FCCB Challenge-The Great Outdoors

Hi friends! This week at Fantabulous Cricut the challenge is "the great outdoors". Well, to be honest, I wasn't very inspired by this theme at first. I kept racking my brain for something that I could do and a cut I could use. I was going through some old cards the other day and ran across my Beginner and Advanced Brayering cards from my Michelle Zindorf class that I took last August. Ah hah! Inspiration struck and I had an idea! Lookie:



I'm just so tickled with my project. Even more so since it was my first and only brayered background I made. I usually have to try 3 or 4 times before I get the effect I want. I did have one hiccup in this project. I mis-measured the card base and wasn't able to have a mat around the whole panel. Instead of cutting a new card base I just went with the flow and used what I had. My mom said it kind of looks like you are looking through a window. Yeah, I meant to do that! ;)

Supplies:

Cartridge: A Child's Year
Cardstock: Stampin Up-Whisper White, Basic Black, Sahara Sand
Ink: Stampin Up-Basic Black, Apricot Appeal, Crushed Curry, More Mustard, Dusty Durango, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue
Stamps: Innovative Stamp Creations-Birch Tree Paintings
Misc: Brayer, sponge, Post-it notes, ATG 714

Thanks for visiting!
