Every now and again, I’ll put a shout out on my Facebook Page for any requests. I’m talking colours, or DSP rather than ‘anything you want and I’ll make it’ kind of requests… There are limits!!!!
And right at the beginning of the month, I did this. Another demo asked me to do something with Smoky slate, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party, and I was to use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
The first three I could do, but I don’t actually own the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. Yet (it’s on the list, don’t hate me!)
So I accepted the challenge and decided to do a bit of splodging on the clouds that I’d made with the Cupcake Builder Punch, and then just add a ribbon border along the bottom with the Coastal Cabanna Ruffle Trim, Smokey Slate Chevron Ribbon and Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon. All on a triple layer of Coastal Cabana card blank, Smokey Slate mat and Pool Party layer.
But, it needed more! More I tell you!
So I grabbed the Happy Day stamp set and stamped Smile straight onto the card using Basic Black ink.
I think for me, the ironic slant that this card has is what appeals to me. It’s a grey cloudy day, and the card says ‘Smile’? Well, okay. Why not!
It certainly makes me smile!
Does it make you smile?
Let me know what you think, and if you like the triple layering of ribbon. I think it’s quite cute, and I may well do something similar again!
