SCS Limited Supplies Challenge 224


Happy Friday everyone! This card is for today's Limited Supply Challenge over at SCS! Here were our instructions:
"Your creations this week should use only colors of water (ANY shades of blues, grays and greens) and sand (ANY neutrals). Other required elements: (use ALL) 1)ribbon, hemp/twine, OR fibers 2)brads 3)piercing."

I didn't have ANY Sage Shadow paper, so I decided to make my own! To make my background piece on this card, I started out with a piece of white cardstock, then used my brayer to add Sage Shadow on one half and Creamy Caramel on the bottom half. Next I sponged over the brayerd ink to give it a more even look. Then I ran the entire piece through a CuttleBug Folder and rubbed the ink pads directly onto the embossed parts to define them a little more. And finally, I pierced around some of the designs. The ribbon is some old SU stuff that I have been saving (Hello, my name is Nikki and I am a ribbon hoarder). What do you think?

Ingredients: Stamps: Stampin' Up! {A Little Something}; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! {Whisper White, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip}; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel}; Accessories: Stampin' Up! {Circle and Scallop Circle Punches, Ribbon, Brads, Crafter's Tool Kit}, CB Embossing Folder.
