wherever you go ... | MTDS August challenge

10 August 2014

Hello and happy weekend! Today I am showing a card that I made for the Make the Day Special August challenge. This month's challenge is a colour challenge and here is my card ~

I based my card around colour palette A. 

First I took a piece of Neenah solar white card stock and masked off an area around the edge. Then I used my distress inks and mini blending tools to create a sunset background and water in the foreground.

MaketheDaySpecial stock MamaElephant products and I used their products to create the scene on my card. First I used the cityscape stamp from the Central Park set,  stamped in Ranger Archival black ink. Over the top of this I added a piece of vellum cut with the Femme Frames die (shortened to fit the card). Onto this I stamped the bridge die from the Sightseeing set in versamark ink and heat embossed it in Ranger Liquid Platinum. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed this with Hero Arts white embossing powder. Lastly I stamped and die cut the bus and added it to the scene with dimensional adhesive.

I really enjoyed this challenge, I love the colours and a chance to play with my distress inks :) 

Thanks for looking and have a great day.x
