Red,Yellow,Orange Challenge plus A Challenging Dishwasher

Over at Gingersnap Creations there is a challenge to use red, yellow and orange together. I pulled out the Kromecoat paper, red and orange alcohol inks and a background stamp. After stamping with the inks, I used yellow liquid watercolor and went over the background with that. Then I attached a photo printed on linen, a strip of torn vintage music sheet, some fabric leaves and a rose I made from some gorgeous multi colored ribbon. Distress inks and Sakura pens were used also.

The dishwasher won't drain again. My poor hubby is doing his best to figure out the problem and is off to the hardware store at the moment. Seems like Saturday plans all went up in a poof of smoke, or in this case, they were drowned in the water on the floor!

Update at 7:33 PM- the dishwasher seems to be fixed and we are exhausted, but happy it's draining properly. At least for the moment!! :)


  1. I am laughing!
    I wish I had a dollar for everyone who has commented or written me about not putting the dishes in the dishwasher!!!
    I Had to - I mean, REALLY HAD TO! They were . . . beyond gross. I had to make sure they were de-bugged and de-egged and de-YUCKED! Not an option.
    But I won't ever do it again - I promise! :)
    Thanks for the advice!!!!
    Hugs! Karen

  2. ah the joys of dishwashers. I had this problem twice. the first time I called someone out, but I watched him so I would now what to do. you have to take the pipe system off the side and clean it out with a wire. then tip the washer up to drain it out. I now use one of the diswasher cleaners once a month, that seems to help.

    anyway onto more important things, I love the background and the flower. great card
