I am not a huge fun of Almost Amethyst!! I think I've only used the color twice, once for a SCS Color Challenge and for today's card. This weeks colors for the Color Throwdown are Almost Amethsyt, Certainly Celery and Basic Black. I was more than a little worried when I saw them. This card took longer than normal but I'm really happy with the results. Yes, I know you are probably getting tired of Dreams Du Jour but I LOVE IT!!! It's such a great stamp set. I'll try to use another stamp soon I promise!?! I stamped the image in black and used my SU markers to color it. I don't have the Soft Subtles markers so I used Green Galore and Orchid Opulence for the coloring. I think it looks okay though. The layout is for this weeks sketch challenge at SCS. The panels are from an unknown decorative paper but it matched the colors so well. The only element I'm a little unsure of is the ribbon. At first glance I thought it matched pretty well but I think it's maybe a bit too bright. The sentiment along the bottom is from Short and Sweet. I thought the two stamps went together pretty well. Wish big and grow great dreams!!! I added some brads and some piercing and mounted the circle and the main panel on foam tape for some dimension.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
