The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 9 – Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set

Welcome back to another Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge.  This week we have a Colour Challenge for you.  I’ve opted to go do a Christmas Card again using the Stampin Up Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set.

I have to say it is a little different to what I had in my head, but I’m okay with it.

Bright & Beautiful

Our colours this week were Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Gold and Whisper White.

I’ve started off with a Melon Mambo Card Base, my two layers are Gold Foil and then Basic Black.  I started off with the idea of using Versamark to stamp stars all over it and a watermark look to it…. but when I went to emboss the gold sentiment it turned out a BIG MESS!  Obviously the gold embossing powder wanted to stick to the stars too.  SIGH I had to start again without the watermark background.

My pink stars have been White Embossed on Whisper White card, and then sponged over with Melon Mambo Ink.  The gold star is Gold Foil, and the other star was also a mix up.  I cut the star out of Whisper White card first, and then tried to stamp onto it with Melon Mambo as an after thought.  Even looking at it now, I think I should have Gold Embossed on the White.  Doh!  Why am I only thinking of this now???

All stars have been adhered to each other with Dimensionals, and the top panel is also adhered using Dimensionals.  The last little star has a Melon Mambo Rhinestone in the middle (coloured with Blendabilities).

Here’s the colour challenge graphic for you to play along with at home.
