Relax

I've been trying something different lately. I'm still not sure I like it, but it's probably because it's just not my "norm". I don't know if you'd consider this a "scrappy" style or what, but I've always liked cards that use different patterned papers and even stamped the focal image in different colors, rather than on a white or cream cardstock. It goes against my brain, I think, but I really like when I see other people do it. So, here is one of my attempts at trying something new for me! :)

I used the Sandy Sunsets set from Our Craft Lounge. I used the June Sketch Challenge from the OCL Forums. There's always a challenge going on if you're in need of inspiration! So, spread your wings a bit and try something outside of your "norm". Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Sandy Sunsets (Our Craft Lounge); Ink- Blue Bayou (SU), Burnt Umber (Palette); Paper- Delighted Key Ingredients Kit (Taylored Expressions); Accessories- rhinestone brads (Darice), Chocolate Chip grosgrain (SU), paper piercer; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
