Last Tuesday’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast was a tough one for me: Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron.

I decided to use an image from JustRite Stampers new Birdhouse set, that I had just received in the mail. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it with Circle Nestabilities dies and colored it with Copic Markers (Green house: G40, G21, G24, Yellow House: Y21, Y23, W2, Blue House: B21, B23, B26, House bottoms: W00, W1, W2, Leaves: G21, YG63, YG67).

The image was layered several time. The bottom base is a piece of White cardstock cut and embossed with the largest Eyelet Circle Nestabilities die. It was topped with the sentiment circle. In it’s center was first a black cardstock circle and finally the image center.

A 4 3/8″ long white cardstock strip was cut and embossed with the Eyelet Borderabilities die. The strip was cut in half and adhered top and bottom to a 2 1/4″ x 4 3/8″ piece of Circa 1934 Cosmo Cricket patterned paper piece. That layered strip was adhered to a 4 3/4″ square of paper from the same paper pack. The top left and bottom right corner were rounded before the layer was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of white cardstock.

May Arts black lace was adhered over the horizontal strip before White Organdy ribbon was tied over it. The bow was topped with a Cosmo Cricket Button. The card base is a 4 7/8″ x 9 3/4″ piece of Wild Wasabi, folded in half with to of the corners rounded. Snow Kaisercraft pearls on the top right and bottom left finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
