CR84FN30 – Color Challenge

31 May

CR84FN30 Color Challenge

This week’s challenge on CR84FN was to use the Main colors of light blue, light yellow and kraft provided by the suggested graphic.

My card started with a lovely piece of lace i bought a few months ago from Melissa Frances. The lace was bright white and, in order to make it work with the color requirements, I decided to “antique” it, by placing it in a small ziploc baggie with a drop of Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks in Old Paper and Antique Lines and a few sprays of water, diluted until the color was what I was aiming for. Cardbase is kraft and a panel from K & Company‘s Life’s Journey pad was cut and edges distressed with Distress inks. I punched three strips of pattern paper in a bluish script paper and a dotted weathered yellow and layered them on the printed panel. The died antique lace was gathered and glue behind the hand stamped sentiment panel (Eternity from Our Daily Bread Designs) and #D foam dots were used to add it to the card. Self-adhesive pearls were added around the sentiment panel.

Supplies used are as indicated: Stamp set/Die Eternity (Our Daily Bread Designs & Spellbinders); Cardstock Crumb Cake #120953, Whisper White #100730(Stampin’ Up), Designer paper Butterfly Garden (PinkPaislee), 5th Avenue (Melissa Frances), Life’s Journey (K & Company); Ink Old Olive #102277 (Stampin’ Up); Punch Martha Stewart; Lace (Melissa Frances); Pearls self-adhesive (Mark Richards); 3D foam dots; mini glue dots; Distress Ink Old Paper & Antique Lines (Ranger/Tim Holtz)
