Be prepared - this may be a long post.
As there was nothing of interest on TV last night I sat down and made two cards. I checked out the various challenge sights and found that over at Stamping 411
they had two challenges. The next dilemma was the colour combination - in step JAI
and Color Throw Down
. They worked perfectly with the sketches. So here's my first combination:
and my card:
I've used another of the retiring stamp sets - Choo Choo and the coordinating roller - Right on Track. I love how the smoke from the engine gets lighter as it goes higher. I was really pleased with how these two challenges came together.
Stamps - Choo Choo, Right on Track, Loads of Love Accessories, Good Neighbour, Happy Moments
Card Stock - Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Whisper White
Ink - Cajun Craze, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso
Markers - Cajun Craze, Bashful Blue
Other - Bashful Blue Ribbon, Small Oval, Dimensionals
And here's the second combination:
and my card:As soon as I saw this layout I knew straight away which stamp set to use - again another retiring set Tart & Tangy. I have also used some retired DSP - Summer Picnic. The colour combination worked perfectly with this stamp set. I used my markers to colour in the images as it is way easier when you want multipe colours on the one image. I swapped Kiwi Kiss with Old Olive. Again another card I am pleased with.
Stamps - Tart & Tangy, Punch Bunch
Card Stock - Early Espresso, Whisper White
Markers - Early Espresso, Rose Red, Barely Banana, Old Olive
Other - Summer Picnic DSP, Dimensionals
