Happy Thursday! Today, I just love the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge! Scroll down to view the gorgeous sketch by Margaret Moody. I made my first card on the right with the purples and greens but just wasn’t really happy with it. I thought the writing in the background was too overpowering. So I headed back to my craft room and changed up the colors using Regal Rose and Tempting Turquoise. So what do you think? Which card do you like better?
Just in case you didn’t hear, I posted some Blog Candy last night! Click Here to view all the details and leave me a comment on that post for a chance to win!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
I used Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla as my color choices for this card. I used up the remaining background paper from the Easter Blossoms stamp set from the April Blog Hop. My script is from the retired French Script Stamp Set. I ran the Wild Wasabi card stock through the Big Shot using Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and then punched out my scallop edges.
“Happiness Always” sentiment can be found in the Happy Greetings Stamp Set. I colored my flowers using SU! Markers on the Fast & Fabulous Hostess Level 2 Stamp Set. I then added Pearl Jewels to the center of each flower.
My second card, I chose to use Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose and Sahara Sand. I again used the retired French Script Stamp set but this time used Sahara Sand Ink for a lighter background. “Birthday Wishes” sentiment comes from the Bring on the Cake stamp set.
I used the new Fabulous Florets stamp set on this card. I couldn’t believe how both Stamp Sets are so similar. I then used the Regal Rose & Tempting Turquoise Markers to color the stamp images. On the center of each flower, I added one Pearl Jewel.
