Hello again. I'm back to post my little card for today's new Stamp Something challenge. This week we're having a color challenge... blue and white. Sounds so easy, but for me a two color challenge is very challenging. I guess that's the point, huh!! Well... here's what I came up with...
Now... while I struggled with this challenge (stop laughing!!), I like what I ended up with. I worked up a smaller card than usual (4.5 x 4.5) as I didn't want to overwhelm the image and wanted to keep it simple. I paper-pieced both the dress and the wallpaper. So not much coloring to do on this one.
All these papers are from the BG marrakech series. The background paper is one of my faves. I don't really know why... it just appeals to me. To get the image to lay flat over the rick-rack ribbon, I glued about four layers of navy cs scraps rather than using pop dots or something like that. That way the color blends perfectly and I don't have to use markers on the white dots' edges to hide them.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Whimsy Stamps. It'll be well worth your time if you decide to join in with us.
