Good morning, Stamping Friends!
Today I have the other card I made this past Wednesday. Once again, I am catching up on SCS Color Challenges. This one calls for tempting turquoise, coastal cabana, and crisp cantaloupe. I have to admit, this was a tough one for me. But as I pondered and perused my stamps, I decided to go with an ocean theme. I also paired up the color challenge with this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge found HERE: As you can tell, I flipped the sketch on its side.
I gravitate toward rich regals and deeper tones, so I wasn't sure how to handle this palette. Because I needed a card for a young adult male (nephew-in-law) I thought adding the black would give it some depth and maturity. My nephew live in Florida, so I'm hoping he'll like the design!
My card base is basic black, with a layer of coastal cabana, dry embossed with the Cuttlebug "Divine Swirls" folder in my big shot, then sponged with turquoise. The polka dot paper is from a retired SU pack, "Tropical Party." My stamped images are from SU's "By the Tide," simply layered for dimension. Of course, I needed to add "Teeny Tiny Wishes" for the sentiment. Calypso Coral bakers twine finishes it off.
I am enjoying my dive back into stamping challenges! Hopefully, I will make more cards later this weekend.
