Sunny Challenge 92/13

November 10, 2013

The current Sunny Challenge has been set by Vicky and all we need to do is use Pool Party in our creations.  I decided to scrap a photo of my grandson Ethan which has been sitting on my desk for such a long time.004

I started with Whisper White 12 x 12″ card and stamped the small dots from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using Pool Party ink down the right hand half of the card.  I stamped the striped image over the top, again using Pool Party ink and then added the splotchy image over the top using Island Indigo ink.  I found this combination on my Colour Coach, which is such an amazing tool for finding just the right colour combinations.  I trimmed down an A4 sheet of Whisper White .5cm on each length, then punched down one long side using the Chevron Border Punch.  I attached the Whisper White card to an A4 sheet of Pool Party card and attached it to the left hand side of the page.  I added a Basic Black mat to the photo of Ethan and attached it over the Whisper White card.  I used MDS to create the panel with his name and the date, printed it out and used an Oval Framelit to cut it out.  I cut a larger oval from Pool Party card and used oval template from the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack to pierce a row of holes around it.  This is attached to the page using dimensionals002

I love the look of this scrap page, the Pool Party works really well with this black and white photo and takes nothing away from Ethan’s gorgeous, cheeky smile.005

For some more inspiration pop on over to Sunny Challenges and check out what the rest of the design team has created.  Once you have made your card, scrap page or 3d item, pop back and add it to Mr. Linky.  I really hope you can find the time to join us for the current challenge.

Bye for now,

    Love the simplicity of this scrap page, Kris! Gorgeous grandson too!
    Could I ask what cutting system (if any) you use with the MDS? Cheers, Ann

      Hi Ann, the punch is in the current SU Occasions Catalogue and the ovals were cut using the Ovals Collection Framelits from SU.

    Love this page Kris. You should be very happy with the final result, but then it does help with such a cheeky subject to work with. Gorgeous photo too Sarah!
