I played along My Favorite Things challenges today.
I played both the sketch as well as the colour palette challenge.
Here is this week’s sketch #179
And this is monthly colour challenge.
This is my take on both the challenges.
I went for a very textural card using the sketch and colours. I felt the colours were more nautical and so went with the nautical theme. For the background I have used Western Backgrounds stamp set. I stamped the wooden planks using kraft and navy. I stamped few more planks on scrap piece of paper, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesives to give the dimension. Sponged the edges with some Frayed Burlap distress ink. I then wrapped some natural twine to give texture. The centre circle is die cut using spearmint cardstock and using stitched circle die namics. I stamped the sentiment on the circle. I cut the long sentiment into each word and stamped it so the sentiment fit inside the circle. Sponged the circle using spearmint ink. I have used Lets go Overboard anchor and lifebuoy die cuts for the smaller elements on the sketch. Finally accented with some sequins. Very textural card and masculine as well. I love how my background came together. Hope you like my card.
Thanks for stopping!
