I managed to do 4 cards today for a few challenges and this is the first one. It is for the Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge #7, Our Creative Corner's other challenge - Think Easter and Sketch 'n' Color #3 to use Apricot Appeal, Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. (It was confusing trying to work out what Mattgrun was in English until I remembered I could view the German SU catty online and could work it out from there!)
Stamps: A Good Egg, Polka Dot Background
Papers: Apricot Appeal, Lavender Lace, Whisper White, Certainly Celery DSP (retired)
Inks: Basic Black, Lavender Lace ink and marker, Certainly Celery marker, Apricot Appeal marker, Barely Banana marker
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Card Candy from Craftworks Cards
My next card is another Easter card and is for Mojo#130 and Just Us Girls #25 to use Light Brown, Light Blue, Yellow and Light Green. I used Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Old Olive, which technically is NOT really a light green, but as it was in the DSP I chose to use, I went with that one. I really struggled with this sketch for some reason. It just didn't work for me at all and the Old Olive panel just looks wrong in my opinion!
Stamps: Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories
Papers: Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, Whisper White, Junior Varsity DSP (retired)
Inks: Basic Black, SU Markers in Bashful Blue, Basic Gray, Old Olive, Blush Blossom, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Old Olive twill (from an old US mini catalogue), Circle Nestabilities, Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, EK Success Wavy Border Punch
Yet another Easter card up next and is for Stampin' Royalty's #11 - the sketch and for Papertake's Weekly Challenge to use Lilac and Lemon! I haven't used any High Hopes Stamps for ages - must get them all out again soon.
Stamps: On Top Of The World, Single Chick and sentiment all from High Hopes Stamps
Papers: Lovely Lilac, Barely Banana, Non SU White, DSP from Papermania (from upteen years ago)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos, Lovely Lilac ink and marker
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, lemon organza ribbon and lilac sparkle twill from stash
My last card for today was for Just Add Ink's #9 - the sketch (although I didn't strictly stick to it - I moved the sentiment and forgot the brads at the top - oops!) and for Stacey's Curtain Call #22 to use Real Red, Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow, Whisper White and Basic Black! Yikes what a colour combo that is! But I kind of like it!
I used the scrunched up flowers technique that Jane demonstrated at the Reading event yesterday and whilst the vellum isn't as bright as cardstock would have been I like the slightly muted colours. I also added lots of sparkle using glitter on the edges of the flower and now my entire carpet has red and gold flecks in it! Don't you just love how glitter gets everywhere even when you only use the tiniest bit?!
Stamps: Bella's Border wheel, Sincere Salutations
Papers: Yoyo Yellow, Basic Black, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Vellum from Papermania (my SU vellum cardstock was too thick so I must get some of the vellum paper instead)
Inks: Basic Black wheel ink cartridge, Real Red, Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Black Brads (hidden in the middle of the vellum flowers)
And that's all my cards for today. I did also make 4 Easter mini baskets which I'll upload in another post as it was for this fortnight's Inspiring Inkin' Challenge.
Thanks for looking!
