Mojo Monday Week 92

I had some stars left over from Kristina's colour challenge so decided to put them to work on a sketch challenge while I had everything out. My card is based on this Mojo Monday sketch but still using the challenge colours.

The gray looks a bit blue in this photo but rather than try and fix it you will just have to take my work that I used Basic Gray!

Stamps: Classic Stars Stampin' Around Wheel, Three Little Words
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Really Rust, Basic Gray, Designer Paper
Ink: More Mustard, Really Rust
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Word Window Punch

Colour Inspiration Challenge #55

If you want to play along click on the title of this post and it will take you straight to Kristina's challenge page.

My nephews 17th birthday is coming up early next month so I thought these colours would work well for a card for him. I stamped the Classic Stars Stampin' Around wheel on a strip of Very Vanilla in More Mustard and scrap Very Vanilla in both More Mustard and Really Rust. I then cut out stars in both colours and varying sizes and mounted them with dimensionals on both the wheeled strip and off it onto the card, I love the feeling this gives the card.

I have yet again used Embrace Life, I love this sentiment, it seems to work with just about everything I do! As this is his last year at school I thought I would write on the inside "and shoot for the stars". I hope he likes it :-)

The photo below shows some of the dimension on the card, thanks for looking and have a great day.

Stamps: Stampin' Around Wheel Classic Stars, Embrace Life

Lovely As A Tree

I have been playing with backgrounds a bit lately - this is my attempt at a brayered background.

I am quite pleased with the end result but I think i need to practice more as the graduation from one colour to the next isn't as smooth as i would like. Hehe, the little bird in the sky is to disguise the fact that I touched a dauber loaded with Baic Brown ink on the card :-)
