Scrapgirl Angie's Challenge

Hello Everyone, ScrapGirl Angie has a great challenge posted on her blog, to create an easel card using her favorite colors Red and Brown. She really made me think outside the colors I tend to lean toward and that was a big challenge for me. She also gave some hints as to what she likes (Holidays and Maggies) so I did my best. Winner will send thier card to her for keeps and with that in mind I wanted to make sure I gave every detail special attention. Angie is among one of the great distress ink artists that I look for inspiration.

These beautiful colors reminds me of Thanksgiving. Cranberry sauce and a beautifully roasted turkey. YUM!! The large rose is handmade using Tattered Florals die. Peach Tilda is colored in distress inks. Kim Piggott's blog, another great distress ink artist inspired the colors I used.

I'm also entering this in the Cupcake Craft Challenge, this week it's distressing, my favorite!!

Distress inks
