HSS Color Splash Challenge #18



We have a NEW color splash challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this morning. A very sheik and sophisticated color combo. My inspiration came from a card I saw by AnnetteMac on Splitcoaststampers.

Stampin' Sentiments insider tips: 
  • Using a textured plate is an easy way to add immediate texture, not to mention a WOW effect, like I did on the Whisper White Top Note die.
  • Want to know how I tied the ribbon through the card? I have a step by step tutorial here
  • Don't be discouraged if your vision doesn't come out exactly as planned. I originally wanted a black satin ribbon, but didn't have enough. Instead the Kraft taffeta I had worked perfectly.
  • The stamps are from the set Vintage Labels which was part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion. They are no longer available but you could possibly find it on one of the auction sites.
  • If you don't happen to have Gold Emboss Powder handy, a Gold Encore Stamp Pad would do the trick.
  • How did I get the sentiment centered in the Gold oval image? The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig made it a snap!
Inspired by what you've seen? We'd love to see your creation over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. For more inspiration take a quick peek at the other designers here and here.
