Thought I'd go back to my scrapbooking roots for Kristina Werner's colour challenge #52 this week...so that's why my card looks like a scrapbook page. Not sure where, but I recently found a great sheet of patterned paper (Sparkle Celebration Bubbles Cinnamon Stick by Cloud9Design) with exactly the colours required for this challenge: Baja/Aqua, Saffron, Mustard, Sand and White. No adding, which means no black or chocolate. Coincidently Ali Edward's digital templates use a similar scheme and so this was an easy one!
I used the Ali Edwards Layered Template No. 05, designed by Ali Edwards, which I purchased at designerdigitals.com. Hope I credited that one right! Whew... Although I spent too much time playing around in Photoshop and Illustrator today while creating this card, boy, did I learn a lot. I gave the original photo an antique hue then changed it to a blue hue close to blue bayou before importing the altered photo into the template in Photoshop.
Here's the original:
Basically, this is what the layout looked like before I printed on Xerox 110lb cardstock and embellished with SU so saffron, blue bayou, more mustard and textured sahara sand cardstock, circles cut from the patterned paper, and a Basic Grey brad:
Just in case you're wondering, the fonts I used are Candara and Marydale. It's hybrid scrapbooking that I really love. Hope you like what I've shared...
