a little kindness...

Hello!!  I'm back with a card that I made using the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch and the color combo from ColourQ.  I'm also going to pop this into the current AAA Card challenge watercolor.  I hope my splatters of color are sufficient for the challenge.



When the new Stampin Up! catalog came out I was immediately drawn to a set called Kinda Eclectic.  I finally was able to purchase it and picked it up from my SU! demo, Jenna, this morning.  When I got home with it I immediately set about creating my card.  I knew I wanted to layer some of the stamps so I started with the large sun image from the set and stamped it in Early Espresso.  The leafy image was layered on using Certain Celery.  I cut the white cardstock piece and then splattered it with some watered down Real Red ink.  A strip of kraft colored washi tape was added.  The leaf image was inked with the green ink then rolled in Early Espresso and trimmed out.  I repeated the process rolling the image in Real Red and trimmed out.  These pieces were adhered and the sentiment banner was adhered on top.  I split up the sentiment by masking it as needed.  The butterfly was inked with kraft ink and then rolled in Real Red, punched out and adhered as you see.  Finished things off with a large sequin on the body and clear sequins scattered around the card.  Added in a detail shot of the cluster of images. 

 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! Crumb Cake; white; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! Certain Celery, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Real Red; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh clear; Die:  Reverse Confetti Tag Me

Hello Rosie,
Well you have done it again... I could feel the excitement through your post on the eagerness to use the stamp set immediately once you picked it up, and goodness you have related this impatient desire wonderfully with this card; it is just stunning. Must be my favourite for the year I think.
