Luckily, I quickly realized my error and "un-linked" from the CAS - Colours and Sketches challenge : ) I went back to my desk and put the Summer Starfruit ink pad back in it's spot in my colour caddy. Just for the fun of it, pulled Crushed Curry down and set it beside the two purples. Then I went to bed, because it really was late and my brain was not ready to start another project.
Today, again, the colours "spoke" to me. So this evening I gave it another go, this time with the sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday. I have to say, while I like Summer Starfruit with these two purples, Crushed Curry really does make it "pop" more.....
The twist this week...use stripes and squares.
Fun....and totally different than yesterday! I really like how this card could be adapted to masculine or feminine. Firstly, one could really use any combination of colours and it would still work. Secondly, while I used the flowers from "Banner Blast", there are also little stars and hearts in that stamp set that could be easily substituted in.
I reached way back into my big stash of DSP (I have a problem using DSP....) and found some "old" Perfect Plum DSP from a stack of "Subtles" I bought about 4 years ago and haven't used up yet. I like how the DSP adds texture to the card without having to use a Big Shot or Texture Boutique machine.
Here are all the supplies you'll need to make this card:
Stamps: "Banner Blast" (Sale-a-bration 2014), Remembering Your Birthday
Ink and Paper: Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Crushed Curry
Other: White Baker's Twine, 1/2" circle punch, Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
Thanks for reading! Happy Stamping!
