I struggled with the Color Story Inspiration case file no 230. It isn't my "go to" colours and I tried to use the January Hip Kit as my kits have been heaping up and that makes me feel bad. Here is the case file:
This is the best I could come up with:
Supply list: Patterned papers: January 2017 Hip Kit Exclusives, Hazelwood (One Canoe Two); Cardstock: Bo Bunny, American Craft, Worldwin Papers; Letter Stickers: Love foam sticker by American Craft; Phrase Stickers: Tim Holtz; Wood Veneer: Lawn Fawn, Studio Calico; Paperclip: Cocoa Vanilla Studio; Metal Stars: Finnabair; Rubber charm: Amy Tangerine; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye, Cocoa Vanilla; Die cuts: Pink Paislee; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink: Distress Ink (Antique Linen); Stencil: Heidi Swapp; Other: Gelatos.
This is how I solved the case file:
The Scheme: All 5 colours used.
Evidence: stars, wood, metal, rubber charms, phrase stickers
Testimony: I used the Carry on Tuesday prompt from #27. "Some love lasts a liftetime. True love lasts forever." I used it as my title.
I broke the white background by stenciling stars with distress ink through a stencil. I love the added texture of the sage green hand stitching.
I applied some gelatos to the foam "love"sticker and made it an ombre effect.
One can never have too many stars for boy pages.
I am happy that I could make one of my kits work with this colour challenge. I did dig into my cardstock to mat my photo on the various colours.
I love this Becky Higgins date stamp with it's added phrase.
I used this sketch by Laura Whitaker. I adore her sketches.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope that I could inspire you to play along with the challenges.
