Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #165
This week a colour challenge: Night of navy, watermelon wonder, marina mist.
I used Distress inks: Chipped sapphire, broken china and abandoned coral to match the Stampin' Up ones.Maybe faded jeans would have been better as chipped sapphire is a bit more purple-ish.oh well
I made a panel with a dotted edge with my Big shot and a Marianne design die, then die cut the painted happy birthday from Simon Says Stamp out of this panel and I traced it onto the cardbase so I would know where to ink.
For the inking I used the mini blending tool from Tim Holtz and applied the three colours in no particular order. I mounted the panel with foamtape and applied it to the cardbase.
At first I thought marina scene and came up with almost the same idea as Stef's card, so walked away from that, then thought instead of a sailboat I can use an anchor die, I have the perfect sentiment stamp for it was well...so whilst flicking through my dies I came across the painted happy birthday and it clicked in my head.
Scenes and colours are always tricky for me ;-)
