This was a challenge for me only because I just got back from a wonderful vacation Monday night and work has been uber busy already! I am hiring a new staff member, and have been doing interviews...I have a tough decision to make! So, my stampin' mojo was slow in coming!! I started with some fabulous DSP from the Paisley Petals pack that features baja breeze, not quite navy and river rock...so that is where the color palette originated. BUT as I went along, I didn't like the pattern with the rest of my design! LOL! All of you stampers know how a card design evolves over time, right? So here is what I actually did use: River rock for my card base, then some whisper white which I ran through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder. I then sponged it with river rock, baja breeze and not quite navy classic ink. My image (on whisper white oval with the Ovals die) is from the NEW Simply Soft 2-step stamp set. (LOTS of great new stamps in the brand-spankin' new Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog!) I stamped first in stazon black, then used baja breeze for the petals. I added some detail with my river rock and NQN markers, then crumbled it up. After I "unwrappd it" I sponged with the new pool party ink and river rock. It was "too neat" so I tore the edges, (Aha! That's why it's not an oval any more!) but layered it on a NQN oval. I added baja breeze seam binding and antique brads. If I did it again, I'd only use one brad, I think! My sentiment is from Three Little Words, paired up with my dynamic duo: modern label and word window punches. This is a FAT card...lots of dimensionals. I love fat cards! LOL!!
My fingers are now sufficiently inky...first time in 2 weeks. Ahhhhhhhhhhh...good to be home!!
I hope you play along! Just use keyword FM14 in your online gallery!
