27 Sketches in 27 Days-#19



Sketch #19 & Card......

I am loving this color combo! This is the 2nd time I've used it, but here's the first card I made with it: Merry & Bright

Isn't it fun? I get to dig out my Orchid Opulence and use it up! That's another color I rarely use, in addition to yesterday's Brilliant Blue.

You're probably thinking that my ribbon doesn't match, and yes, it is a little dark. I took my White Taffeta ribbon and dyed it with my Blue Bayou Ink pad. It did come out a bit dark, I'll agree. But IRL, it doesn't look too bad.

Recipe:
Stamps: Eat Cake
Paper: Orchid Opulence, Blue Bayou, Certainly Celery, WW
Ink: Orchid Opulence, Blue Bayou, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, WW Taffeta Ribbon-Dyed in Blue Bayou Inkpad

Nice card! I bought some SU white narrow grosgrain to dye...I need more experience...I found all of my colors dyed darker than the cardstock. Still usable, though. In fact, I kind of like the shade difference; it makes it stand out more as an accent, plus no one else has ribbon just like it, so you have a unique card! :)
Thanks for sharing and providing all the great sketches.
