The new Make The Cards Challenge is a Color Challenge for this week.
It’s also entitled Suit Up. I do not have any stamps with a person wearing a suit of any kind, so I decided that I would just go with the color challenge.
This was a good challenge. It has a masculine feel to it and the color palette is all neutrals. The Puddle Play stamp set from Catherine Pooler was sitting next to me. I just got it and I haven’t even put it away yet, so I decided that it was better to play with it first!
I used products from a few of my favorite companies here. The Puddle Play from Catherine Pooler is actually from a release or two ago. The bear and the sentiment came from that set. I colored the bear in with Copics and stamped the sentiment in my new Color Hive Eclipse Black Ink from Maker Forte. It’s my new go-to ink for when I want to use my alcohol markers.
The rain drops are from the Maker Forte Rainy Day stencil, which is probably one of my most used stencils! I used the Nuvo Glacier Paste in Frostbite. You can see the sparkle and sheen that gave me in the background.
My cardstock is from Simon Says Stamps and I used a set of stacking rectangle dies with a fun edge and a stitching detail on them from Kat Scrapiness. I really like the dies I’ve purchased from Kat Scrapiness.
A few months ago, I won a prize in a blog hop for leaving comments on all the entries. It was a $50 gift certificate to any company of my choice and I picked Kat Scrapiness because I wanted some new interesting dies! This is one of the sets I selected and I’m so glad I got them.
I added a few sequins from Catherine Pooler’s Portsmouth Sequin Mix to finish off the card.
