A Post – Out of Nowhere

Hello, everyone.

Just felt like posting a creation.  Just because.

Actually, we just finished organizing and carrying out a big Cub Scout event a few days ago.  Then I realized that I was stressed, overwhelmed, frustrated, and generally not doing anything that I, personally, enjoyed.  So I sat down to create.

I used Color Throwdown #347 and Freshly Made Sketches #191 for inspiration.

ToY-013-01The colors I used are just a little bit more subdued than those in the challenge photo, and the Basic Gray looks a bit black.  Nevertheless, a little bit of creative time was just what I needed.  Feeling much better now.

ToY-013-4in1Thanks for stopping by today. 😉

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Dahlia (Flourishes); Graceful Greetings (Papertrey Ink)
Paper/Cardstock:  White (Xpedx); Basic Gray (SU); Digital Paper (KHDigi on Etsy)
Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento); Smoky Slate (SU); Copic Markers
Embellishments:  Rhinestones (Recollections, Kaisercraft)
