RSC Challenge

I have been hanging out at RubberStampChat for awhile. It reminds me of SplitcoastStampers before it became so big. Well, they have a monthly challenge that I enjoy doing. Usually it is a sketch challenge and this month is no different. The company sponsoring the challenge this month is Scrolls Work. The challenge sketch can be found here. And here is my submission:

I am really into blues and greens again and added yellow to help "Springify" the card. I used the Spritz and Shimmer technique from the June/July 2007 newsletter. The sentiment is taken from a Scrolls Work stamp the I used the Huff technique so to only use the first two lines of the stamp, (the original stamp is about 3.5" long.) I plan on sending this to my deployed hubby, so I thought just these words were enough. :-)

I used my Copic YR12 marker to color the brads, so they really coordinate with the yellow cardstock and break up the Bashful Blue layer.

Since the front of the card is heavy with all those layers I added a layer to the inside. Brought some of the So Saffron inside to compliment the color scheme. (Sorry for the fuzzy picture, I couldn't get a clear shot no matter how many pictures I took.)

Stamps: Floral Peacock & Missing You (Scrolls Work); Ink: Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky & Cantaloupe (Memento), Basic Black (SU); Paper: Garden Green, Bashful Blue, So Saffron; Accessories: Water, Black detail EP, Perfect Pearls, silver brads, Copic YR12, CB tag & Corner die, Sunflower Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels ~ sentiment layer).
