Joy *Day 3*

*NOTE: If you have just arrived here from the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom blog, go HERE (or scroll down) to leave a comment for the giveaway!
Here is our next great card by Joy:
Joy's card is just too lovely! The oval with the scallop is the perfect centerpiece. And the plaid background suits the chair stamp beautifully. Finally, once again I can't get enough of this color scheme!
Here is my take: I began this card by stamping the sillouette stamp by Hero Arts on tan cardstock using VersaMark ink. Next, I heat embossed this image with clear embossing powder. I colored the leaves and branches with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Markers, wiping the excess where I colored outside of the lines with a baby wipe. Then I went over the entire oval panel with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The red background was distressed with Brushed Corduroy and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Finally, I stamped the Envelope Pattern stamp from Hero Arts using Fired Brick Distress Ink.
Thanks again for visiting and making my day with all of your support, visits, and comments! And happy St. Patricks Day!! HUGS!

Good evening Jill
I really enjoyed your stamp - color - spritz tech. All that's left is to cross my fingers and win some Faber markders so I can try out your great ideas.
Keep up the good work.
Hugs, Trisha
