So I really got on a creative kick this weekend and I am really so excited about how awesome this card turned out! I'll admit, the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches didn't get me too excited, but I really love their challenges, so I thought I had to work something awesome out and here is what I came up with: the sketch:
First off, I had my set picked out (ok, it was already out from my Friday Quickie post) but I wanted something really fun and bright for spring. I decided I wanted my printed paper to be black polkadots (I happened to have them sitting out from another project--I'll post it later in the week!) So I wanted a great pop of color and these looked fantastic together: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and of course, Black! LOVE how these look and I think the card really showcased the colors together! Check out the video
As you saw in the video I embossed the Pool Party panel with the Brick Wall Folder, but my sample here has the Large Polkadot folder--I like this better, to be honest! You never know till you try!
The background has the marker spritzing (oh my fav!!) in black and some silver metallic thread. I also added the Wink of Stella on my sample, which is fantastic (though really hard to capture in photos!).
I think this turned out fantastic! Thanks so much FMS for the inspiration! I love playing along with your challenges!
