Be Inspired :: 26

It's Wednesday, and time for another Be Inspired Challenge. This time, I was really inspired, but that does not mean I produced the best result! I was inspired to use a transparency on a card because of the glass jars in the photo. I wanted to emboss on the transparency to see how that worked. It did not melt the transparency as I thought it might, but it did not 'clean' well, which meant it leftovers. You can see that in the photo. After the project was done, I realized I could have embossed the navy cardstock to get the same look. Duh! But, then I would not have tried a new technique. I think I'll use rub-ons on transparencies from here on! HA! This card reminds me of a sailor/beach card! In the photo, I thought the dark color in the pillows was navy. But, is it black? I'm not color blind (usually), but this color interpretation became quite a challenge. I went for navy because it looked like it to me!
