Sunny Challenges Week 41

May 20, 2012

It was my turn to create the challenge this week and as well as providing a sketch, I want you to use the 2010-2012 In-Colours.  These colours will be retiring this year and I thought it appropriate that we use them a bit more before they go.  Concord Crush was my favourite colour when these in-colours first appeared but I haven’t used it so much of late.

I cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Stripes Embossing Folder.  I attached it to Whisper White card stock and then stamped the greeting from the Sincere Salutations stamp set in the bottom right hand corner using Concord Crush ink.  I wrapped this piece with Concord Crush 1/2″ Stitched Poly Ribbon, tied a knot and attached it to scored and folded Concord Crush card stock.  I inked the image from the Friends Never Fade stampset using Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto Whisper White card stock.  I cut this image using one the Framelits Labels Collection Dies and attached it to another label cut from Concord Crush card stock.  I attached the image panel to the card front using dimensionals.

Here is a close up of the image.  I actually don’t use this stampset as much as I should – it is a really pretty floral image – and I love how using the Stampin’ Write Markers lets you show up the detail of the flowers.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  I actually made this card quite some time ago but I made it using the wrong in-colours.  So I had to remake it using the right ones.  You would think that I could get my own challenge right!  Apparently not!  Anyway here is the same card made using the 2011-2013 in-colours.

Now its is time to visit Gwen, Vicky and Tanya to see what inspiration they have for you.  Once you have your card, scrap page or 3d item ready pop over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr Linky.  Can’t wait to see what you do with this gorgeous selection of in-colours.

Bye for now, Kris.
