Now, on to my project...
and be sure to read to the very end of my post...
there is more news!!

NA Frame1Noah's Ark, here in a frame I picked up at my favorite bargain store, GW Boutique.

The image and sentiment are both embossed, I thought that gave it a more finished look. It's colored with Copics and highlights with a white gel pen. The background circle layer is sponged with Ranger Distress Inks.

NA Frame Jan1 sponged layer I started by laying down sticky notes to separate the sky and water and sponged the water using Broken China and Faded Jeans. Then, using my cloud template, I sponged with Broken China. I used the edge of a scrap oval piece of cardstock to sponge off of for the rainbow using Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Shabby Shutters and Milled Lavender...I know, not all the colors of the rainbow but my circle was only so big! lol
Then I added the swirly water with a
Cuttlebug folder.

NA Frame closeup The ark is popped up on extra thick foam dimensionals. The background paper is yummy SEI Juliette First Kiss (it was so hard to use it because it has the most beautiful embossed flowers on the other side! But the plaid matched my frame perfectly...such is paper crafting...ya just gotta do it sometimes!! lol
Prism's Crabapple dark and Suede Brown light were also the perfect match!

stamps: Noah's Ark
paper: prism smooth white, crabapple dk, suede brown lt, sei juliette first kiss
ink: versamark, memento tuxedo black, ranger distress aged mahogany, broken china, faded jeans, worn lipstick, dried marigold, shabby shutters, milled lavender, vintage photo
other: clear embossing powder, copics, spellbinders circles, scallop oval, labels 8, cuttlebug embossing folders, foam dimensionals, purchased picture frame, daubers
