Wonderful color combo challenge today on Splitcoast (CC365)! My card is almost entirely the blushing bride shade of pink w/ just a hint of the wasabi green (plus a little gold for the cross).

All images are DRS Designs. I stamped the lily cross image and added a little color. I did this really quickly since I knew I wanted a vellum overlay and some of the detail would be lost anyway. The stained glass oval was stamped on vellum w/ the gray ink and I sprinkled on the ep immediately (since it’s dye ink) and heat embossed it. I sponged on a little of the pink ink onto the back side of the vellum and added just a little darker pink w/ a marker. I embossed the greeting on the marbled pink c/s using the same ep and the black ink. The window was die cut out of the pink. Then I used an embossing folder so it wouldn’t look too plain. The vellum, then the image were attached underneath and then onto a 5.50 x 4.25 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my card, I turned the sketch on its side to better fit the images. I used parts of the super cute Meow Collage. I used a DTP (direct to paper) technique with chalk inks on white card stock. The images were stamped on top of this background. The cat was stamped again on white and I paper pieced the cut out cat and stripes onto the white image. I also added some paper pieced eyes I colored green onto to the pink version cat. The kitty stripes, nose & ears were colored with a white gel pen.

For the yarn balls, I masked the first stamping and stamped it again.  On top of the panel behind it, I stamped the Triangle Stripes across it. The Posy and Posy Greeting Center were stamped and cut out and I added some pink sorbet twine behind it. The large background was also done DTP and I used a large corner rounder on the corners. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

And here’s a look at my note book.
