I’ve recently received numerous announcements for graduations and a military retirement which means I needed to create some congratulations cards. I knew I wanted to use the congrats text from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and the Marbled background stamp but “how” was the challenge. After stamping the background I thought of cutting up the image into panels for a unique layout.
I used four different colors to create this varied marbled background. Be sure to use a separate sponge dauber for each color so you don’t muddy up your ink pads or the image. I’ve listed the colors below in the color challenge so you can give them a try. Dabbing on each color individually took a bit of time but the results are a beautiful array of colors that blend well with one another.
I die cut the “congrats” once in Very Vanilla cardstock and then again in Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets making adhering them together, and to the layer, so easy! You’ll notice I offset the Very Vanilla layer just slightly which gives a great 3D look to the script.
I created a small banner to add additional text from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. And what’s a card without a little bling? I picked out a few of the coordinating sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. This assortment is fabulous since it has such an array of colors!
Here’s your color challenge for this week!
