So here we are again! This week's Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop is "dark"!! lol No, silly! I mean Basic Black!
So hello hoppers from Helen's blog! I know it was fun over there! I always have fun there! Hope this is as much fun! Then join the fun at Liz's blog! Another fun girl! Can you tell it was almost 50 degrees F here today!!! lol I'm a bit giddy! Finally! Just in time for more snow! Ugh! But celebrating today anyway!
So here's this week's challenge:
Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay
Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Added Piece - Add Metallic - could be glimmer paper, foil sheets or sequin trim
I love the first combo, so here's my card:
Now I decided to go with another challenge this week for inspiration! These colors are cool together, but I needed a jump start this week!
So I visited over at Sketch Frenzy Friday for the design. Here's their original design:
Now I think this is a close approximation. Remember, these sketches are to get you started. It's a design. You should stay within the design, but creativity counts!
When you visit the blog you'll see some cool ideas! Be sure to pop over!
I used my new punch from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog! Love this little
Banner Punch & so glad it will continue into the new Big Catalog!!
I stamped & embossed all the little banners. I also used the cool
Decorative Dots Embossing folder on the Basic Black background. Hard to tell in the picture! It's becoming a favorite! Another carry over into the new catalog!!!
Now here's the thing. The added piece, when I read metallic, I kinda missed the after words! I used the Encore Metallic Silver Ink Pad for the Just for You sentiment! I tried to get it to shine in the light, then tried to edit it a bit so you can really see it, but didn't work so well! It's shiny in person tho! So while I do have some metallic, maybe not enough? Hmm. Oh well!!! I tried!!
Anyway, be sure to check back this week for my entry on the Can You Case It challenge. Hope you visited last week!!!
