Just a quick post to show you a card I have created for two challenges. The first is Case Study #49 and the inspiration for this challenge is this beautiful card by Dawn Woleslagle:
The second challenge is CR84FN colour challenge with these gorgeous colours:
Here is my creation:
I created my base from Kraft cardstock and added a layer of Lemon Zest. I created my background using Papertrey's grid cardstock and my Guidelines 2 background stamp set with Melon Mambo ink and Pretty In Pink ink. I stamped my umbrella image from Up, Up and Away onto a small square panel and stamped it again in Melon Mambo ink, popping it up on dimensionals. I die cut two clouds from Lemon Zest cardstock with my cloud die and embossed them with my Linen impression plate. The sentiment was stamped in Kraft ink, cut into a banner and then the tiny flower image from Up, Up and Away was stamped in Pretty In Pink ink with a silver rhinestone attached. This panel was then adhered to a Kraft border and raised on foam tape with some Lemon Zest ribbon attached underneath.
I had so much fun with both of these challenges as the colours were divine and I LOVE stamping my own backgrounds!
