Kris has set the challenge for this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations with the only stipulation we use Marina Mist. Now, this is a beautiful colour, one that I do not use very often, and one I find it very hard to work with! I don’t know why, but all the creations I’ve seen that have Marina Mist in them are just lovely.
To help me with my sample, I went straight to my Colour Coach – fantastic SU Tool & one I would not be able to survive without!
Base Card – Crajun Craze – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – once scored in half
Layer 1 – Crumb Cake – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/7″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
I run the Whisper White through the Bigshot using the Embossing Folder – Petals a Plenty ensuring that I only emboss half the card. Using Old Olive Ink, I stamped my images over the top half of Whisper White – the part not embossed. I then coloured the images using my SU Markers of Bashful Blue first & then Marina Mist. I wan’t too worried about going out of the lines or how rough I coloured the images, as I think this set calls for colouring to be random. I stamped a image onto a scrap of Whisper White, coloured it in & cut around the image to adhere to the card once completed.
The Whisper White piece was adhered to the piece of Crumb Cake. A piece of Taffeta 1/8″ Ribbon was adhered across the centre & to the back of Crumb Cake. This piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Cajun Craze.
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White using Marina Mist, punched it using the Window Word Punch & adhered to a piece of Cajun Craze which had been punched using the Modern Label Punch. I adhered this to the bottom RHS of the card. The cut out image was then adhered to the card & over another stamped image using SU Dimensionals. To finidh the card & to give it a little bit of a lift, I applied Rhinestones to the centres of the flowers.
