Yesterday in the back of my mind I knew it was Tuesday, but it didn’t really sink in until I realized the Color Challenge was up on SCS. I decided to combine the Pink Pirouette, Basic Black and Whisper White colors with the Kazan’s Sketch over at 2Sketches4You. I knew I had some Sweet Always designer series paper and one of the main colors is Pink Pirouette, so I pulled that out and everything else just fell into place. The base of the card is Basic Black and is layered with Pink Pirouette. I stamped this layer with my Paisley background stamp to give it some dimension. I then added paper piercing in the upper corners. The larger of the 2 middle layers is made from the same colors as the base. I did cheat a little because I stamped my Pink Pirouette layer in Regal Rose ink that had been stamped off once. I lined the point of the heart up in the center of the paper and stamped one on all four sides. I then added paper piercing all around this layer before I added the next layer of Basic Black topped with Sweet Always dsp. I then tied on the Pink Pirouette striped ribbon bow. The heart is stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White. After it dried I sponged Pink Pirouette ink into the center of the heart with a sponge dauber and set the heart up on dimensionals. I added the Sweet Serendipity sentiment in Regal Rose ink and added 2 vintage brads. The inside is layered with Whisper White and is stamped with the Elegant Cheer Birthday Wishes sentiment. Sometimes when a card is born, something magical takes place and this is one of those cards. It all came together so perfectly and it all flows together so well.
Last night I had my first class at Higher Grounds, formerly Moon Monkey Coffee Company. It was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the next one in two weeks! If you are in the area come in and join us.
Today is a rainy day, so I feel that some more stamping is in order. It was drizzling until we turned to walk home from the bus stop and then it started pouring just because I didn’t have an umbrella to take. I guess I’ll be investing in one of those pretty soon as I’m sure rainy fall weather is going to be more of the norm. Well, I’m off to get a few things accomplished around here. I feel like I’ve been living in a whirlwind these last few weeks and I can’t wait to have a chance to slow down.
