Lone Wolf

Hello! Here is that card I promised. Better late than never. I'm still getting used to this new computer. Yesterday I spent the whole day, first installing Photoshop, then getting used to the new version, which has changed significantly from the older version I was using.

I used the wolf from my new stamp set, Mountain Wilderness, along with the grass from Hang In There. First I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock to 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches. Then I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink lightly over the top half of the card stock.

I created a mask using the 2nd smallest circle from the large Classic Circles Nestabilities set. I placed it on my background and then sponged more Memento Cantaloupe ink.

 Next I sponged Memento Tangelo ink. I was using my small daubers to get a more splotchy look.

 Sponged Memento Rose Bud ink. I accidentally made a crease at the bottom of the paper, but I didn't start over since I planned to do some stamping over that spot.

 Sponged Memento Lady Bug ink. I switched to the Jumbo Sponge Daubers at this point to make the bottom more uniform looking.

 Then I sponged Memento Rhubarb Stalk.

 I stamped the silhouette wolf image using Stazon Jet Black ink.

 I used torn sticky notes to mask the wolf and then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa.

I removed the mask and then stamped the grass several times using Stazon Jet Black ink.

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx. The sentiment was stamped on vellum and then torn. The card base is 5 by 4 1/4 inches. I used my Scor-Pal to score decorative lines.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!

You've really got me hooked on this look. I literally just left an online site where I was trying to decide on what Memento colors to order & trying to remember which 10 you said were your go-to's. Beautiful work. Please keep them coming!
