A little funky

Happy Sunday - a new day, a new week. Today the last of the challenges for the Dare to Get Dirty fan club challenges will be posted on SCS. I'm still behind, but I did get one of Friday's done last night. I couldn't post it though, because I had my camera on the charger.

This card was made for Joan's silhouette challenge. I used wet paper watercoloring, a fun and easy technique. Recently I saw a card on someone's blog that had some buttons on circles in a vertical strip, but now I can't find it to give credit for the idea. The card was in pastels with a print of stuffed animals. If you know where that is, let me know and I add appropriate credit. I really love the funky look of the old buttons on the striped paper. And of course, I like the autumn colors.

stamps: warm words (SU), just leaves (Jeanne Streiff Collection - Rubbernecker)
ink: old olive, night of navy
paper: bravo burgundy, old olive, night of navy, ruby red, chocolate chip, more mustard, really rust, shimmery white, dp (Provo Craft - The Den - bitty scrap pad)
other: water mister, 1" and 1-3/8" circle punches, old buttons, black crochet cotton, needle, dimensional foam tape

Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance at some Melody Mints.

Now, I'm off to make some lunch and then some more creating. Thanks for stopping by.
