So, here is my take on Greg’s challenge this week. Not only did I try hard to follow the rules (use the following colours: Soft Sky, More Mustard, Certainly Celery) but also the sketch (although I did turn it on it’s side). I don’t think he’ll mind, he’s got a soft spot for me…..
I also tried to make it a little harder on myself and not use a floral set – OUCH! That was a hard one. And, of course, I had to try for the bonus points by using some paper piercing and brads.
The card base is Certainly Celery and it is layered with a piece of More Mustard which was stamped with my Itty Bitty Backgrounds and then direct to paper edged. BONUS: the thick black strip is paper pierced double down both sides.
The focal point is first layered onto Soft Sky, then Basic Black. Now, my tendancy would be to put a white layer and then watercolour an image but I resisted! I pulled out my More Mustard Craft pad and stamped an image from Big Pieces. Partly, I used this set because I like it but also cause Greg does. Then I pulled out my Big Deal Alphabet and stamped “hi” using celery and sky ink. BONUS – I used a rhinestone brad to dot the “i”.
I added a little doodling on the Soft Sky background piece and topped it off with “friend” from Amazing to Zany stamped onto a mustard tab.
If you haven’t tried one of Greg’s challenges, you TOTALLY should. They are great and inspiring.
