Here is Makeesha’s Byl’s Inkspiration Colour Challenge for this week. Now this certainly was a challenge for me. But oh how I love it! Really Rust is a hard one for me to work with but I was so surprised how well it works with the colours in this challenge. Here is my design for this week
I started with the base! I versa mark inked one of the stems out of the Pocket Silhouettes SS around the edge and then clear embossed it. The Sage Shadow piece has the Sanded BG stamped in second generation as I didn’t want it too dark. I then distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit. For the main image I did a technique I learnt at convention. I am not sure what it was called though, I just cannot remember….see having kids causes you to lose brain cells…lol! If anyone can remember the name of the technique that Jill Kocherhans (oh no! I’m not even sure if Jill was the one who showed it now!) or was it Pam? Oh dear I’m just jabbering now! Oh well if anyone can remember, please refresh me. Thanks.
Back to the card. I will call it background layering! It’s like making a landscape with layers without actually layering! I stamped the lightest colour, being Sage Shadow, first. Second was the Really Rust and then Chocolate Chip representing the foreground. I hope you can see it. This is my first attempt and I’m sure I can only get better at it! As long as I don’t forget it…lol!
To finsh it off I sponged around the edges in all three colours. I then added a Eyelet Edge punched in Really Rust on the end. For some embellishments I tied the Choc Chip Ribbon around the image and tied a Vanilla button on with Linen Thread. Finally I pierced holes using the Mat Pack in the Sage Shadow CS. What do you think??
Here is complete list of what I used-
- Stamp Set– Pocket Silhouettes and Sanded BG
- Cardstock– Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Really Rust and Very Vanilla
- Ink– Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Really Rust and Versa Mark
- Accessories– Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Very Vanilla Button, Linen Thread, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Mat Pack, Sponges, Cutter Kit and Eyelet Edge Punch.
