I saw this card on Splitcoast & wanted to CASE it. I really liked the white embossing on kraft & thought the main image would go well with Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch. I then realised that Kraft was in this week's 'Just Add Ink' challenge, so I combined the lot. I'm still not sure about the card as a whole, the background stripes really stumped me, but I like the part I 'stole', the embossed birdcage.
First the sketch & colour challenge:
And what I did with it:
I used Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom & Kraft CS & (sadly now retired) Parisian Breeze DSP. I used the Birdcage image and 'For You' sentiment from the fabbo SAB set 'Happy Moments' (& it was a Happy Moment when I first saw this set in the SAB catty). I stamped them onto the Cameo Coral & Blush Blossom CS & also white embossed them onto the kraft CS. Think I can see myself using white embossing on kraft again, I really like the effect. I draw the chain using my white gel pen. The button is from my stash (thanks to Lee-Anne Barry who thoughtfully gave me a stack of lovely buttons).
Also take a look at Sarah-Jane's blog, she used the same sketch & colours with a much better outcome!
Well, my plastering is done, now to see if it stops raining long enough for the roofing guy to come on Thursday. These early morning starts are great for getting things done but I think I feel a nanna nap coming on :-)
Thanks for popping by,
