Sit on Down (Inkspirations #86)


This week at Inkspirations, there is a great colour challenge to play along with!

At first, I was going to go with a holiday card but thought I’d challenge myself to do a little something different this time!


The base for my card is Marina Mist. It is stamped with Woodgrain and then up the centre with Extreme Elements.


In the centre, there is a panel of Real Red. If you look closely, there is an embossed frame in the upper portion. I wanted to do something with this layer but not too much, you know?


For the Old Olive strip, I stamped it with the manifest stamp from The Open Sea. OH SNAP! Did you hear? You can still order that AMAZING stamp set from the Summer Mini until the end of 2012! Yippee!

For the chair part, I used one of the adorable seats from Have a Seat and stamped it on Marina Mist. I cut it out, sponged the bottom with a little bit of Real Red and adhered with dimensionals to a Whisper White Decorative Label punch (which is sponged with Old Olive).


A little Old Olive 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, a Whisper White button with Real Red cardstock “tie” and a sentiment from Delightful Dozen finishes this card off.


Check out what the rest of the design team at Inkspirations has come up with and then play along with us!
