another embellish entry

i don't know what's up with me making double entries for some challenges, but this idea just came to me, and i had to make it! it's for the embellish magazine challenge - background stamping and color challenge. here's a reminder of the colors:

and here's my cute little card!

i used the versamark watermark stamp pad to create the background design. and then i stamped the 'socks' out onto yellow patterned paper and then embellished them with my white pen and black pen. the socks and the sentiment are also popped (of course!), and i wanted the socks to look like they were on some kind of clothes line (held up with some gray brads).

the bottom of the card is some black satin ribbon, and then i used my hero arts tiny litters to create the sentiment. oh, and duh, the 'socks' are actually the stockings from the cozy christmas stamp set from lawn fawn.

here was the thinking behind my card: with all the different socks in the 'watermarked' background, this perfect pair found each other and are in love - even though they don't match. and then i used uppercase and lowercase lettes for the sentiment to emulate that same message! because well, sometimes love is quirky! :)
