A Shining Example

I fell in love with Julee's (Vervegirl) card and just had to CASE it.  I need inspiration like hers to get me out of my box..  The Verve challenge is to use ink, paint, or some other form of color.  I use Prisma pencils a lot and some embossing but it took her card to jolt me into using some white Craft ink, DTP, and embossing.   Here is her card
And here is mine - a tad bit more simple but along the same lines:

The base is Dark Kraft.  Instead of using blue paint, I did Direct to Paper with Close to Cocoa ink .
The stamp and die cut are both Verve.
 As you can see, I really can't get my head around the mixed media idea but I do like how my card came out.

Pile it On - shabby
Kraft Journal - ink, paint
PartyTime Tuesday - anything
CASual Friday - off the page
Verve - inks, paint, color
Sister Act - anything
Simon Says Stamp - anything
Word Art Wednesday - anything
