So I have participated in 2 challenges on SCS - the colour challenge and the sketch challenge for this week. I never have enough time to make 2 seperate cards, so I always combine them. It usually has an interesting result. I like these challenges because they push me out of my boundaries.
For instance, I never would have put these colours together: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, and Real Red. But ta da...it doesn't look half bad!
It was a very nice sketch (layout) also.
For the background, I used the Pretty Petals BG stamp. I stamped it first with Blue Bayou ink, and let it dry. Then, I stamped with Versamark and embossed with White emboss powder.
I stamped the hummingbird with Blue Bayou ink, and watercoloured it with my Aqua Painter.
I used my mat pack and Crop-A-Dile to space out the Jumbo Eyelets. And the small and large oval punches for the embellishment on the Inspire piece.
