Simply Thanks


It's been awhile since I got in a card challenge.  This card is for two challenges at Splitcoaststampers.  The color challenge this week is to use Pacific Point, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi.  I have none of that green in paper or ink so I used just a touch of Garden Green and there is a little green in the twine which was the desert option for the challenge.

What I found most difficult was the sketch.  Sometimes, layering simple rectangles gives me the most grief.  I got all my colors in on one layer and then found it tough to make the rest work without being overpowering.  I'm really pleased with my tone-on-tone square stamped directly on the background.  I created a mask with a rectangle cut out and then stamped inside the rectangle.  Faux stitching in the same color ink finished it off.


I'll have several other cards to post in the next few days.  We have card class tonight focusing on using small stamps.  Better get set up.

Thanks for visiting today!
