Live, Laugh & Love
Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!
Today's card share covers two different challenges. First up is Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 22. The second one being the layout I used from Clean & Simple Stamping Blog, Fall to Layout 83.
The color challenge this week is Real Red, Pink Passion, Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White and Basic Black........wowzers, that combo is a bit frightening!!!!
I knew from looking at the sketch that I wanted the main focal to be my sentiment, So I went looking through my stamps to find one that would work. I came upon this one from the "On Your Birthday" Stamp set. I inked up part of the stamp with real red ink and then used my black marker to ink the bottom half of the stamp. I stamped that on whisper white and matted it with basic black that had one edge punched with the pinking heart border punch.
The base is white and then I followed that with basic black and then some real red that I had used the swiss dot embossing folder on. The sentiment was added to the base with some foam tape. The balloons come from the "Crazy for Cupcakes" Stamp set. I stamped them onto the yo yo yellow and pink passion card stock. I cut them out and mounted them to the card with dimensionals. There is two layers on each balloon. I used my white gel pen to add a highlight to each balloon.
So in the end I really don't mind this color combo, it is not as scary as I first thought.
Well, that is all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
