Picture Perfect by Stampin’ Up! for Create with Connie & Mary
This week it’s a colour challenge over at the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge Blog. These are totally my kind of colours! I don’t know why but I instantly thought of the hummingbird from Picture Perfect by Stampin’ Up! when I sat down to really look at this challenge. I haven’t used Picture Perfect for a while and have been itching to get it out and use it again. So that could be why!
Spoiler Alert: Look away now if you don’t want to see new product from the soon to be launched Autumn/Winter catalogue! I bet you look! Lol!
I absolutely love the new Ghoulish Grunge stamp set! To be honest there’s really only stamp in the set which I would say is really Halloweeny. The rest of the set is so versatile and can be used for backgrounds for any occasion.
To make the card:
- I started by inking up the Brick image in Smoky Slate and stamping off on scrap paper before stamping onto the right hand side of my card front. You will need to stamp twice to cover the length of the card front.
- Next, I inked up the paint drip image in Calypso Coral. Again I stamped off before I stamped onto the card front.
- I stamped the humming bird first in stamped off Pool Party, then stamped the throat in Calypso Coral;
- The 3rd stamp I used full strength Pool Party and finally I stamped the final bird image in Smoky Slate!
I hope you like it! Please do pop over to the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team have come up with for these colours!
