Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge 3-9-2012

I was feeling inspired this week to start posting to my blog again!  Over on ClubCreatingKeepsakes we have an Issue Challenge and this week we were to scrap an everyday task, moment or event.  I asked my sweet husband to take this picture of me just sitting on my new reclining sofa relaxing with a cup of my favorite coffee.  I also saw an article in the CK magazine about using pigment inks.  I bought some pretty shades of Perfect Pearls and followed the article's idea of using embossing or watermark ink on a stamp.  I stamped the images on the right side of this page with Versamark ink.  Then applied the Perfect Pearls with the smaller round tip brush and then brushed it off with the flat tip brush.  This was an easy technique and I love the turquoise metallic. Then I saw the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs to use Kraft in your project so I thought it would look good against a two-tone background like my coffee mug has.  I think it all came together beautifully.  The kraft tag is a digital element from the Kraft Party Elements kit at http://www.designhousedigital.com/.  The paper is from my stash, the ribbon is Making Memories.  I used the Gypsy Wanderings font and my Cricut to cut the title and little blue bird die-cuts.  A fun project and I love how the colors match my Artistic Touch nails that I had done last Tuesday!  Guess I'm loving this color right now!  Thanks for visiting today!
