Fill Your Boots

Ah, it was a comedy of errors with my card today.  Have you ever had something in mind when you started and ended up with something completely different?  That's what happened to me here.  I knew what image I wanted to use - Deedee's Digis "Happy Trails" set - and I knew I wanted to use kraft for a main color.  Everything was going along just fine - I cut my image out using a Spellbinders Nestie....had the pieces/parts of paper cut...and then I thought "hey - why not go over the image with a very light tan ink to sort of distress it".  So I did....and then I realized that my idea of "light tan" turned out to be more of the kraft color so my layer piece blended right into the image piece!  Fortunately I had a extra white one cut out from another time and that worked. Of course then what do I do about coloring the image....so I used some blue ink and a darker "tan" to sort of just go over the seams.  The stash came in real handy on this card too - I had this wood "flag" that I never knew what to do with - and the "counting the ways" sticker fit perfectly on it!  Here's the final project:

What a fun card Zella and yes, I have started out making a card with an idea and it's completely different when I'm finished. Oh well, I guess that's why it's called creativity.
