An Experiment in Colour (MM37)


Happy Monday everyone! And today is another instalment of my Guest Designer stint on Merry Monday!

Today’s sketch is awesome and is one that can be used over and over for so many occasions.

I wanted to start this card with a non-traditional colour combination (yes, last week was non-traditional stamps and this week is non-traditional colour….you see where I’m going with this, right?).

The base is Soft Suede and I’ve layered it with a vertical layer of Primrose Petals and Bravo Burgundy. On the burgundy layer, I’ve stamped an image from the Delightful Decorations stamp set.

Next, I needed to tend to the centre area. I cut out an oval with my Big Shot and embossed it. I then added a couple of punches in coordinating colours (Designer Label and Oval) and then I stamped tone-on-tone Crumb Cake and punched out with my Ornament punch.

I added some rhinestones which I actually coloured with my Bravo Burgundy marker to tint them but it’s very hard to tell by the photo.

To finish it off, I added a bow of Linen Thread and some paper piercing with the Essentials pack.

For my sentiment, I used a strip of Crumb Cake card stock and fanned it out over the end of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for enjoying my cards this month. I hope you’ll join me next week!
