Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #6
Wow, here we are at week 6! I hope you'll come and play - I think we have a fabulous challenge for you today. I found this photograph at Dandelion Ranch and just loved the colors and dramatic style of it. I combined my card with SCS sketch challenge #232 - a very cool layout.
I kept the background white to imitate the inspiration piece. My other colors are riding hood red, basic black, and kiwi kiss. I got my preview order from the new catalog and decided that Razzle Dazzle was the perfect set for this challenge.
For the center panel I first stamped the image in kiwi then in red, cutting out parts of the image to lay on top of the kiwi. I had to have green leaves, of course! I'm really excited that the new In Colors come in markers - if only they would go back and make them for the past ICs too... Anyway, I also colored over some of the kiwi with black marker. I should have just colored over the ink on the stamp, but by the time I thought of that it was already too late! (I don't know why my kiwi looks so washed out in the photo - it's a new camera and that's what I got!)
The small squares also use a stamp from Razzle Dazzle, and I layered all the squares with Nestabilities. I added a strip of DP from the Bella Rose pack, some kiwi ribbon, and a sentiment that comes from the new level 3 hostess set Kind & Caring Thoughts. I really love how it turned out - I think this is going to be a favorite set of mine from the new catalog.
Be sure to check out the cards made by all the Divine Divas for this challenge!
Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC6. Have fun and look for the next challenge on July 2!
