I think of all the challenges on SCS I enjoy the Featured Stamper the most. It's so fun to see who the FS will be and I love that it honors someones art. Today is SCS's Mothermark, aka Cindy Motherway. I've been a long time admirer of her work. She even sent me some images of a stamp after I drooled over her card. I have the card she sent up on my cork board, it's like a celebrity card, lol I know I'm a dork.
Ever since I saw the Oh So Lovely Hostess set in the new Catty I've been wanting to make a card with it that had some Cranberry Crisp in the leaves. My Blueberry bushes have these beautiful green and red combos I love to admire. Now I just need the berries to turn blue!
I ran this BG though my Cuttlebug and smeared Versa ink over trying to only get the dry embossed areas. This was a challenge.
The image is colored with ink picked up with my blender pen. I covered the berries in Bashful Blue and then highlighted with the Bayou Blue to get the darker tone.
