This week, Keesh has challenged us all with a great colour challenge at the Inkspirations Challenge Blog. Now at first glance you may think this is a perfect combo for a holiday card and you would not be mistaken but because that was obvious, I wanted to do something non-holiday. You know me, anything I can do to make my life more creatively challenged! Here are the colours for the challenge this week:
I started with a Whisper White card base and despite my intense need to either stamp or texture it, I decided to leave it clean and simple.
Next, I added a horizontal layer of Real Red which was textured with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. On the bottom and a bit in behind this, I added a strip from the Celebrations Quick Accents pack.
For the image piece, I first started with an Old Olive piece and then layered with a Crumb Cake layer which I stamped the A to Z stamp on with Crumb Cake ink.
A 1 3/4″ circle of Real Red was adhered next and then the little ewe which is from the stamp set Pun Fun. I stamped it on some watercolour paper and coloured it in, cut it out and adhered with a dimensional or two. I also added Crystal Effects to the heart but I don’t think you can really see that in the photo.
After adding a Crumb Cake button with a little bit of cardstock to act as thread, I added a Medium Jewelry Tag with “thank ewe” stamped on it and looped onto the top of the A to Z piece with a bit of cardstock and some linen thread.
Hope you like it and I hope you’ll join us at the Inkspirations Challenge Blog this week. Check out what my fellow Design Team members have been up to this week too by checking out their links below.
