I choose to use Indian Corn Blue as my "Any Blue". Here is my card that I created.
I used the July Stamp of the Month available starting tomorrow. It is called D1458 American Celebration. I also used a retired stamp called B1332 Good Times for the sentiment. The background paper is a sheet from a retired set called Independence. It is Bamboo with words written on it. I stamped the large fireworks image using Barn Red ink. I then stamped the smaller star fireworks image using Indian Corn Blue ink. I added Z1313 Glitz glue gel to make it sparkle. I stamped the rocket image using Barn Red ink on Colonial white scrap paper and the stars using Indian Corn blue, then I cut them out and dabbed a little bamboo ink with my sponge to distress the paper a little and mounted it to the card front using the 3-D foam tape. I did the same for the sentiment and then mounted it on top of Indian Corn Blue Cardstock. I added the three buttons to the right of the sentiment. Then I added a little more glitter glitz on top of the stars for that extra sparkle.
Give this color challenge a try it is perfect for the up coming Independence Day Celebration!
Have a happy 4th!
This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges they are looking for wedding cards or projects. This is the season of love and weddings as summer is approaching.
Here is my entry. It is a standard sized card -
I used White Daisy cardstock for the card base. Then I stamped the background images using black ink. The stamp set that I used is B1376 Wings WOTG set. Then I cut a piece of white daisy cardstock at 3" x 4 1/4" and stamped the swirls using Sunny Yellow ink. The swirls are from D1470 Dreams Come True stamp set. Then I stamped the word Love using black ink. D1445 Amore stamp set. Then lastly I stamped the border image using Grey Flannel ink. That image is from C1450 Eclectic Edges. I added a matt around it using sunny yellow cardstock. I made my very first ever rolled flower using sunny yellow organdy ribbon. I added grey pearls from the Z1335 Licorice Opaques package to the flower and along the border.
