Happy Thursday. It is time for another DOstamper STARS Challenge. This week is a color challenge. I am feeling a little "blue" about this challenge, as my most favorite blue color - Midnight Muse will be retiring soon. Midnight Muse is one of Stampin' Up's In Colors for 2012-14. I am glad we got to play together today.
The colors read very nautical to me. I thought this sketch from Seize the Sketch seemed like the perfect match. I rotated the sketch, but I think the essence of the sketch is there.
The flags are stamped with the Banner Blast stamp set using Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry ink. They are punched with the Banner Punch. If you don't have the Banner Blast stamp set from Sale-a-bration, you can use any stamps that have an all-over design. Just stamp the image on a scrap of paper and then punch it out.
I made two versions of the card, one with a Midnight Muse card base and one with Cherry Cobbler. Since the fish was a smaller image, I added some Cherry Cobbler Candy Dots to the upper corner to balance things out.
Here they are together!
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit my fellow STARS for more inspiration.
