How is it Thursday already?! I really don't know where this week has gone! I've been hard at work today doing some tidying in my craft room and making some pretties too! Today I've got a challenge entry for the Paper Players.
Now this sketch is so lovely and simple - and I began this thinking I'd do a seriously simple card with a few strips of DSP and an embellishment or two. I'm not sure it ended up quite the way I'd intended but its cute!
Stamp Set: Beautifully Baroque, Label Love
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry
Cardstock: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
DSP: Eastern Elegance
Punch: Scallop Border, Artisan Label
Embellishments: Brights Button, Brights Candy Dots, Whisper White Baker's Twine
Pretty simple really, I stamped off the baroque stamp for a lighter shade in the background and added little strips of co-ordinating pattern paper over the top.
I hand cut the label really close to the stamped image and then layered it on the Cabana cardstock for a little border. the sentiment was stamped in the cabana also and cut out with a dimensional underneath for some height.
Finishing touches were candy dots and a button - I didn't have these in Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana but I used the closest I did have - Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Deilght. I don't think it looks too off colour wise! The little baker's twine bow just helped soften the button.
I'm really loving this colour combination - what do you think? Now, I'm back to my craft room to play some more!
