This is the card that I came up with for Diane's Sunday Sketch Challenge
The first photo is taken with my digital camera and the second one is scanned. Not sure which one I like better...
I'm in a bit of a "creative slump" but forced myself to sit down tonight and think about the stamps and paper that I set out on Sunday to do Diane's challenge.
Again I don't like the colour combo nor the stamp set (and I don't like the layout either - no offence Diane!). However, I did get an idea and just went with it.
I used Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise and Orchid Opulence as well as Tag Time as per Diane's challenge.
The problem for me with the colours is the BRIGHTNESS and the CONTRAST. So I tried to disguise them with background stamps.
I used CANVAS and DOTTED background stamps from Stampin' Up! The word Baby came from one of the AYCs (also retiring this year). I also added white card stock, white craft ink and my white gel pen.
Both the baby and the umbrella are layered on (that is I stamped them on white, cut them out and then added them to the image for more of a 3D effect).
I'm very happy with the results and although I didn't like the challenge criteria at first I'm finding that this is helping me to think outside my little box and try new things.
Thank you Diane for challenging me!
