You got Mail!

I made this card for today's color challenge at SCS, rose red, alway artichoke, and black. Very pretty colors together I think! Here is my card:



My green in this photo, well when I am looking at it, it matches the always artichoke, but after taking the pictures, its off! LOL! I hate that when that happens, that the picture isnt a 'true' color! But anyways, had fun coloring this one. I gave the wood an aged look, because as I as coloring, I kinda got some of the black on it and thought I'd just age it to cover it up, lol. Can you see the little paths I tried to create going up to the mailboxes? and the cobweb in one of them? If it wasnt for bills that's the way my mailbox would be, full of cobwebs, haha! Even though emails are nice and convenient, it's still fun to get something in the snail mail. I need to do better myself in mailing off stuff! Ok, that's all for tonight! Thanks for stopping by tonight and hope you are having a wonderfully creative week!

Beautiful card. Love the mailboxes..I want that set even more now. LOL Your coloring is amazing. I'm with you on only showing part of a card. It's find if they show the whole card and then sections of it. You need to straighten them out.

what a fun card! never saw anyone show 'just' a bit of a card, I know some do it to show details but usually reveal the whole thing. weird

Theresa said...

Gorgeous, Cat! I haven't seen anyone show only a bit of a card unless they show the full card also, or it was a sneak peek. I like to see the whole enchilada.
