Hey everyone! Before I get into the details of today's card, I want to mention a couple COOL things that I think you might be interested in...
First, for those of you who participate in SCS challenges, you know Jessica (knutsen24) on SCS....talented, always leaves sweet comments for everyone, and she's the one with that avatar that cracks me up every time I see it, LOL! Anyhooo...she just started her own stamp company....and let me tell ya, her new stamps are GORGEOUS!! You can even preorder her stamps right now at a DISCOUNTED price. Check out her blog HERE for all the details. You won't be sorry you did. :)
Also, if you own the new JustRite monogram stampers....they're running a contest right now that sounds pretty cool. You can check out the details HERE. They're giving away PRIZES!! :)
Okay, so onto my card for today's SCS Color Challenge (Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, and Blush Blossom). I also used Jen Del Muro's Sketch For You To Try for the layout. Cool sketch! I'm always drawn to "block" sketches like this. :)
I stamped the party dress in Close to Cocoa classic ink onto Blush Blossom CS, White CS, and Ruby Red CS. I cut out the Ruby bodice and the White skirt, and then popped them both up on dimensionals over the one on the Blush Blossom panel. I inked up my Pretty Petals background stamp with Blush Blossom Classic Ink and then "thumped" a Close to Cocoa marker all over the rubber before stamping onto the CS. I added some clear Sakura sparkle pen to the white skirt.
I stamped some more Pretty Petals on the inside of the card, again with the "thumping" (love that word) technique, vertically along the left and right sides.
