This week it is a great colour challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary. There are so many ways you can interpret a colour challenge depending on the one you choose as your dominant colour. My choice was So Saffron, such a soft, pretty shade of yellow.
I thought it would be fun to keep the alliteration going a bit longer, so used stamp sets with a couple of 'S's' too, you can't ever have too many can you? I stamped twice with Soft Suede, using the stamp set Serene Silhouettes, onto Sahara Sand,giving the illusion of shadows or fog. I then used the main stamp from the stamp set So Sorry to stamp over the tree image.
The Big Shot had a big workout for this card!!! I embossed the So Saffron panel using the Fancy Fan Folder, cut a piece of DSP from Comfort Cafe paper with one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits and cut the stamped image with the Ovals Collection Framelits. There are six smooth-edged ovals and the seventh is the largest and it is scalloped. I love adding brads to the ends of this label shape, it seems to ask for something like that to finish it off and these Antique brads are perfect. This has been adhered with dimensionals to lift it a bit.
I layered this card up quite a bit with a Sahara Sand Base, then Soft Suede, another Sahara Sand, finished with the textured panel of So Saffron. Inside I place a square of Soft Suede first and then a slightly smaller Very Vanilla square stamped with another tree and greeting from So Sorry.
I thought the colour was a bit too cheerful to be anything but a "Get Well" card, so I finished it with this greeting. Luckily, no-one I know is ill at the moment, so into the stash it goes!
I am having a fairly quiet weekend as I pack my bag to leave for the South Pacific Convention in sunny Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) on Wednesday. Can hardly wait to get together with my Stampin' Up buddies as we see (and receive too) the new products about to be launched in Australia. Yippeee!!
Have a good weekend
