom is one of the colors that I rarely use. I think I'm still on my first pack I bought and I think the Soft Subtles families is one of the first families that I wanted to complete since they were some of the first colors I used prior to becoming a demo. Ironically, I rarely use them now.

The cardbase is Ruby Red and the patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Infuse collection. I stamped Jane from Rubber Romance onto Blush Blossom with Pallette Hybrid Burnt Umber and colored her in with my WWC (Old Olive, Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, and Chocolate Chip) and aquapainters. I lightly sponged around the outside with Creamy Caramel and highlighted her jewelry with Icicle Stickles--it's a good thing I'm messy and don't put all my stuff away since it's forcing me to use it up more often :-) I stamped the sentiment from PapertreyINK Faux Ribbon with Chocolate Chip ink on Blush Blossom and then punched it out. I admit, I really don't use the ribbon pieces but I love all the sentiments in this set! Then I added the little flourishes above and below it and a dot of stickles in the center of each flourish. I matted this on a punched out Chocolate Chip circle. This is mounted on dimensionals. I felt like it was still missing a little something so I added some paper piercing in the upper right corner. Voila!!!!!

I'm hoping we don't lose power--there are thousands of people in the area without power which probably won't be back on throughout the weekend! I know it's not snow and ice but we're having a major rainstorm right now. Dh says that if we lose power, he thinks we should leave and go to a hotel. That's great for us but I do worry about the dogs :-)

Thanks for visiting.
