Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Another week coming to a close! Hope it was a good one for you! This is a holiday weekend here in the States and our family is planning to take a trip up north to do some leaf peeping and see all the beautiful Fall foliage before the leaves are gone for another year! Hope you have a great weekend too!
Our challenge this week at Stamp Something is to use the color brown. You can make a card that is a monochromatic style with different shades of brown or you can use brown with other colors. As long as you have brown in good supply on your project, you will have a chance to win our fabulous prize donated by iCopic and be entered for a chance to be selected as Top 5 Stamper!
I created my card with my sister's first anniversary in mind. Her wedding colors were cream and brown so this challenge came at a perfect time! I used this beautiful image from Mo's Digital Pencil and colored it with Copics in browns and creams. I also added some Spica glitter accents, but they are hard to see in the photo. I wanted to go with a vintage feel to keep in line with this image, so I distressed the edges.
The layout is from Inspirational Card Sketches, it's sketch number 37. I used some retired SU! papers and cardstock in cream and brown. The ribbon was from the favors in my sister's wedding. I knew it would come in handy one day. I also embellished with HPH in vanilla to frame their names on the ribbon and then added Prima roses and pearls to finish off this card. This card also fits the embossing challenge at ABC Challenges.
Our challenge for you at Just Magnolia this week is a sketch by the very talented and super sweet Mina! It was a fun sketch to work with and I think I will be using it again sometime!
I went for some cheerful bright colors as I intend to send this card as a birthday wish for a friend. As usual, it's going to be late, as I had poor planning yet again!
I used some June Bug BasicGrey papers with bright pink and soft pink cardstock. My image has been colored with Copics and the I cut out Tilda and popped her up a bit to create more depth. I finished with card with some Prima flowers and buttons and a wide piece of stitched grosgrain ribbon.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend! And if you are up for a challenge, head on over to Stamp Something and Just Magnolia and take part! Happy stamping! :)
