Dynamic Duos challenge, which is to use Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze. I love trying out all of these new color combos. Baja Breeze has been getting a lot more of my attention lately since it coordinates so well with the new In Colors as well as so many other colors.
Earlier this week I came across this fabulous card made by Angie Leach and I just had to try out this triple layout. I love how stampers around the world share their ideas online so that we can all learn from and inspire each other! I cut all of my white card stock pieces 4x5-1/4, 3x4-1/4, and 2x3-1/4 and used a bit of adhesive to hold them together on top of each other. Then I stamped my images and then used the Color Spritzer tool and Basic Gray marker to get some gray speckles all around. Once I did that, I pulled the pieces apart and then layered them onto the Baja Breeze card stock (8-1/2x5-1/2 card base, then 3-1/4"x4-1/2, and 2-1/4x3-12). It may sound a little complicated, but it's actually pretty easy. Just cut each layer 1 inch smaller than the other. I think I'll try out some different sizes sometime. Before I glued everything together, I tied a little Basic Gray stitched grosgrain around the first two layers to tie in the gray Thank You (from Sassy Salutations) and the gray speckles. Have you tried a technique like this before? I love how the flower pattern continues through the layers, but it is visually more interesting than just a flowered background. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
