Today the Design Team is creating something with Color Blending AND using some type of newsprint or sheet music background paper on our cards. If you want to play along your only requirement is use a Serendipity image and type or music background. Find all the details HERE for Challenge SSCB #28 on the Serendipity Challenge Blog. Make sure and check out the cards the other ladies came up with today:
The first time I used the new Shamrock Die I made a Valentine Card with it. So I thought I would try it out in green today! I used foam tape to pop up the newsprint panel and the shamrock for some dimension.
You can see above my color blending... pretty primitive today! I used a dictionary type paper from Authentique. I was short on time and just took my ink pads direct to paper.... dragging both colors around randomly.
I added some banner elements and mounted my "color blended" newsprint piece and cut it all out using Spellbinder's Labels 8. The card base is made with Decorative Labels Eight Die Set. A few little adhesive crystals and of course I could not resist a tiny bow to embellish.
On the inside I added the St. Pat's sentiment stamped in Memento Bamboo Green.
