 I can't believe how fast this week has gone by! It's already time for another As You See It Challenge! Didn't I just do one a day or two ago? This week Design Team member, Jan, created an absolutely gorgeous Colour Challenge for everyone to play along with. Take a look at this:

Isn't that beautiful? What are you going to do with that? So dramatic! I actually made two cards. One of them tried to mimic the photo, but it looked a bit too simple for a Design Team card so I made a second sample. Here's the first one:

  • I started with a Basic Gray card base and added a panel of Petal Pink, embossed with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.
  • I collage stamped a Whisper White panel with images from the Very Versailles stamp set. I started with the sentiment at the bottom. I wanted to be sure I got that straight before doing all the work with the rest of the images. It was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • The script in the background was stamped in second generation Basic Gray ink, as were the splatter marks.
  • The vine leaves were stamped in full strength Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then the panel was sponge with Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo ink and mounted on a backing of Basic Black cardstock.
  • The embellishments were leftover retired Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.
