I got a little time to stamp yesterday so I thought I would play a long with two of my favourite challenges. I also thought it was time to actually stamp with one of the sets (Best Friends Forever) that I received at Convention (I still had all of them in my bag :) Create with Connie and Mary is having a Sketch Challenge this week and over at the Inkspirations site they have an interesting Colour Challenge.
Now you think it would be easy to come up with a card since I already had my colour combo, layout and stamp set already to go- WRONG,lol! It took me a while to come up with my final card but in the end I am pleased with the result, hope you like it too.
As I have mentioned several times before purple is really not a colour that I normally gravitate towards, but I LOVE Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz, so I though what the heck. These colours really do look great together and maybe I will even try this combo again. For the base of the card I used Concord Crush, and then layer on a piece of Pear Pizzazz that had been stamped with the leafy image tone on tone and then stamped the "BBF" with Whisper White Craft Ink. I then stamped a Concord Crush strip of card stock using the craft ink as well. The patterned pice of Paper is from the Paisly Petals Designer Series Paper and I stamped it tone on tone using the dotted image from the set.
Next I layered on a piece of Peach Parfait that had been punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and also stamped on with the leafy image, this time I used Calypso Coral Classic Ink to add just a touch of contrast. The butterfly
was die cut using the Beautiful Butterflies Die, Textured Whisper White card stock and my Big Shot. I stamped the florish image on it with Concord Crush Ink. All of the card stock and paper on this card was sponged with Whisper White Craft Ink and the edges destressed using the Cutter Kit. The ribbon was pleated and attached using Sticky Strip and the brad is from the Antiques Brads, I also topped it with a Pearl Jewel.
