Mono Suede

So I've had this card rolling around in the back of my mind for a few days. I finally sat down to do it. I originally wanted to stamp the stamped image in bleach, but when I went to get the bleach out, it was empty- who keeps an empty bleach bottle around the house anyway? I think I do remember having bleach on the shopping list months ago, but must have skipped over it while shopping. It is now on the list again. Anyway.. so I settled for white ink. It worked just fine. The white probably was a better choice anyway because it matched the white poka dots on the ribbon. I did a little sponging in soft suede and distressing with my distressing tool. Tied a bow, put on a few brads and done! I showed it to Seirra and she said it was funny. She didn't like it. She didn't like the brown. Funny girl. It didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it in my head, but I think it looks nice. I chose not to put a sentiment on it, mainly because I didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted it to say. I can just write it on the inside. This card will be going in the mail for someone special. :)
stamp: pocket silhouettes
paper: soft suede
ink: whisper white, soft suede

  1. I should be your someone special. I love this card! Brown is one of my favorite colors.

  2. Sorry Lena, but there is a special man out there needing some encouragment, love and support. Brown is a manly color - hence the brown card. I love brown too.
