Okay, colour challenges are still intimidate for me! I have
decided the best way to get around that is to combine a colour challenge with a sketch challenge. Today I have used Jen Mitchell's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the colour challenge over at Stampin' Royalty!
When I saw this week's sketch I immediately thought of the manifest stamp from The Open Sea. Oh my goodness, am I creating a masculine card? But what about the Perfect Plum on a guy card?
Well I made it work...and well I think!
I wanted to use the baker's twine on this card but when I tried the early espresso it was too dark and the white was too stark. What to do, what to do. Dye the white baker's twine of course! I placed a length in a container with a small amount of water and a few drops of Soft Suede Classic Ink Refill, let it sit to absorb the colour, let it dry and
ta-dah, Soft Suede Baker's Twine!
