A Little "Off"

Today's card uses the technique called Dye Whitewash from the August 2013 issue.  I had a couple of friends over for a Friday stamp day and we decided to give this technique a try.  I really love the subtle color that it gives to the image.  While playing with the technique, we used my friend's white detail embossing powder.

Tonight as I finished the card up with a sentiment, I grabbed my white detail embossing powder.  Who knew that White Detail embossing powder would have different whites.  Sheesh!  Mine is more "Off" white than real white.  So.....what was I to sentiment was Off White and the image was White.....       So, I decided to make the card base and the butterflies in off white as well so that it didn't look like a mistake.  It worked out fairly well, making the image popping more from the card.

I hope that you like!   The image is from Stampendous and the words are from Stampin Up...I think!

Mustang Parade and a Sale may have been wondering where all my posting has gone.  Well........the volunteer job with our car club for a major event has me busy EVERY day doing something on it.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang, we are trying to set a Guinness World Record with the most Mustangs (and/or Fords) in a parade.  The event is on April 12, 2014 at the Woodburn, OR Dragstrip.    We only have about 1/3 of the needed registrations right now and I am reaching out to you, my readers, to help me spread the word. 

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!  I isn't card related.....but I could still use your help!!  Could you do a little mini post on your own blogs to let your Pacific Northwest readers know about the event?  I would love you forever if you could do that!  I know that many of you have readers from all over the nation (and world) so if the message reaches a few in my area it would benefit the event greatly!!  Ask them to forward on as well!

Here is the website for our event:    We also have a Facebook page:  Mustang 50th Anniversary Parade

You can register online at the website OR it has the registration form to print out for those who want to print, pay and mail.   We want all Ford models!  Any year, any condition. 


Let me know in the comments that you have posted so I can thank you!
