CCMC134-Sketch Challenge

We have another sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary. The sketch for this week was meant for a square card but I opted to make mine the usual card size. I don't keep square envelopes on hand so this is easier for me. This is the sketch for this week:

An easy way to create a great border is to layer several colors together. I actually used my "Color Coach" today to come up with a very different color combination. I hardly ever use "Basic Gray" so I picked that color on my "Color Coach" and this was one of the suggestions: Basic Gray, Cajun Craze and Baja Breeze. I also added "Whisper White".

Notice how I created my background images? I first inked my stamp with "Baja Breeze ink" and stamped. Without re-inking, I stamped again. This creates light and dark shading.
Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Basic Gray, Whisper White
  • Tools: Decorative Label Punch, Tasteful Trim Die, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die
  • Inks: Baja Breeze
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamp Sets: Easter Blossoms, Bring On The Cake

I have another post scheduled for this morning so make sure you don't miss it!
