Lsc172 Knotty Cabin

Sorry I havent posted the past couple of days. I think I mentioned that my exclamation point was worn out. Well the next day none of my symbols or numbers worked so I couldnt sign in to my blog. Uggghhh! So you know how you go to town and come back w/everything except what you went to town for? Well guess what I forgot?! Yep a keyboard. LOL!

I made this card for todays Lsc172 and Beates wsc52. I need Fathers day card since I havent even started on them. Masculine cards are not my fave to make so I tend to put them off until the last minute. I LOVE how my card turned out today. Theres alot of dimension on my card since it will be hand delivered. Its very heavy and I had a hard time taking a pic of it b/c it doesnt want to stand up.LOL! Okay onto the deets. I started w/ a garden green card base stamped tone on tone w/canvas background. My next layer is choc chip layered w/close to cocoa strips stamped w/a wood grain background I got at Michaels a couple of years ago. I also sponged all the edges of the strips w/choc chip ink and used my choc chip marker to put a dot to look like nails. The ruby red layer is stamped w/weathered background inked in choc chip and all edges are sponged. I also popped this layer up on dimensionals. For my main image I stamped the cabin from H & M stamps onto Pti white w/timber brown stazon. I colored the image using prismacolor pencils and blended w/gamsol. I wanted to do something so I wasnt left with all the white background so I decided to give the Zindorf brayered scenes a try. I used my Versamarker and covered my image w/clear detail ep. This is the first time Ive ever used it and Ive have it for over a year. I was shocked it worked!LOL! Next I used post it notes to cover the top portion of my image and brayered wild wasabi ink for the grass. I used the garden green marker to make some grass. For the sky I used post it notes and covered the grass. I brayered soft sky and then cool carribbean. The edges are sponged w/garden green and cool carribbean. I layered the main image onto garden green and added stacked two dimensionals to pop it up. The Dads cabin sign is also popped up on the image. Since this was a masculine card I thought twill ribbon was the best way to go. I stamped the sentiment from the set onto twill ribbon and I think it was the perfect embellishment for my card.

Have a great weekend!
