Its time for another Friends Having Fun color challenge! Allison picked for us the colors of a desert sunset .... turquoise, terra cotta and lemon yellow. I had several great paper packs to choose from in these colors Cosmo Cricket Halway Cafe, Wanted and Crate Paper Crush and I went with Cosmo Cricket's Halfway Cafe. I sanded the paper edges just to make it a bit softer. The textured background is made by using an embossing machine, and then inking the raised portions. This card is also from Unity Stamp Co's second anniversary challenge - Unity Takes Flight. The bird and sentiment are stamped on oak veneer (very, very thin wood). I had a card posted yesterday that used these colors, too!
Stamps: Sweet Sparrow from Unity Stamp Co.
Cardstock: Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart from Papertrey Ink, Halfway Cafe paper from Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Terracotta from Papertrey Ink, Cocoa Bean from Memento, and Broken China from Tim Holtz distress inks.
Accessories: a little brass key that I dipped in versamark and heat embossed to a copper patina, wood veneer, ribbon.
