Celebrate for JAI #269

This is my entry for the Just Add Ink #269 - Color Combo challenge.

I used Lost Lagoon for my card base. I added a layer of Whisper White which has been stamped in Tip Top Taupe and Lost Lagoon using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I inked the stamp in each colour once and then stamped each three times to get the different shades.

I picked the largest butterfly from Watercolor Wings and stamped the layers using Soft Sky, followed by Pool Party and then Lost Lagoon. The butterfly was cut out using the matching Bold Butterfly framelits.

A Soft Sky butterfly, cut using the Butterflies thinlits, was added over the top of the stamped butterfly.

The Celebrate from the Expressions Natural Elements was coloured using Tip Top Taupe Ink.

The card has been finished by adding some Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I like this colour combination - what do you think?

Thanks for PPA258

Here is my entry for Pals Paper Arts #258 - a color challenge.

The base of my card is Night of Navy. This is followed by a layer of Cucumber Crush which I have embossed using the Brick Wall embossing folder.

I have cut two ovals using the Ovals Framelits. The first in Watermelon Wonder and the second, smaller one in Whisper White. I have stamped the flower from the You've Got This stamp set onto the smaller oval using Watermelon Wonder ink.

The Thanks from the Expressions Natural Elements has been coloured using Night of Navy ink and has been attached using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have finished the card by adding three Night of Navy Candy Dots.

The supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Happy Birthday for FMS193

This card is my entry for Freshly Made Sketches #193.

I have made a card suitable for a male today. I chose the recently retired Maritime Designer Series Paper as my starting point. The rest of the colours were chosen from the colours in the DSP. 

My base is Night of Navy, a thin mat of Coastal Cabana has been added to that followed by the Whisper White layer.

The ship from The Open Sea stamp set has been stamped in Night of Navy ink and the greeting from Express Yourself has been stamped in Real Red.

I have added two strips of DSP from the Maritime DSP.

I have finished the card by stamping the anchor from The Open Sea in Night of Navy and then fussing cutting it before adding to my card.
