Happy Saturday, everyone! It is time for another challenge with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C152). Andrea is the hostess for September. This week she has a color challenge for us. We are to use Halloween colors purple,orange, and green. I do not think it has to be a Halloween themed project or card unless you want it to be.
I am using Verve's Tag Time, Always on My Mind, and Dream Big stamp sets. I am also using Verve's Scalloped Flowers, Tagged Rectangle, Dreamy Leaves, and Pennant Trim Cut Above Dies.
I sort of got carried away with all these fun colors. I stamped the focal tag frames with both Marmalade and Dusty Concord Ranger inks. I softly stamped onto the green colored felt the Dream Big leaves and die cut with the Dreamy Leaves dies.(Not sure if one should ever stamp onto felt, but the ink police were nowhere in sight. Ha! Besides, I love the soft look). I layered the larger scalloped flowers die using purple felt with a corrugated cardboard smaller scallop flowers die that I heavily ink distressed to coordinate with the tags background panel. To the textured felt and corrugated cardboard scallops I added some chunky jumbo coordinated buttons topped with some twine. I must use my chunky jumbo buttons more. Love this look! The pennant trim was die cut with polka dotted gold glitter card stock that I inked with marmalade and dusty concord to die to match. This trim is actually pretty sparkly in real life. I finished the card with a big loopy twine bow attached to the layered Tagged Rectangle die. I am using Deconstructed Sketch No. 67.
