Kristina Werner's Colour Challenge #55 & Mojo Monday week 91

Well, I was too late to play along with Mojo Monday's challenge this week, but I still used their sketch for Kristina's Colour Challenge this week. I have discovered that if I draw a blank on a project, if I have a sketch and/or colour challenge to work with, I can surprise myself!

Here's the Mojo Monday Sketch:


And here are the colours for Kristina's challenge this week:
Basic Gray, Really Rust, More Mustard and Very Vanilla. A Challenge indeed!

Here's what I've done:


I used a retired DSP in More Mustard (the only one I had with any of the Challenge colours!), and inked up this pretty stamp form Only Ovals for the first time (I'm ashamed to say!). I stamped it three times (in each colour) then cut out all the relevant bits to make the multicoloured image - I'm pleased with the way it turned out! I popped the main image panel up on Dimensionals and also pierced two lines as a border around it.

Ingredients: Stamps: Trendy Trees (sentiment on the bottom of the card), Only Ovals
Paper: East Coast Prep DSP (retired), textured Really Rust, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray
Ink: Basic Gray, Really Rust, More Mustard,
Other: Very Vanilla ribbon, Build - a - Brad, small and large oval punches, paper snips, dimensionals, Mat Pack, paper Piercer.


Close up to see the pierced frame and the main image.

The cute build-a-brad using the rose image!

Hi, Louise! Your card(s) are lovely and elegant: great work! It's always amazing to do more than one challenge per card, but when it works, it works! Awesome job!

Stamping your focal point three times and cutting it out just gave it a great custom effect! Speaking of custom...love that brad. :> And of course, way to go for making two cards with the supplies for one! :>
