Double whammy

Sit down and take a deep breath. I’ve managed to participate in TWO challenges AND get a photo taken before the challenges close! I think that’s a first for me :) The two challenges are the ColourQ challenge 137:
I flipped the sketch to landscape and started with a crumb cake card base and added a subtle background using the swirl from Everything Eleanor and second generation stamping. I inked the stamp, then stamped onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping on the card – this produces a paler impression. I used the very vintage wheel with razzleberry ink onto white cardstock, then sponged a little crumb cake ink on the edges to soften them a little. This has then been trimmed and added to a navy layer with one scalloped side.
The label shape from Everything Eleanor has been stamped with bashful blue ink on white cardstock, and the sentiment added using navy ink. This has been trimmed and attached to the card using dimensionals. Two razzleberry coloured flowers have been cut out and attached to the top right hand corner of the label. A pearl in the centre of each flower finishes the card off.
Products used (all Stampin’ Up!):
  • Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Sincere Salutations
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Night of Navy
  • Other: Scallop Edge border punch, Basic Pearls, Stamp-a-ma-jig, dimensionals.
