All About You

Welcome back!  It's Monday and time to share my sample for this week's Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  This week Mary has chosen the rich color combination of Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi and Gold.  "Dessert" is anything goes, so I chose ribbon.  I hope you'll be able to join us this week!

I use this week's sketch challenge at Global Design Project.

I was really leaning towards making a Christmas card with this week's colors but in the end, I decided to pull out my retired Blendability Markers and color a floral image.  I can tell I'm a bit out of practice - getting the change in values was a bit tricky, but overall I think they turned out pretty well.

After coloring the flowers the panel was trimmed down, then mounted on a slightly larger piece of Gold Foil card stock.  I flipped the sentiment to the top of the panel and added a bit of gold ribbon around the stems.  The gold polka dot vellum was adhered to a same size piece of Whisper White card stock using Glue Dots hiding behind some of the polka dots, then it was popped up on Dimensionals and layered on a Cherry Cobbler card stock base.

This card feels busy due to the vellum design but it really has few components and was easy to put together.  For the interior I added another sentiment stamp and a different part of the poppy stamp in Cherry Cobbler.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, and as always, I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  Be sure to use the links above to check out both challenges - lots of amazing inspiration in store for you!

Until next time...
