Ways to Use it Challenge WT338 & More!

If you've just arrived from Hannah's wonderful blog, then you are in the right place! This month, over at SplitcoastStampers' Ways to Use it Challenge, we're using the Back to School Theme. Michelle challenged us this week by asking us to use PAINT.

Not only is this a NEW Ways to Use It challenge week - IT'S A BLOG HOP as well!!!! All of our Ways to Use It hostesses have a made a card with their challenge in mind. My turn at the challenge isn't until September 29th, but if you can guess what the subject of my challenge is from looking at the below card, your card will be featured in the challenge post for that week. If correct, you will be contacted as to the subject matter the week before the challenge so you, too, can create a card using that theme. In order to be eligible, you'll need to be the first person who guesses right by commenting here in my post.

I embossed a piece of kraft/crumb cake cardstock and then painted over the raised surfaces rather sloppily to simulate leather using some acrylic shimmery brown paint.  My sentiment was inspired by a class I recently took for watercoloring.  While the card doesn't include any watercoloring, I was inspired by the saying from the class.

Now, your next and last stop on this blog hop is Lydia's Understand Blue - our guest star for this round.
Hope you enjoy - looking forward to seeing what your guesses are.
Thanks for stopping by!
