Well dinner is cooking I thought I would run into my craft room to complete a challenge card. I had gone over to the Pals Paper Arts color challenge earlier in the week and loved the colors:
I knew these were the colors that I definitely wanted to use! Next I needed a sketch, so I of course went on over to Freshly Made Sketches and they did not disappoint! Here is their great sketch:
I combined the two great challenges and here is what I came up with:
I really loved how it came out. I almost added a sentiment but after playing around with it, I thought it looked better as it was. I did a really cool technique on it called "ghosting". It gives the image an almost 3D look. You stamp in a light color (i.e. Baja Breeze), then use your Stamp-a-ma-jig to align the image slightly to the left and stamp again in a darker color (i.e. Not Quite Navy. Not sure if you can tell from the picture but I watermarked the panel in the center with the leaf image. My recipe is as follows:
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Versamark
Stamp Set: Just Believe (I really need to use that more!!)
Ribbon: Baja Breeze Seam Binding.
