Two Cards, Three Challenges
Good Morning Everyone!
I apologize for not posting yesterday; the day just got away from me. I did have the chance to complete two challenges. The first one is from Beate's Be Inspired Challenge from Tuesday. Obviously, the first thing that came to mind for me in this piece were the circles, which I incorporated at the bottom of my design. I used So Saffron, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy and Turquoise for my colors. The theme of this card was round , so I rounded the corners of the card and some of the accent pieces as well. The main image in the middle is from the "Cheers to You" set, which I stamped in Mustard ink and then filled in with aquapainters. I cut them out and attached it to an Old Olive Scallop Circle layered on another Saffron Scallop Circle. I used today's SCS sketch challenge for the layout of the card as well.
The second card is for this week's color inspiration from KWerner. This week's colors were Pacific Point, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, and White. I also used the same SCS sketch; but flipped it to get a bit of a different look. I chose "Fresh Cuts" for my stamp set and simply cut it into equal pieces to put across the middle. I added eyelets and ribbon as accessories to finish the card.
Both of these cards will be going in my pile for the SCS Cards for A Cause.
So, that's it for stamping for now. Be sure to scroll down for this week's recipe. Have a great day and thanks for visiting with me.
