Ellen Hutson Pinsight January Challenge

Hello everyone!! Happy Monday!!

Not really feeling all that well today. My husband went to the doctors and had a flu test today but was negative. They gave him Tami Flu anyways because he is on biologics that inhibit his immune system. I didn't get my flu shot until this past Saturday. I waited two hours in line at a public health bus for it OUTSIDE!! Why is it that I made sure my child had hers this fall and I didn't think I needed it? One woman in my office has been out for a week with the flu so I am so nervous about picking it up.

Anyway, I am posting two cards today. The first card is for Ellen Hutson's January Pinsight Challenge. This is the first time I am playing!!

I have been making a point of digging out products I have that I never used and inking them up. The flower is Altenew Fantasy Floral Dies that I die cut from paper that I did some ink smooshing on using Ranger "Shaded Lilac" Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Essentials by Ellen "Courage" stamp set.

Here is the inspiration board:

I was inspired by the flowers and the purple blue colors of the peas.

I did a bit of misting on the white background panel as well as some embossing with the dies.

I had SO MUCH fun making this card that I created a similar one!!

This second card I used Freshly Made Sketches #321 as my inspiration.

Instead of using "Shaded Lilac", I inked up my paper with Ranger "Dusty Concord" Distress ink.

I embossed the background using an embossing folder and layered the flower a bit differently then it was intended so more of the purple background showed through. I also used "Twisted Citron" and "Bundled Sage" for the ink smooshing on the leaves.

I tried to get it with this photo but when I was done with the flower I covered it with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Marker to make it shine.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts "Act of Kindness" set.

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Layer It Up.

That is all from me tonight. I thank you for stopping by!! Have a FABULOUS night!!
