CFC63: Use lime, aqua, and navy in your CAS project.And this week's sponsor is Stop and Scrap. The winner of this week's challenge will receive a gift certificate to spend in their store:
This week's card came together pretty easily, I think because I love these challenge colors so much! And it gave me the opportunity to use some new stamps I picked up recently, and try a technique I'd never tried before. Ok, now for the paper yummies:
I recently picked up some stamps on clearance at Michael's, and was lucky enough to find both the solid image and the outline of the petal stamps I used on this card. Originally, my plan was to stamp the solid petals in lime, then stamp the outline in navy. But then I decided to try the kissing technique, which I had never tried before. As silly as it is, I've never tried it because I don't like the name. I think it's dumb. LOL! But I managed to get over it, and I'm glad I did. I inked up the solid petals with lime ink, then stamped it onto my Hero Arts Designer Wood Grain stamp. Then I stamped the wood grain-patterned petals onto white cardstock. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the outline stamp over the top of the woodgrain petals:
I tied some baker's twine on the right side of the white cardstock. I used a sentiment from the Paper Smooches Simply Said set, and I stamped it onto a strip of aqua Echo Park patterned paper, which I then adhered over the twine using dimensional adhesive:
I finished off the card with some aqua pearls by Kaisercraft:
I hope you'll play along with this week's challenge! You have until next Thursday at noon EST to do so. Thanks for looking!
