Hello Delightful friends and family!
I've entered two challenges with the card I'm sharing today.
Here is a link to the sketch by Jen Schults for Taylored Expressions #157 and the second challenge is a color challenge for Play Date Cafe #129
Dusk, Magenta & Seedlings
And here is my card:
I really struggled with the three colors, but while I was at work today I picked up a piece of "dusk" Bazzill card stock for the base. If I had waited until morning to take the photo it would probably turn out much better but I need to be to work by 9a.m. and there is no way I can get a good shot taken, cropped and get it uploaded before I need to leave the house! By the time I get home in the evening the PDC Challenge would be closed! So I apologize for the dark and shadowy picture. It is what it is!
The designer paper is called Playground by Echo Park. The pieces used for the banners needed a color enhancement so I took my Copic Marker RV17 Deep Magenta and "enhanced" away. The stamp set is Taylored Expressions "Garden Party Blooms" and I also used the coordinating die to cut the flower. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the leaves were colored with Copic G43 (Pistachio), a button and ribbon from my stash was added to embellish. I used the Spellbinder Circle Die to frame out the flower and the paper is a piece of leftover manila folder from a mini scrapbook I'm making for my great niece. The finished card is A2. Well, it is late and I already hear the hubs snoring so I'd best be getting myself tucked into my cozy bed. Have an excellent day and thanks for visiting!
