I wanted to try entering some other types of challenges and found Freshly Made Sketches and Colour Throwdown through the blogs of some of the designers I follow. As it was very late last night, I decided to see if I could combine the two into one card.
I don't do many layered cards these days, so was nice to do that again. Its not very often I use green or brown in my cards either, so was good to get out of my comfort zone!
This took a lot of playing around with paper pieces but really like what the result was. The patterned paper is from Teresa Collins 'Save the Date' and the brown strip and green paper is from Echo Park 'This and That'. I had this die cut shape leftover from my shaker card (on previous post) and thought it would be perfect for this card. I stamped it with a sentiment from Kaisercraft and outlined with a black gel pen. Pearls from Kaisercraft and enamel dots from Teresa Collins finished this card perfectly.
It was great to use colours not normally my style so will definitely do this colour challenge again and the same with the sketch. I have so many gorgeous paper pads, I need to be using them!!!!!
Now to link up card no. 3!
