Same Same Friday!


Hello there ladies and gents! I know it's Friday and I'm way late with posting this, but it was a gorgeous day outside and we just had a blast playing...hmmmm I'm fearing the spring and summer...what will my blogging become? I'm sure I will have lots of time, so don't fear!

Here is my same same challenge. I actually got the sketch from an awesome blog called MY PAPER WORLD where she hosts a sketch challenge every two weeks! It's a fun challenge and it could go either way...regular card or tent topper style... I choose the tent topper like on her blog , just cuz I like the look!



So here are my cards!

The first one I really really like... The base of the card is made from shimmery white cardstock (love this stuff!!) and then the scalloped rectangle from my beloved Nestabilities! For this card I also colored the sky with the soft sky ink and aqua painter, the colors for the next card were just too dark and would not look right! This card is also for the color challenge (STCC17) found here and I just love the colors that Sara picked...I choose to use them very lightly, but I think it does the trick!

Supplies:

Stamps: Time well spent, curvey verses

paper: Shimmery white, soft sky, goovey guave, barely banana, certainly celery, designer paper in groovey guava

Ink: groovey guava, soft sky, barely banana, certainly celery, stazon-black

Accessories: Primas, page pebbles, nestabilities, aquapainter, crystal effects and dazzling diamonds glitter

For my next card...

I used some of the same colors but added tempting turquoise and brilliant blue, ad made the base of the card certainly celery...not sure that I like it or not! What I do like though is the contrast of the coloring with the same ink...just adding more color to the same spot, concentrated. and I like the lined paper, makes it look a little more linear next to the scallops which, to me, is a nice design element! I would of loved to color the sky, but again I think it would look too dark!So here are the deets!


Supplies:

Stamps: Time well spent, curvey verses

paper: certainly celery, groovey guava, tempting turquoise, brilliant blue, very vanilla, certainly celery designer series paper

ink: stazon black, groovey guava, certainly celery

accessories: primas, page pebbles, nestabilities, aqua painters, crystal effects, dazzling diamonds glitter
