SCRSC34: Lemons and Limes


I'm back today with a card I made for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps' challenge this week. The challenge? To use this photo of some lovely lawn furniture from Pottery Barn as your inspiration.

I decided to pull some colors from the picture and use them as a color scheme for my card. I stamped Traveling Josh in Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and colored with PrismaColor pencils before cutting out. I layered Josh on a circle of Daffodil Delight card stock that I had added dots of Lemon Liquid Pearls.

I cut a couple pieces of Stella Rose designer paper and matted on Early Espresso cardstock before stitching the edges with my sewing machine. I also matted the Daffodil Delight circle on an every so slightly larger lacey circle cut from more of the Early Espresso. To finish a sentiment was stamped on Karft cardstock and the corners rounded.
