Paper Players 387 and Freshly Made Sketches 331
I’ve been looking at this theme challenge all week. I knew I wanted to use the Music Sheet background stamp and the Wood Words stamp set has the sentiment I needed. Two color combinations were floating around in my head: Basic Black and either Cherry Cobbler or Crushed Curry. Crushed Curry would provide a striking contrast to the Basic Black, so that’s what I chose.
Then I saw the FMS challenge for this week and it all came together in my mind. I paired the Music Sheet and Wood Words with Petal Pallete stamp set and Petals and More thinlits. My original thought was to emboss the Crushed Curry mat. But then I decided to keep it simpler by stamping the music sheet in Crushed Curry on the mat. This gives a very subtle, but much needed, texture to the base of the card.
Here’s my card:
Here are the challenge sketches:
Completely Hooked on the Petal Pallette Bundle
I am absolutely and completely hooked on this bundle. During SAB, demonstrators were notified that the stamp set and die set are carrying over into the next annual catalog. YEAH!! These branches, the sentiment tag, the detailed banner, and this adorable watercolored bird stamp have been used in a number of cards over the last week or so.
In order to ensure that the sentiment tags would not appear to be floating on the card, I simply wrapped Basic Black bakers twine around the panels. The twine almost disappears with everything else going on with the card, but it serves it’s purpose.
Have a Peachy Day!
