I started with the stamping this time around so I could then work out which colours I wanted to make the mountings and bases. Using the large stamp from the Season of Joy set (IB&C p25) I coloured different parts using the Pool Party, Certainly Celery and Melon Mambo markers.
Then came the mounting, first onto some Pool Party cardstock which I used the scallop border punch to edge, then onto the Whisper White. I felt I needed a little more Certainly Celery so added a strip of the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon turning over only one end.
The Melon Mambo cardstock I ran through the Big Shot machine in the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder (IB&C p157) before mounting the stamped image portion on with dimensionals to raise it off the page.
Whisper White is the card base and of course everything was stuck on using my snail adhesive. I added couple of rhinestones to various parts of the image for a little bling.
All in all I'm really happy with this challenge card as I like doing a few cards that aren't so traditional in colour and it was surprisingly quick to pull together.
Enjoy - Julie
