MIM #120

Monday is time to create at PapertreyInk!
Heather Nichols shows us how to overlap colors in her tutorial on 'Overlapping Ombre'.
Next week is Father's Day, so adding to the stash for the
father's in our family.
My father and husband were builders, and one of our son's inherited the gene.
He creates the most amazing things from wood!
Our favorite saying is, "measure twice, cut once." Had to throw that one in!
Embossed the saw and screwdriver in gold and silver. The screw joining the circle of saws is a brad.
There's a dot at the base of the saw that makes for perfect alignment as you're stamping the image.
All Papertrey inks and papers.
Inks: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Canyon Clay and Terracotta Tile.
Papers: Orange Zest cardstock, Stampers Select White, Dark Chocolate and Lemon Tart
Around the sentiment I stamped a tiny bolt cut from the strip of border bolts included with the set.
It's OK to do that (according to one of the designers), besides, there's plenty left on the strip!

  14. Your card is awesome again Nancy! I love the way you embossed the saw and how the ombre effect creates some movement in your card. Great job!! (here in the Netherlands we say 'meten is weten' which means 'measuring is knowing' - but it sounds better in dutch ;-)
