It's Banana Split Sunday on the 2RedBananas blog. The challenge for this week is to use stripes on your project. There is a fun prize to be won as well. The My Mind's Eye - Bloom paper pack :)
Here is my card for the challenge. I used the Sarah Kay Country Girl stamp. She is just so adorable!! I also used the new Pink Paislee Fetching papers. There papers are really nice, very heavy weight!
Stamps: Country Girl - Sarah Kay
Ink: Versafine Onyx black
Paper: Pink Paislee Fetching collection, Bazzill, and kraft cardstock
Other: May Arts Burlap string, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, distressing tool
This card was made for the Limited Supplies challenge on SCS. The challenge was to use the colors of a room in your house on your card. I used the colors in my studio (which are also the colors in my kitchen :) Khaki walls, deep red desk, black accessories.
Stamps: Quotes - 2RedBananas
Ink: Versafine Onyx black, Memento Rhubarb Stalk (new color for me and I LOVE it - look for it in the 2RedBananas store soon :)
Paper; cardstock - kraft, deep red, black
Other: nesties, prima flowers, cuttlebug embossing folder (which I inked with the Memento ink BEFORE I embossed the kraft cardstock with it - very fun technique), brads, dew drops, gems, sheer ribbon
This one was made for another SCS challenge. This challenge was to use mostly white or all white. I used a technique for the background that I just LOVE. With the Essentials glue pad, you stamp a background stamp with glue and then sprinkle loose glitter over it. It creates a glittered background for you, very cool! My flowers started out white and I airbrushed them with the Copic airbrush system. I sponged the ink onto the sentiment and then added a few red embellishments.
Supplies: Stamps: Quotes - 2RedBananas, Abstract leaves backgrounder - Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink: Essentials glue pad, warm red chalk ink, Versafine vintage sepia
Paper: Bazzill, plain white cardstock
Other: nesties - lables four, primas, crystal brad, May Arts velvet ricrac, corner rounder, glitter
