Happy Saturday! It's time for another Our Creative Corner challenge, and this week's a color challenge I'm sure you'll love. I had such fun playing along as this month's Guest Designer again this week. Be sure to check out the OCC Blog for all the challenge details.
I started by stamping the flower from Beautiful You in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then coloring with Copic markers. I then stamped the flower again and just cut out the top four swirls and the center. I glued down the center with regular adhesive and put small pieces of pop dots on the end of each of the four trimmed swirls, to make them pop up. Next I highlighted all the swirls in the flower with a Diamond Glaze and glitter mixture. Then I took one of the cool stamps from the Inkadinkado Foliage Trails set and stamped around the outer edges of the panel, as well as across a piece of Ruby Red cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Artful Elegance set, and I inked up the top section with Ruby Red and the bottom with Rich Cocoa and stamped on a Nestabilities tag. (It's actually a key hole looking tag from the Tags 5 collection, but I oriented it under the flower panel so it looks like just a little miniature of the top panel.) I also stamped just the corners with the fall foliage stamp, then inked both panels with Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip inks. The Ruby Red strip I stamped earlier is matted on Chocolate Chip and I pierced holes across the top and bottom edges, then tied a knotted bow of chocolate chip polytwill across the panel. The olive panel is from the SU! Bali Breeze DSP pack and I added some antique copper brads (lifting the concept of one big and one small brad as an accent from JanTink's cool cards of late). I finished off by matting everything on a chocolate chip card base.
Okay, hope y'all have a no-stress fun-filled weekend!
