Thank You for CTS126 CTD345 AYSIC090

Monday, June 8, 2015

The weather here the last couple of days has been gorgeous so I've been spending a lot of time outside.  But I did manage to sneak in my craft room and mass produce some graduation cards for a friend (and thanks to my MISTI for making it so easy to do!) and to make a one layer card for the latest As You See It challenge using the colors from Color Throwdown and the layout from CAS(E) This Sketch.




I had a little bit of a happy accident while making this card.  I wanted to remain strictly true to the color challenge and just use one shade of red.  But the stamp I wanted to use needed a little contrast between the image layers so I inked the largest image first, stamped off onto a piece of scrap paper then stamped it onto my card stock.  The end result was rather splotchy and I considered trashing it but the more I looked at it the more I liked it.   So I went ahead and added the other layers as usual.  The flowers are sort of abstract and I think they look pretty good all splotched up!

I didn't have any leaves that looked right with these abstract flowers which meant no green leaves.  So I stamped the sentiment in green instead!  It looks quite dark in the photo and could be mistaken for black, but trust me it's green!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Abstract Poppies (Rubbernecker Stamps); Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir)
Ink:  Real Red, Garden Green (SU); Black Licorice (My Favorite Things)
