Today's card is for two challenges - the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS and the latest challenge for my blog group. Today's featured stamper is Sandra MacLean (B-gin-r on SCS)- I've been following her blog for some time now, and she has some fantastic work!! My blog group (please check out their blogs - the links can be found on the left side of the page) holds challenges as well. Our latest challenge is hosted by Amy and requires you to use a 3-color combo that you normally don't use.
So....I CASE'd this card of Sandra's. I loved the simple layout and the pierced sponged layer behind the main image.
Here's what I changed:
- Designer paper
- Scale of card
- Brads instead of dew drops
For the Ocean's 11 blog group challenge, I used Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, and a blue similar to Tempting Turquoise (with my brads & Copic color). I typically don't pair these colors together - the DCWV paper (Spring matstack) really helped!! Not sure if I'd pair all three together again, but I definitely would pair Certainly Celery and Ruby Red - love the look!!
Also, in case you're wondering (and even if you're not :) )...I printed the sentiment on the dp. I've been wanting to try this for awhile, especially with some digi images. All I did was tape the dp onto regular printer paper and then send it through the printer. It worked like a charm!! I'll definitely be trying this with some of my digital images soon!!
