Inspiration Challenge #37: Company C bedding
I always have lots of photos of bedding saved for my challenges, and I decided to use one today. This is the Verona bedding by Company C. I just love the mix of patterns and colors here.
For my color combination I chose kiwi kiss, pacific point, bordering blue, and close to cocoa, with just a little white for the stamped panel. I thought these colors looked very cool together - it ended up being a little challenging, though! That's a lot of colors to work into a single card. I loved the sketch challenge for today - Roxie gave us two sketches! This card uses the second sketch, and as soon as I'm done posting I'm off to try the first one.
I started out by stamping the Paisley background with Versamark on bordering blue cardstock, then I embossed it with clear EP. The sentiment from Wonderful Words was embossed the same way on pacific point cardstock. I used the open leaf and solid flower images from Wonderful You and stamped in kiwi kiss, close to cocoa, and pacific point.
To put the whole thing together, I used a bordering blue card base, a background panel from the kiwi kiss patterned papers, close to cocoa layers for everything, and three Making Memories copper brads. Sigh, this was so close to SUO but I just had to use those brads! I popped the stamped panel up on dimensionals.
I hope you'll come play my challenge - I'd love to see your take on this gorgeous bedding set! This week's SCS keyword is DSIC37, and don't forget to leave me a link here!
