I’m squeezing in a card for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge which is also a design team call! This week is a color challenge:
Here is the card I came up with:
I had fun with this one! I used the smoosh technique for my watercolor background. The hat and gloves use generational stamping. The sentiment is silver embossed. I used grey as my neutral color (to evoke the silver color).
I have to love on my MISTI again. This color challenge is one where you can only use the colors asked for (equivalents accepted, but no additional colors – like I could not add a yellow to this, even in a small amount). So to get some contrast, I like to employ the generational stamping technique. Sometimes you don’t get a good impression in the generations. This is where MISTI came in. I placed my stamps on the MISTI, stamped onto scrap, then stamped on my good paper. And yes, not the best impression….so I just did it all again – ink, stamp on scrap, stamp on good paper! So happy! Both the hat and the gloves are just 2 layers of generational, but the hat ended up a bit darker. I’m ok with it :)
Thanks for taking a peek!
