Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything!

Color Throwdown 100

Well, I did it! I came out of lurk mode long enough to do an online challenge!! I chose the Color Throwdown site to get my feet wet. YAY me! Congrats, ladies, on a FaBuLoUs site. 

I like the way this card turned out, but BOY HOWDY was it labor-intensive. the whole thing is layered and very 3-D cuz I used so many dang pop dots! The right edge of the floral paper is hand-cut and matted 3 times. Insane. I actually pulled out some REALLY old supplies (decorative scissors, stencils and my Magic Matter) to create this. Can you tell I was cleaning my studio and found stuff still packed in a box?  hahahaha. The sentiment block and patterned paper are hand-pierced and then stippled with ink. This patterned paper was PERFECT for the challenge. It's a combo of paper from Paper Studio and SEI. This sure was FUN!!! Thanks ladies!
