Creative Sketches Color Challenge - 28 & Diva Inspiration
Hello all!!! Another week has come and gone and here we are at another Thursday. Time for both the Creative Sketches and UDI Blog Inspiration challenges!!!
The challenge this week on Creative Sketches is to use the colors of Daffodil Delight, Bashful Blue and Elegant Eggplant. What a combo!!! I played with this combo some the other day for my GCA 131 card. I have to say that the Bashful Blue threw me for a loop!
So, I started with a Whisper White card base and the sketch from Stamping 411 for this week. A nice easy and clean sketch. Worked for me with these colors! And I pulled out a stamp set that I haven't used, at all, and put ink to it!! (And I buy more why???)
I used Silhouette Sentiments, a level 1 hostess set. Since the Bashful Blue was throwing me off, I tried to keep it to a minimum. I stamped the weedy flower image in Bashful Blue, randomly. With the sketch you can really use anything on the left hand side, so I stamped the images in the three colors. The smaller flower which I stamped in Elegant Eggplant, is from Because I Care, another level 1 hostess set. Notice the theme???
The rest is really quite simple, and easy. I stamped the bird/branch and then stamped the bird again and cut it out. It's popped up with dimensionals. Whisper White taffeta and Daffodil Delight 1/8" taffeta were used with white crochet thread tied around and through the button to hold it on.
