My Sample for Colour Inspiration Challenge 19

Here is my card for Kristina's Colour Challenge. I just got my first new catty order, so I had to play right away! So I used the black, the gray, the white, and....the blue. My colour of choice is Baja Breeze! I chose that because I saw my new double stitched ribbon in that colour, and I really wanted to use it. I tried to tie it 2 times, and ended up wasting it. I need practice with the fat ribbons.

For the main image, I used the new stamp set Upsy Daisy. I covered the stamp with the Basic Gray ink, then I took my sponge dauber, soaked it in Baja Breeze ink, and dabbed that around some of the flowers, so there is a dual-toned sort of look to it.

In the background, I used the Inspired By Nature stamp set (the grass), and stamped that in Basic Gray ink, and sponged the bottom.

I used an old chipboard piece from one of the retired packs. I covered it in Versamark, put the Heat & Stick powder on it, and heated it up with the heat tool. While it was sticky, I poured Onyx Glitter on it (Martha Stewart), and then heat set. THe middle part is the Designer Label Punch and the Large Oval Punch.


SS: Upsy Daisy, Inspired By Nature

CS: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, Baja Breeze

Ink: Baja Breeze, Basic Gray, Versamark

Other: Silver Brads, Gray Tafeta Ribbon, Sponge Daubers, Chipboard, Glitter, Large Oval Punch, Designer Label Punch, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack

Hope you like it!

***Added: the first pic was taken at night. Here is a day-time pic.

Ahh...yet ANOTHER fabulous new Stampin' Up set! I really enjoy how you didn't find it necessary to put the bottom on the stamp at the edge of your paper. Very daring!
