Way out of my comfort zone here

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

The colors for the Color Throwdown Challenge 146 are not what I normally work with. Therein lies the challenge for this stamper! The layout is from the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 337.

The cardbase is a standard A2 in Lucky Limeade, followed by a layer of Tangerine Tango, followed by a layer of Greenhouse Gala designer paper that's been doctored up. I used some Martha Stewart Carnelian glitter to add bling to all the "orange" areas of the pattern. Next came a strip of Tangerine Tango that's been stamped with the floral image and then dry embossed.

The focal point is stamped on a nestie die cut. I cut several layers of the flower out of the same designer paper and did a little bit of paper tole, then added some of the same glitter to the center of the flower.

Recipe:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Friends Never Fade
Paper: Stampin' Up! Greenhouse Gala DSP, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade and Tangerine
Tango
Ink: Stampin' Up! Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Wizard, Fleur de lis Rectangle nestabilities, Tombow Multi, paper snips, Martha Stewart Carnelian glitter and Sizzix embossing folder

Well that's it for today; have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
