I’ve been wanting to get back into participating in more challenges, but I seem to be short on time – so this time, when I saw the new Watercooler Challenge, I made sure to get it done!
This week it’s a colour challenge, put together by my friend Susan Horr – here it is:
I had an idea in my head as to what I wanted to do – here’s how it came out:
It was nice to take a break from Christmas cards, and remind myself of Spring!
I started by masking off my Whisper White cardstock, and sponging the So Saffron and Pool Party inks using Sponge Daubers down the middle. After removing the masking, I stamped the flower image from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set in the middle, using Watermelon Wonder ink. I added a few of the colour splashes in Pool Party ink, then stamped the dragonfly in Basic Gray onto Vellum Cardstock. After stamping, I covered the dragonfly with Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set it with the Heat Tool, then cut it out. I like the shiny-ness of the wings!
I used my Project Life Corner Rounder Punch for the corners of the stamped panel as well as the Watermelon Wonder cardstock panel that I layered it on to. I then used my retired punch to make the 2 pieces in Pool Party cardstock on the side, and added a Basic Gray Candy Dot on each one. Finally, I layered it all onto a card base of Basic Gray.
I decided to leave the card without a sentiment for now, so that I can add one later, when I want to use the card.
I hope you’ll check out the Watercooler Challenge page, and see what the design team came up with for our inspiration. They’re wonderful!
Thanks for spending some time with me today – and remember to get your order in for 15% OFF Stamps!
Until next time – happy stamping!
