CYCI #101 Color Challenge


Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I wanted to share a card I made for the Can You Case It Color Challenge this week. This was the inspiration they gave for this color challenge 

This is what I came up with

I started my card with a Concord Crush base. Next I took a piece of Whisper White and die cut it with the Spellbinders Cascading Dots die and then used the following inks to distress it – Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Midnight Muse, Wisteria Wonder and Vintage Violet.  After giving the inks a few minutes to dry I adhered this price to another slightly large piece of Whisper White and then filled in all the dots with glossy accents. While that was drying I stamped the image and sentiment from the SU set And Everything Nice and colored with my copics. I backed the image with a piece of Concord Crush and distressed the sentiment with Wisteria Wonder. After the first piece was finished drying I placed it on the card base and then added the image and sentiment. 

Here is the link to the CYCI challenge if you would like to play along with them

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
