Finishing up business

In a previous blog post, found here: Onward I Go, I was working with little man on a Mother's Day card for his mommy. In the process of making her card, we did more than one background and he picked the one he wanted. Today, I am finishing business by showing what I did with the remaining backgrounds. All were made in the same way; chalk,VersaMark ink, embossing powder.
While the results are beautiful in person, I found it very hard to capture the colors with a camera so please forgive my poor photography skills.

Here we go:

I also made another card for my nephew in boot camp. This one was the worst to photograph! I actually have been debating about showing it but what the heck! The lion was stamped and embossed on rust cardstock and then lightened with bleach. The card it is mounted to is actually a craft paper color. I think the new light bulb in my lamp is causing my problem with colors; it's a new energy efficient bulb. I can only say it did not save me any energy with all the different ways I tried to capture the correct colors!

Parting thought for the day:                                                                                                                   Do the best you can, and don't take life too serious.

  1. Love the cards you made with the backgrounds. What stamp is that B? The lion looks cool too. You did a great job as always!

    1. Thank you for the kind words Maria. The main stamp if Paper Floral
      from Fun Stampers Journey. There is a link to it on the Onward I Go post. The lion stamp is from Stampendous, #R093 Lion. I have it for a looong time so I am thinking it's probably easier found on sites like e-bay than from the manufacturer.
