This time I am trying out Makeesha's Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #5.
I just received my Blue Bayou inkpad so I really wanted to try and use it in this challenge.
I love the Blue Bayou and will be sad to see it go by end March! However I do struggle a bit to give the Blue Bayou a lift with another colour - I find it tends to be a little dull. Maybe its just me!
I have used Sanded as a background for the Blue Bayou card, and have embossed in silver the Flitting By Jumbo Wheel stamp at the bottom of the card. I am loving embossing and the Flitting By Wheel Stamp is so quick and easy and pretty! Using the flower stamp from the Bold Butterfly set I stamped it repeatedly in Purely Pomegranate on Whisper White CS, and the strip of P. Pomegranate CS too. Next I stamped Think Happy Thoughts in Blue Bayou and P. Pomegranate. I used the 1-3/8" and 1-1/4" Circle Punches and the Scallop Circle Punch (don't you love how easy they are!), attached them together with a rhinestone brad, stuck them down with stampin' dimensionals and tied Blue Bayou db stitched ribbon. Lastly I attached 2 silver flower brads at the top right hand corner (not SU).
Well hope you like it! What do you think? I think I could have dressed it up further with Dazzling Diamonds but it was getting too late and time for me to get to bed!
