To Close Too Home!

 

My inspiration for this card was, a one heck of a storm that we had here in Missouri on Sunday. The clouds outside my studio were many different shades of swirling blues, greys and black. Yes I said swirling. We did have a confirmed tornado touch down less than a mile away.

I ran the base of the card through my Big Shot using the Postal embossing folder for texture. Then I rubbed Faded Jeans Distress Stain all over the background, varying the pressure to get the light and dark shades of the blue. The entire background is then spritzed with Perfect Pearl Mist and the outer edge is rubbed with Walnut Stain Distress ink. I love to use silhouettes of images, so the Umbrella Man worked perfect for this card. I punched him out of chipboard and painted him with Semi-Gloss Black paint.
