I seem to be saying that a lot lately... better late than never, I'm bringing you my sample card, for the new challenge at the TSG blog!
It's brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week- Melissa! She has challenged us to make a card using the gorgeous photo as your inspiration.
I'm not big on purples and lavenders, as you know, but that's what the challenges are for, making us step out of our beaten tracks. Right?? :)
I went for the clean & simple style, and used the embossing with dies technique, combined with negative die cutting. I saw it popping up on the fellow stampers' blogs from time to time, but I was scared away to try it myself... well there you go :) I had the guts to do so now.
I was inspired by the layout of the inspiration photo, in particular the horizontal placement of colours in the background. Then I took the theme quite literally, and pulled out the Bon Appetit set for a simple invitation. I placed my focal point roughly where the plate is on the photo, and used the peach colour as it appears there as well. Quite an unusual combo, but it works :)
Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts (lavender), white; stamps: There She Goes (Bon Appetit); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versa Magic (Pink Grapefruit); Nestabilities Labels 18; ribbon: Kaisercraft; button; corner rounder: EK Success
