1.0 Sarah's Stamping Style: Sketchbook Saturday Challenge and Totally Hues

Sketchbook Saturday Challenge and Totally Hues

I'm getting game now! Today I have incorporated two challenges into the one card. I didn't think I was going to pull this one off, but I am quite pleased with the result. I was very unsure about using these colours together (Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze and Tempting Turquoise) but in the end I think I have found a good balance.

I have used the first sketch from Chupa's new challenge, Sketchbook Saturday, (I just love this girls work!) combined with the Totally Hues Colour Challenge.   

 I have added Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla as my neutral colours. 

I started with a Tempting Turquoise base and used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Baja cardstock to add interest to my background.  I have used the a la carte All a Flutter stamp and the Artistic Etchings set. The sentiment is from the lovely Well Scripted from the Summer Mini. I just love this set!! 

I have stamped the butterfly in black Staz On and coloured it using stamp pads and Blender Pens. I then used Crystal Effects on the top to brighten the colours and give a glossy effect. 

The sentiment was layered onto a tag made with a Lots a Tags Sizzlit. 

I have decorated the inside very simply.

A late addition: These cards have also been entered into 'The Kraft Journal's' Spring Fling Challenge.  The brief is to use Kraft cardstock and to use the inspiration of the Spring Fling theme.
