*Thrilled to have my card pick as a Colour Connoisseur at the Colour Me...! challenge!*
I love it when a sketch is for a card that is unusual. That describes the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments perfectly: unusual. Of course I had to try it.
It's fun when I can find a colour challenge that appears just perfect for a sketch challenge and, with the dual challenge opportunity at Colour Me...!, I found just that.
Since there was a choice as to which of the colour combinations could be used, I chose number two, chocolate chip, blushing bride, and lost lagoon. Of course it's always all right to use a neutral with the colours and I chose white.
I had just received the Lovely Lace embossing folder in my last order and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity to use it. So I cut five narrow strips of Whisper White, arranged them in the embossing folder with a small gap between each one and ran them through the Big Shot. I sponged Blushing Bride into each of the lacy flowers and then used a sponge dauber to add some Chocolate Chip into the centres. Then I used my Aqua Painter and Lost Lagoon ink to colour the leaves.
For my base I used Naturals White and then added a layer of Blushing Bride which I had first scored so that there would be a scoring line between each strip of embossed Whisper White and many scored lines below the strips. Then I glued down the strips of embossed Whisper White.
For the off-set piece, I cut a piece of Whisper White which I glued to a matte of Blushing Bride. I stamped my sentiment using Lost Lagoon and the Feel Goods stamp set. Finally I added a tiny bow of White Baker's Twine and a heart that I cut from Silver Glimmer paper spritzed with Blushing Bride ink.
