I love Wednesday's. They spell everything I love about being a creative person. I get to create, I get to share it with my lovely blog readers, and I also get to connect with lovely Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends around the world. Yes Wednesday's make me very happy.
Today's card for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team is one of my favourite colour combinations, with some grunge, texture and embossing thrown in.
My base card is Bermuda Bay, and I have used the Dictionary background stamp inked up with Bermuda Bay ink and applied the card on top of the stamp with uneven pressure to get a distressed background effect. The black and white paper banner was then attached and I embossed some of the splotches from the Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge stamp set over the paper and base card using gold embossing powder.
Finally I added some additional texture with the Gold Sequin Trim, Calypso Coral Pom Pom trim and a couple of hearts from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. You can view all the products I have used on this project using the links at the bottom of the post.
Here is the sketch Sandi gave us to work with this week.
Now it's time to whip around the world and see what all the other members of the Stamping and Blogging Design Team have created with this week's sketch.
