CCMC171 Vintage Birthday
I created this card using this week’s CCMC171 Color Challenge at Create with Connieand Mary- at first this color challenge seemed to be a difficult one, but the Design Team samples were so inspirational and once I started "playing", the colors seemed to go great together! If you have not stopped by their site this week, check them out!
To create this card:
On a piece of River Rock cardstock, create the collage background using River Rock, Baja Breeze and Bravo Burgundy (stamping off for the Bravo Burgundy). Once the collage is finished, stamp the dress form in Bravo Burgundy ("full strength" ink:-)).
Use the Big Shot™ with the Oval Decorative Label Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and line up the dress form image prior to embossing the collage panel. Tear the edges and reserve a piece for the sentiment.
Stamp the sentiment using Bravo Burgundy and punch out with the Large Oval Punch. Layer with Bravo Burgundy and Baja Breeze (also punched with the Large Oval Punch). Using a Sponge Dauber, sponge the edges of the collage panel and sentiment with Bravo Burgundy to distress.
Spray both the collage and sentiment with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol). Layer onto an embossed panel of Bravo Burgundy, add the Baja Breeze Seam Binding bow and pearls to finish off the card.
