The Second Colour Challenge

Hello again.
So it looks like my upline Sue will advertise the colours every Sunday. My plan is to create a colour challenge blog post and publish every Tuesday. That gives you time to create a card of your own before the following Tuesday. This is the plan anyway.

The colours this week are Pacific Point, Sahara Sand and Soft Sky. Here is my card:

This colour combination did make me think of the ocean - the sand, water and sky especially having experienced such elements during my recent trip to the Hawaiian Islands. My inspiration came from a card made by Amanda from The Craft Spa blog. The three pearls represent seashells one could find while on a walk. However, I didn't find any. And besides, we are no longer permitted to take anything from a beach. It's really frowned upon. We are to simply look and admire.

This card measures 5 x 5 in Soft Sky. I cut the Whisper White piece to 3 x 3 and the Sahara Sand cardstock was cut with the Layering Squares framelits (one of the scalloped framelits).

I created the sand by dragging the Sahara Sand ink pad across the paper a few times. I did the same to create the sky with the Soft Sky ink pad.

I stuck the Whisper White piece onto the card base with a small piece of removable tape. I inked up my images and stamped, being sure to go over the edges onto the card base.

I removed the Whisper White piece from the card base and glued it to the scalloped piece then adhered them to the card base lining up the images.

This technique is often referred to as double-time or triple-time (3 stamped layers) stamping. You can find a few videos on You Tube to see more of how it's done.

Now go ahead - take out these colours and make a card. And I'd love to see what you come up with.

Happy Stamping!
