…is the colour I started out with, but somehow ended up working with the colours below. These are not colours that I usually work with, but I think, just maybe, have pulled it off!
I also sat down to make the card for tomorrow’s class, along with a technique to go with it, but as usual I got a bit side tracked when I went looking for a layout.
While looking, I come across this great sketch form Sketch Frenzy Friday, had the stamp set out on my desk which I was going to use for another challenge & started on this card. It is so easy for me to become side tracked, especially when playing with colours, sketches & of course our wonderful stamps, etc.
Base Card – Basic Black – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm when scored in half
Layer 1 – Tempting Turquoise – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Basic Black – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Tempting Turquoise – 4 5/8″ x 2 5/8″ or 11.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ or 11cm x 6cm
Layer 5 – Basic Black – 7/8″ x 2 5/8″ or 2.2cm x 6.5cm
Layer 6 – Whisper White – 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ or 1.9cm x 6cm
Wow, I didn’t realise there were that many layers until I measured them all up!
Using my good ol’ faithful Embossing Folder – Square Lattice, I run it through the Bigshot, adhered to the Tempting Turquoise Cardstock & then to the Base Card – Basic Black.
I stamped my image onto Whisper White using Tempting Turquoise Ink, stamped a couple of flowers onto the Whisper White using Basic Black Ink & adhered to Tempting Turquoise Cardstock. I adhered this to the embossed piece of Basic Black using SU Dimensionals, as I didn’t want this piece to get lost in the embossing & the black.
I stamped my sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Black Ink, stamped another flower with Tempting Turquoise Ink beside the sentiment & adhered to the Tempting Turquoise piece. This whole piece was adhered off centre to the middle piece. Using the reverse ink colours gives it a little more of an interesting effect!
I adhered Basic Pearls to the centre of the Basic Black flowers, which I coloured a Basic Rhinestone with a permanent black marker & stuck it to the centre of the Tempting Turquoise flower.
For the inside, I reversed the inks again, while stamping onto Whisper White Cardstock, adhered to Tempting Turquoise & then to the base card.
