Get Well Wishes for a Color, Sketch and Inspiration Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers!!

I had a chance to stamp in the wee hours this morning and decided to create a card using the Pals Paper Arts PPA262 Color Challenge along with the Just Add Ink JAI274 Inspiration Photo  (I was inspired by the natural elements along with the contrast and bit of green). 

I  also used the FMS198 Sketch Challenge for the layout (but I am too late to link to the actual challenge at FMS :-)). 

Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fabulous galleries!

This card was fairly easy to create- use a Sponge Dauber to sponge Pool Party and Mint Macaron Classic Ink onto a Chalk Talk label created from Whisper White cardstock.  

Stamp the goose image using  Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto another piece of Whisper White cardstock, color with Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink and Stampin’ Write Markers, fussy cut out the goose and ink the grass only from the goose stamp using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker onto the sponged tag. 

Adhere the goose image using Stampin' Dimensionals® onto the tag, layer another Chalk Tag tag from Basic Black cardstock behind the  focal image tag and add the additional white layered tag per the sketch.

Add  a few strips of Basic Black cardstock (I used scraps and punched the ends with the Hexagon Punch) onto the embossed Tip Top Taupe background panel, trim and mount onto Mint  Macaron, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card front.

Use the Bow Builder Punch to create a bow from Basic Black cardstock bow, add to the tag along with a retired Pool Party button.

Mount the layered tags to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals® and the sentiment to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Wetlands, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink:  Stāz-On® Jet Black, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe; Stampin’ Write Marker- Tip Top Taupe, Basic Black

Paper: Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Basic Black, Whisper White

Accessories: Big Shot™, Chalk Talk Framelits™, Boho Chic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Punches- Bow Builder, Hexagon;  retired Pool Party Sycamore Street button

Thanks again for visiting- I hope all of you have a terrific Tuesday!!

The goose looks real enough to walk away from the tag!. Love your card, Julie!

That Canada goose has never looked so strikingly beautiful before and your fussy-cutting skills are as superb as all your others! I love this card.
