Hello! So for this sketch challenge, I decided to use Dino days stamp set. Initially, I was going to use a dinosaur, but when I saw the palm tree, I went with that, and it developed into a tropical theme!
I chose blackberry bliss card for my base, then a layer of blushing bride. The layer of granny apple green I embossed with the Coastal weave embossing folder. The sentiment (on coastal cabana) is actually a sticker from my tropical memories and more pack! As the palm tree made me think tropical- that’s what I used!
I used the ‘triangles’ pattern from the Dino dies as a mask, and used a sponge to sponge whisper white craft ink onto my base card, just above and just below my blushing bride layer. I didn’t think it showed up enough so, I used white powder and heat embossed! It made it stand out against the blackberry bliss. I went for more (and why not?!), and used my blends to colour a few of the triangles. I used granny apple green, Bermuda bay, and rich razzleberry. This really added to the tropical theme!
I’m very happy with how this card turned out! It wasn’t what I’d originally envisioned but I like the journey it went on!! (A tropical holiday?!)
I finished it off with a few rhinestones, which I coloured with my granny apple green stampin blend.
When I took the photo, I held it up against the gorgeous blue sky….I think it added to the tropical vibes!
I hope you like my card today! You can see what everyone else created with the sketch here
