My card uses a Juniper colored patterned paper from Jingle which was available several years ago, Creme Brulee CS, a thin Cocoa CS stripe, Quick Cards--Bumblebee stamp, Cocoa ink, Versamark ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Creme Brulee ink with honeycomb stamp from Wicked stamp set (CTMH retired) and glossy paper (retired CTMH). 3D Foam Tape lifts the focus panel from the center panel.
Before I stamped on the center panel I used a Polished Stone Technique to create the background. I soaked a cotton ball with Rubbing Alcohol and then put drops of Creme Brulee and Juniper reinkers on the cotton ball. I then rubbed the alcohol and color soaked cotton ball over the glossy paper to create the multicolored or marbled effect. (I did not add a metallic ink to the cotton ball as originally described in this technique here). Although I have plenty of Glossy CS in my stash it may be hard to find. The blue package of glossy photographic paper pictured here would be a source--I got this package at Dollar Tree.
This was a very easy sketch to follow as the paper dimensions are listed in the sketch photo. I will definitely be using more OWH sketches in the future!
We hope you can join in on this challenge. If you don't have Close To My Heart colors you may substitute something similar. Please use only the 2 challenge colors (this week it is Juniper and Creme Brulee)--you may use neutrals to complement these colors but the challenge focus is to use these colors. Link up your papercrafted creation (it does not have to be a card!) here by Thursday, May 30, 2012 9PM CST. There is a monthly prize to be won by one lucky person! Don't forget to see what the rest of the Design Team has ready to inspire you!
