SC247 Thanks!

Happy Friday everyone!!!! OK so 2 days later and I finally finished "touching up" my coloring on this card. The bench really gave me a problem, still not crazy about it but I do love this image.

This was Wednesday sketch challenge and the color combo of Bravo Burgandy and Kraft from Stampin Up just poped in my head late yesterday afternoon and I just fel that it was the earthy look I wanted with this image. The stamp set is the delightful Side By Side from There She Goes. I embossed the long panel with my CB Distressed folder and because the image panel was larger than the sketch dimension I left the middle layer plain and just added some dots with my Burgandy Copic and sponged the edges around the image.
The entire image was colored in Copics and Shin Han Markers....I just got 5 new colors in the Shin Hans and I'm having a blast with them!! Also, hard to see, but for the bucket I used a touch of Glossy Effects so that it look liked water in the bucket.

I must just share a quick story about this card as it made me and Jodi laugh very hard this morning. I always show my husband my final products and he alsways enjoys them but he has one times he does not get the connection between the sentiment and the image. So when I showed him this this morning he said " Its very nice but Babe I just don't get it, are you sending this to someone to thank them for churning butter?" hahaha I though that was so funny!! Hope you get a laugh from it too and have a great night!!
