Welcome! For DD#68 and rs79

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

My first reaction when I saw the color challenge at Dynamic Duos was to combine Perfect Plum with something like Old Olive and do up some flowers.  But then I had second thoughts and decided to use Lavender Moon from PTI and do a little monochramatic card.  Once I decided on colors it was a short leap to the challenge at retro sketches and the fab new stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps called Calypso.

I was trying to create the "brick wall" effect by sponging around the edges of the horizontal layers, but I don't think I applied enough "sponge!"  I also went off sketch when I decided to round the edges of these layers of card stock.  But the rounded edges just  looked right with these softly doodled images.

Thanks for stopping by!
