CWC 013 & CTD 102

July 22, 2010

今日も暑い…だから、「涼しい」色を使いたいな~と考え、Color Throwdown Challenge 102のカラーがぴったりだとおもいました。そして、今週のCas-tastic Wednesday Challenge(CWC 103)は、「夏」がテーマ。今日は、この2つのチャレンジを組み合わせることにしました。

Hello everyone!
Today is really hot day again... So I thought I had to play with "cool" colors and the color palette at the Color Throwdown Challenge 102 was perfect!! Plus, this weeks Cas-tastic Wednesday Challenge (CWC013) is Summer Inspiration. I decided to combine these two challenges on my card.

まず、貝殻のイメージをバーサマークで捺してから、クリアのエンボスパウダーでエンボスしました。それからSummer Sky (Memento)とOasis Green (Versa Magic)をスポンジで全体にのせて、スクリプトのスタンプをDenim (Versa Craft)で捺しました。その後、貝殻のイメージの上に残った余分なインクを拭き取りました。これをカードベースに貼り付け、仕上げにセンチメントとボタンを加えて出来上がりです。

At first, I stamped shell images with Versa Mark ink and heat-embossed them with clear EP. Then I sponged Summer Sky ink (Memento) and Oasis Green ink (Versa Magic). After I stamped a script stamp with Denim ink (Versa Craft), I wiped out excess ink that was left over the shell images. I matted the focal panel and attached it on the white cardbase. To finish my card off, a sentiment flag and a button with linen twine were added.


Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy hot summer ~~~! :)
