First up was a colour challenge - Basic Black, Almost Amethyst, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White & abit of Silver. I had a hard time adding black & had to settle for the stamped image & sentiment being the only black used!
I was feeling abit challenged, so CASEd the layout for this card from the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue - page 41. I find the catalogue a constant source of inspiration for layouts, colour combinations & embellishment ideas. If you would like a copy for FREE, then send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org I will give one away to the first 3 people who email me!
Here is a close up of the paper piercing & the cute little owl popped up on dimensionals. I coloured the image in with an aquapainter & inkpad & although it is not particularly good it still looks OK
