PPA Color Challenge CASE
I made this card for the color challenge this week on the Pals Paper Arts Blog. When I saw the colors it made me think of a card by Karen Giron I saw here on her blog and also in the Stampin' Success Magazine. Her card used the kraft called for in the challenge and she had used old olive DS paper for her rolling hills, I just changed it up with some garden green and certainly celery DS paper. I used a different stamp for the sentiment and I added a bit of 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon at the bottom of the card.
I have to tell you sometimes CASEing a card is much harder than doing my own design. I struggled alot to get the hills look right. I like how the card came out and I can say that since I didn't design it......lol!
The tree is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set. I inked up the leaves with garden green ink and then used my chocolate chip marker to add the trunk and branches of the tree. I stamped the tree trunk onto the garden green DS paper and then aligned it up to the trunk of the tree that was stamped onto the kraft base. The next two layers of "hills" are mounted with dimensionals. I added the ribbon afterwards. The sentiment comes from the "Kind & Caring Thoughts" stamp set and is stamped with black stazon.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
