Just popping on to post my entry to the latest Embellish Magazine Colour Challenge while there’s still time!
The challenge was to use the colours shown above as well as incorporate background stamping. I thought I’d keep it pretty Clean And Simple this time and came up with this:
The background is the Hero Arts Cloud Background stamp stamped onto Soft Stone cardstock using Smokey Shadow ink. Adhered a big Harvest Gold button for the sun, die cut some clouds from Smokey Shadow cardstock and stamped flourishes from Embellishments on two of them with Versamark before adhering at varying depths with Pinflair.
Added the sentiment from Scattered Showers Additions, added a piece of True Black cardstock die cut with the Eyelet Lace Border die before adhering to a Stamper’s Select White card base. Voila!
Well I’ve got to run – got a ton of new sets to try and give some love/ink to! I’d love to know what you think of this card, and thanks for stopping by!
