An Inkspiration Sketch & A Shell Colour Challenge!!!

I've managed to combine a few needs with this card, first up it's the sketch challenge from the Lovely Keesh, secondly it's a colour combo for my lovely Blogging Buddy Shell and thirdly it's a card for my soon to be 'nephew'.... oooh how exciting!!!!

So, first up here is the sketch that Keesh has set for her Inkspiration Challenge this week:-

And let me tell you... the urge to pick up my Trendy Trees set was HUGE!!!!, but I was strong, strong STRONG and picked up my Nursery Necessities instead!!!!

The colour combo for the lovely Shell is Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Whisper White and a bit of Baja Breeze DSP too!!!

And now, here's the card:-

I started out with a base of Baja Breeze, then added a layer of So Saffron and some Baja Breeze DSP to that then I've got the middle section with some more So Saffron and some Certainly Celery, with a bit of Baja Breeze Ribbon. The moon is stamped in So Saffron, the star in Certainly Celery and I've put some extra Baja Breeze DSP behind them both. My scallop.... well my scallop around the moon was created by cutting a few Scallop Circles then cutting them so that I could create a Scallop large enough to fit around the circle. That's all popped up on some dimensionals and then I added the sentiment in Certainly Celery with a little So Saffron layer to make it pop out a bit.

Hope you like. And Shell, hope I haven't scared you with the colour combo!!! hahaha

Thanks for stopping by.

Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Nursery Necessities
Ink:- Certainly Celery, So Saffron

Card:- Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Baja Breeze DSP

Accessories:- Baja Breeze Double Striped Ribbon, Round Tab Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Dimensionals.

Miss Sarah, this is just divine. What a perfect card for a baby boy. I love all the stuff you've been pumping out - just gorgeous - and I totally share your fixation with the trees :)

Soooooo darling! Love the way you put the moon in the scallop circle. Way fun!

Keesh said...

this is just adorable Sarah! Love the colours, and how you have used the spotty background paper behind the moon! Love it! Thanks so much for playing! Love Keesh x

I love how you've done the moon in the main circle panel! Funny how we both included stars and a moon in our interpretation of this sketch!

Thanks for sharing!
