Good morning and Happy Saturday! I'm so happy you stopped by this morning to view my sample for this week's color challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our hostess, Wendy Jensen, has a wonderful color palette for you to work with this week.
When I first saw this color combo, I was pretty doubtful, but plunged in and I'm really happy with the results. It's nice to work with something out of the mainstream once in awhile and I had a lot of fun making this card. I took a sneek peek at the other designers samples this week and they are all really fabulous.
For my card, I made the bottom panel, which looks very much like gingham, using a crimper. I ran a panel of So Saffron through the crimper. Then I sponged all the high points with Old Olive. Then I ran it through the crimper again in the opposite direction and again hit the high points with Old Olive. I don't have Early Expresso so I stamped the flourish and the text on the panels with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The splatters were made by mixing water, one dropperful of Vintage Photo distress ink and a small scoop of Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls, my new fav embellie. Shake and spray. The flowers were made by stamping the flowers from Best Blossoms with So Saffron and Cherry Cobbler, trimming them out and coating hem with Tim Holtz Crackle Accents.
Products Used: SU Script background stamp, Best Blossoms and Elements of Style. The text stamp on the heart was won in a blog candy and has no manufacturer's marking whatsoever. Ink: Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Old Olive
Accessories: Lace from Jo-Ann's, Bead Caps from eBay, Flourish is a BossCuts die
