I finally managed to get back here. I don’t know where this last weekend has gone. I wanted to show you another card we did last week at our stamping get together. This one was for the sketch challenge at stamping411 here.
We added a colour challenge to it just to make it interesting!!!
The colours were REAL RED, CHERRY COBBLER, CRUMB CAKE, VERY VANILLA, WHISPER WHITE. I really wasn’t sure how I was going to put Vanilla and White together. One thing I have come to realise when there are lots of colours in a challenge is to just add a subtle touch of a colour. Otherwise, it can get a bit overwhelming. Here is the card I created.
I used the Crumb Cake for the base and the mat pieces. I ran the Cherry Cobbler card through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet folder. (Must add that to my wish list!!!). I borrowed “Priceless” set from Leonie and stamped the swirls in Crumb Cake onto Whisper White and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I stamped up 2 butterflies in Cherry Cobbler and 1 in Real Red and cut them out and raised them with mounting tape. You can’t see in the photo but I added some bling to the butterflies with the 2 way glue and Dazzling Diamonds. It makes them sparkle! 🙂
For the token Very Vanilla I used a piece of the Vanilla Neutrals DSP pack and sponged that in Crumb Cake and matted it onto a Crumb Cake piece. I used some Kraft Taffeta ribbon (now retired). The greeting is from Pocket Silhouettes and stamped in Cherry Cobbler. So, I got a touch of Vanilla and Real Red in there. It works!!!!!
I have another challenge card to show you. I will leave that till next time. Have a Happy Day 🙂
