Hemingway

Happy Friday! Yowsers...blogging 4 days in a row? I think that's a record for me. LOL! Thanks for your support and for the well-wishes for my son. He was fine by tonight--no pink eye in sight (lame pun intended).

Today Print Candee is having our monthly blog hop. I'm so lucky to work with such talented ladies:
(Me)

This month, we're making projects based on a profile and colors from Design Seeds:


Here's what I came up with:

Even Hemingway...

Now that I look at the inspiration photo, I realize my colors aren't the same. Oops! 

I used a bunch of Print Candee products to make this card. I started with a yellow base in Photoshop and then added the Pastel Bokeh overlay to look like water droplets. Then, I stamped away--the typewriter, the postage cancellation mark (above the typewriter) and even the dark orange brush marks are digital brushes from Print Candee. 

Finally, I made my own sentiment for my brother--he's an English professor and his area is modern American literature (he's not a super huge Hemingway fan, but I figured he would appreciate the humor). 

 Next up in the hop is the super fab Marion. Thanks for looking!



Supplies
Digital Stamps: (Photoshop Brush Typewriters) Adrienne Looman Designs; (Postage Photoshop Brushes) Pink Pueblo; (Photoshop Brush Corner Grunge) Adrienne Looman Designs
Digital Overlay: (Pastel Bokeh) Sonya DeHart Designs
Cardstock: (Sweet Tooth) Stamp School
Specialty Paper: (premium matte photo paper) Staples
Distress Inks: (Warm Lipstick, Tea Dye, Antique Linen) Ranger
