Another project I wanted to try on our stamping weekend was our team colour challenge. I hadn’t had a chance to make it before the weekend. To be honest I haven’t had a chance to join in another one since. That’s OK right?? 🙂 Anyway, to the colour challenge. The colours were Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Tip Top Taupe. What do you make of those colours?? They are really hard to work with I have to say. My immediate thoughts were a masculine card. When I thought about it too I realised that those colours can be found in the ‘Cherry on Top’ Paper Stack. Could I incorporate the papers someway??
I needed to make a card for one of my Great Nephews and chose the set ‘Boys Will Be Boys’. I then found the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #207 that I had pinned on Pinterest so I thought that would work well with this set. That’s what I thought but I will say it did take some working and it nearly ended up being scrapped all together. 🙂
Here is the sketch and then the finished card. I just realised that I have lost a black rhinestone too!
The paper is from the ‘Cherry on Top’ stack. I stamped the images on White card and then again on white card and cut parts of them out. You can see a close-up here. I had done a little watercolouring to blur the lines a little.
I still thought it was plain so I looped around some Silver Thread which you can see in the photo of the full card. Then I coloured some Rhinestones with a black Sharpie and added them onto the Cucumber Crush paper. Job done – That was it!!!! Do you like it???
Thanks for visiting. I hope where ever you are in the world that your day is awesome.
See you again soon,
