As I found I can't sleep, again.... I decided to check out the SCS challenge for the day. The challenge was to only use and do things from this list:
Up to 2 backgrounds
Up to 2 colors/kinds of ribbons
Sponging, tearing, distressing
Punches – to make tabs only
Ink: soft subtles, rich regals,neutrals (brown is a neutral) – or similar if not SU
Paper: solid color cardstock – soft subtles, rich regals, neutrals
Immediately this card popped into my head. I've had this idea in my head for quite a while, but haven't had or felt the need to try it out. This was the perfect chance. I started at the top right hand side using Stazon ink to stamp the flowers. I masked them off and moved down toward the left hand side. I then cut the top edge out and colored them in by sponging. Once the flowers were done I masked them off and stamped the background. I finished it off with the sentiment and ribbon.
Here is an open view of the card. Enjoy!
