Today's color challenge colors are: So Saffron, Soft Suede, and Baja Breeze with a dessert of text. Not sure my masked off word counts as text, but that's the best I can do! I started by die cutting the Joy with a post it note and used the reverse to paint my masking fluid word. I used Heather Telford's great tutorial on Masking Fluid Resist for my technique. Instead of using multiple colors, I used stamped off colors for my lighter layers. I used the pine branch image in Saffron and Suede, and the small snowflakes in Baja. Other than my dissatisfaction with the edges of my letters on the joy, I'm excited by how the technique turned out. I crumpled some Baja Seam Binding and used a Crumb Cake button that I sponged with some Suede. I also sponged the corners of my Suede card base.
Sorry for the picture quality....my battery died and I had to go with what I had!

This card is just fabulous. I think it is the nicest and most original card I have seen in a while. Going right into my favorites! I love the subtle suede and saffron pines and the joy is just perfect. A truly lovely card!!! Thanks so much for sharing how you did this. It is wonderful.

Obviously a lot of work and it shows....I love this. I know it's disappointing when something doesn't come out like the picture in your mind....but your 'Joy' came out perfectly....look at it again in a few days and you'll see what we're seeing. TFS!
