Welcome back to a new challenge at Create With Connie and Mary! After a little Convention break we are back with a swanky new sketch challenge for you to try!
I thought that I'd been neglecting my new InColors for far too long, so I used some Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit on this card. I actually let the colors from the DSP I used, Comfort Cafe, guide me when putting this card together.
Then I turned to what is fast becoming one of my new favorite stamp sets, Everything Eleanor, for the focal point. I stamped the flourish onto the Pool Party DSP then again onto a scallop circle and lined up the circle over the flourish. The circle looked a little wan, so I sponged the edges with some Pool Party ink. The flower was stamped in Jet Black Stazon and colored with a Summer Starfruit marker. I added some Dazzling Details to the stamens on the flower and although it looks a little weird in the photo it looks VERY COOL in real life. It adds shimmer, sparkle and texture all at the same time!
And speaking of Dazzling Details have you ever been annoyed that when you add your little blobs to your work you get that pointy, volcano-shaped cone? Well, to round out the blob all you need to do is take the cardstock (the one with the annoying pointy, volcano-shaped cones), hold it horizontally, and flick the underside repeatedly with your fingers. Flick your fingers the way you would flick a bug off your shirt! The flicking spreads out the blob so that your pointy volcano is magically transformed into a gently rolling hill.
So now head on over to Create With Connie and Mary and check out the design team creations that are sure to get your creative juices flowing. I hope you can join us this week!
