Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13

Wow, I am so tired. I rarely talk about work here on my blog (which is weird because I really love where I work and the people I work with), but I work behind a desk! Today, part of our marketing department took a trip out to one of our Lifeway Christian Store to help with a remodel. It is a great learning experience, but my feet are now throbbing. I just can't do 11 hours on my feet anymore! So once I got home tonight, I was all about crafting without trying to leave my chair! :)

So tonight, I just decided to start coloring while I was talking to my friend Mary Anna. I didn't use any of the pieces I colored but it gave me a great idea for the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. Here were the colors:
First of all, please excuse the sticker shine. It looks 100% clear in real life. I really love all the texture this has with the felt and dry embossing.
Here's what I used:

Stamps - Spring Solitude (SU)
Paper- Certainly Celery (SU), White (PTI), Berry (PTI)
Ink - White Craft
White felt and thread. So I didn't have any red thread, so I improvised. Any guesses on what I did to my white thread?


Yep, those Copic markers come in so handy. It dyed that section so fast.
I'm off to read Harry Potter! I'm trying to reread the 6th book before I see the movie on IMAX on Saturday!

What fun, Courtney! I struggled with the shine from rub ons when I was photographing my card. Hope your feet feel better. Cold soaks and mint lotions always helped mine back in the day (actually, still does). :>
