SCS Color Challenge and Red Rubber Designs Fern

 Hello, friends! 
 Well, I am still coughing but I think the flu has left the building and I am ready to create again!

I have had a blast all month long as Guest designer for Splitcoasstampers Color Challenge.  The month simply flew by! 

For today's card, I used CC571 colors and Fern Sprig  from Red Rubber Designs.

To create the background I used a stencil and added gesso.  When the gesso was dry I added distress stain to the background.  I enjoy using this gesso resist technique but stamping on the texture can be problematic.  With the deeply etched lines of the Red Rubber Design stamp and the MISTI it was a snap!

For the inside, I used a sentiment from Joyful Notes which can be found in the Red Rubber Designs store.  I chose this sentiment because a relative of a friend was in a car accident hit by a drunk driver.  So very sad.  To find out about her story click HERE.

I hope you have a fabulous week and now before I go, I will leave you with one last look at the beautiful stamp sets I used today.


  1. What a beautiful card Angie - love the colours and the texture of the background!!

  2. Pretty colours and background for your fern. I suspect your MISTI was invaluable here!

  3. Beautiful card Angie inside and out! Love the colorful background!

  4. Oh, Angie, this is gorgeous, and I LOVE the colors! What a great idea to add the gesso first and then ink. Stunning! Yes, the MISTI sure does the trick for stamping over and over for this card. It's beautiful inside and out! Wow! Warm hugs, sweet friend!

  5. So sorry to hear that you've been under the weather, Angie and so happy for you that you are better and hopefully 100% by now!!!!
    Your card is beautiful - what a stunning leaf and the bg is really lovey!!! Love the delicate bow, too!!!! Really stunning!!!!


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
