The current challenge, starting today (and spanning over two weeks), is to make a Get Well card ... there is no accompanying sketch this time, so let your imagination run free! This is quite a timely challenge for me; I've scheduled this blog post for when I'll (hopefully) be coming home from hospital, after surgery.
I am in LOVE with Stampin' Up!'s Stippled Blossoms stamp set - a "two-step" stamp set that gives a "wow" result every time it's inked up. Once I'd decided I wanted to use Primrose Petals (one of the gorgeous In Colors from Stampin' Up!), I consulted my trusty Color Coach - that suggested Pink Pirouette would pair well with my chosen colour. It's not a combination I would've thought to use, but I am quite happy with the result. I've incorporated a couple of Basic Gray accents, as I thought black stamping would be too harsh.
Here's my card for this challenge:
Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Perfectly Penned
Card: Primrose Petals, Pink Pirouette, Naturals White
DSP: Basic Gray Patterns Designer Series Paper, Twitterpated Designer Series Paper
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Primrose Petals, Basic Gray, Certainly Celery and Wild Wasabi stampin' pads
Other: Labels Collection Framelits, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Stampin' Pierce Mat and Paper-Piercing tool, Basic Pearls, sponge dauber, Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon, paper snips, Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate, Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue dots
