We have a new challenge for you at Double Trouble Paper Crafting! You may remember that I am a Crazy Cousin (Guest Designer) this month, and I am enjoying myself!
Our challenge is a fun 3-2-1 Recipe, so I hope you'll be inspired! I admit I had to read this one a few times before I figured it out so be careful not to get into trouble! Please head over to Challenge 59 for all the details and inspiration from the Design Team, but in the meantime, here's a brief summary:
My card features all three Things for this challenge (Double Trouble lists the Things out of order, so I've followed the same format):
Thing 1: 3-2-1 Recipe - 3 Colours, 2 embellishments, and 1 Stamped Sentiment More than One Year Old.
Thing 3: Using the sketch below, create a project using no circles, ovals, or rounded corners. Note that bling and small embellishments can be any shape.
Thing 2: Participate in Retro Rubber's Sketch #137 if Things 1 and 3 have been completed.
Here's my card!
Here's my card!
I stamped the watermelon kitty (Newton's Nook - Newton's Melon), coloured him with markers, and fussy-cut so I could pop him up on foam tape. I die-cut the stitched triangle and did some Distress Ink blending (Mowed Lawn, Shabby Shutters, Picked Raspberry) to simulate a watermelon slice. I spritzed with water and stamped two seeds (STAMPlorations Layered Watermelon) in black.
My background was created months ago with Distress Inks or Distress Oxides using the ink-smooshing technique, and I thought it coordinated well with my colour combo (pink, green, yellow). I die-cut with a stitched rectangle (Gina Marie Designs). I added a vertical strip of black washi tape according to the sketch. I stamped the sentiment in black (Unity Stamp Cling Rubber Itty Bitty Collection - One in a Melon). I've had this stamp for over 6 years so it's definitely older than one year! To finish the card, I adhered my two embellishments (black sequins and magenta flower sequins). The angled photo below shows the colour of the flower sequins better.
I hope you'll be inspired to join our challenge! I am looking forward to seeing what you make!
