Another Week Goes By....

This week I've combined the Kristina's colour challenge and the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You  for this card.

This is Kristina's colour inspiration - Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and I've chosen Summer Sun.  Pretty bright colours, aren't they?






This is what I came up with.

I started with the idea to sponge the colours on the embossed (with black EP) heart from Always (from the Spring Mini).  The heart came out well, then next thing was to decide what to do with it!  That's where Kazan's 2S4U sketch came into it - I thought the heart would work well as the accent.  Actually, the layout is SO versatile, I'm going to be using it again!

The card came together as a few different elements, the black scalloped embossed edge was next, followed by the embossed Pumpkin Panel.  Well, that actually took 2 goes, originally I thought it would look good black (I used Staz On) but it just wasn't dark enough so I tried clear embossed.  The sentiment panel took a few goes too! 

I have a few other workshop samples to share too, but I've got to iron my clothes for work tomorrow, so it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Thanks for looking, hope you've all had a great weekend.

Sponging over the embossed image is my all time favorite thing to do with my stamps! I think it looks beautiful, especially on this heart!! I love the way your colors run together just perfectly... Great job!!
