I've been doing the So You Think You Can Scrap challenge at Colorful Creations and have made it to round 8 so here is the layout I made for this challenge.
The challenge this week is to use the sketch, use blue, red, yellow and green only (bright, primary ish colors), hand sew, mist, and fussy cut.
I followed the sketch and I used all 4 colors. I misted the yellow paper on the upper right hand side with yellow Jingle Bells Glimmer Mist but since it didn't show up very well I also misted the whole layout with Iridescent Spray and Sparkle (love this stuff!!!).
here is the back of the layout
Here is a little tip that is a super simple idea but saves you a ton of paper. When you are layering paper on a layout (or card) you can cut out the middle of the paper that is the bottom layer. It is easy to just measure in about an inch or however much works for your project and then cut it out with your paper trimmer. You then can adhere the paper on top and no one will even know that the middle is missing from your bottom paper.
For my fussy cutting, I stamped out two flowers from the Stamp It Holiday-Poinsettia stamp with Paris Dusk Memento ink onto red card stock and then fussy cut them out. Next I layered them offset on my layout using double sided adhesive squares to adhere one of them a bit higher than the other one. I also stamped out a swirl from the Sheena A Little Bit Scenic - Flying Colors stamp set with the same ink onto blue card stock and fussy cut it out too. I also used the double sided adhesive squares to adhere it to my layout.
Fingers crossed I make it to round 9!! lol I am also entering it in the Anything But a Card Challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.
My BFF and her family left to drive back home this morning. I'm going to miss them. It was a great weekend. I hope you had a good weekend too. Thanks for visiting.
Until next time...happy scrapping!
