|Color Throwdown #108|
I've got something a little different for you today. This is another one of my "new" stamps from the estate sale. I have no idea what the symbol means, but the famous quote is by Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu. This is a fairly large image so I made the card 5-1/4" square to accomodate it. If you're wondering, this is a wood block stamp by Comotion Rubber Stamps, Tuscon, AZ. I may never use it again, but I wanted to make at least one card with it.
I used the Color Throwdown trio of colors for my card. The base is chocolate chip, layered with so saffron and crumbcake (kraft). It was a challenge to get a good photo tonight as the lighting seemed to distort the yellow. You'll have to visualize the so saffron! : )
Notice my "ribbon treatment"? I thought it needed something and a bow was too much. So, I opted for a simple loop of ribbon. Please notice the "brilliant" way in which I tore the paper and stitched over it. (That's my story and I'm sticking with it. ; )
Just a quick post tonight. Thanks so much for blogging by!

Wonderful sponging on the card and your ribbon treatment is great (giggle).
A Huge Hello from Australia Pam!
Gotta say I just LOVE your card - complete with the snazzy sewn over torn bit! lol I reckon it looks awesome!
I just love that colour combo to - might have to give that one a go!
I love this sentiment. Cool ribbon treatment and the "torn" look is so clever! Ü
Can you share some more pictures of the stamps you purchased at the estate sale? I'd love to see the really unique ones . . . I'm so curious . . . I love to find great sales with my favorite things in them!
Love your stamping - you're my favorite online stamper/blogger. I even asked Santa for a sewing machine last Christmas so I could emulate your sewing techniques!
I adore this quote, Pam. I wrote it down so I don't forget it. Beautiful card. I need to go back to find out about the estate sale. Sorry I haven't been blog visiting much lately.
