Seashore Sketch – CCMC #249

This week’s challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary is to use a sketch.

Now I’d like to think it was just a case of following the sketch and… ta da… job done! Ha, ha! Things are never that simple, well at least not for me. If I tell you I started with a green/yellow/white idea and then progressed to using papers from the Print Poetry stack, you’ll wonder how I ended up creating this:

I’m wondering too! I can only blame it on my current seashore obsession. I stamped the seashell on to the Whisper White using Marina Mist, then layered up all the papers, using the sketch to assist, before running the ribbon across. I stamped the label, taken from the Pop-Up Posies kit, and then added the seashell and starfish images. I’ve curled these too give a bit of added dimension. I also used Dimensionals to apply the label.

Love this beachy colour combination and adore the little pearls.

Just for You – CCMC#246

This week’s challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary is another colour challenge requiring the use of Island Indigo,  Calypso Coral and Real Red. Again, the supplies available to me were limited but I quite like having to think about how to combine what I do have. On this occasion all I had in Calypso Coral was the flower in the Pop-Up Posies Kit and for Island Indigo I had ribbon and the Sycamore Street designer papers.

Love the Real Red with the Indigo Island 🙂 I cut  and layered the paper and cardstock and then added three layers of petals from the Pop-Up Posies set. I decided to use a Real Red button for the centre instead of one of the brads in the pack.

I ran a strip of ribbon down the side and added a little bow plus a flower using a stamp from the Spring Sampler set and some Real Red ink.

The sentiment is also stamped in Real Red.
