Colour Me... Striking!

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Just popping in to share a striking, new palette from Colour Me...!  This week's color story calls for Stampin' Up's Lost Lagoon and Real Red.  Here's how I was inspired.

I started this card by using a template to cut both the red, polka dot, patterned paper and its White, cardstock insert into the shape of an apple.  Its center was then dressed with a little chalkboard, which was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on both Kraft and Black cardstocks and hand-cut out.  I then stamped its center, in Cotton White ink, with the "WAY TO GO celebrate You Did It" sentiment and popped it off the surface of the card face with foam tape.
The apple was topped with a woodgrain, patterned paper stem, which was also cut from a template, as well as a couple of leaves, stamped, in Jet Black ink, on an aqua, gingham, patterned paper; hand-cut out; and adhered with foam tape.  A bit of white, seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and embellished with a length of lace, as well as a button, laced with a white, chord bow, completes the look.
Here's your Creative Challenge No. 88 graphic to get you started.
