A Challenging Thank You








Wow! This card was a challenge for me to say the least! Two challenges this time! I was following along with Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #55 and Kerin over at Stamps, Paper, Glitter's Sketch Challenge #18. The sketch was fun, but the colors were a challenge!


I used the stamp set called Illuminations and the wheel called Illuminated. I used vellum, very vanilla, really rust, more mustard, and basic gray card stock. I used basic gray, really rust, and more mustard classic ink. I stamped the image twice, once on to very vanilla cs and then on to vellum with basic gray ink. I mounted these two layers on to the more mustard layer with dimensionals. The mm layer was then glued on to the really rust one. I stamped the image again with really rust and then cut out the "T." I used dimensionals to add it to the main image. I ran a strip of more mustard through a Cuttlebug embossing folder called D'Vine Swirls. I then used the wheel with more mustard ink and added both strips to the card. I then added the main image and the flower designer brad.



Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

I have such a hard time with Kristina Werner's color challenges so Kudo's to you! I love how you used Kerin's sketch to complete the challenges. You did a great job. I had to blow up your card to see the vellum, that is another difficulty I have so again, Kudo's to you! TFS.
