SC 005/11..

Kris has set the challenge for this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations with the only stipulation we use Marina Mist.  Now, this is a beautiful colour, one that I do not use very often, and one I find it very hard to work with!  I don't know why, but all the creations I've seen that have Marina Mist in them are just lovely.

To help me with my sample, I went straight to my Colour Coach - fantastic SU Tool & one I would not be able to survive without!

Base Card - Crajun Craze - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10.5cm - once scored in half
Layer 1 - Crumb Cake - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 3 7/7" or 14cm x 9.5cm

I run the Whisper White through the Bigshot using the Embossing Folder - Petals a Plenty ensuring that I only emboss half the card.  Using Old Olive Ink, I stamped my images over the top half of Whisper White - the part not embossed.  I then coloured the images using my SU Markers of Bashful Blue first & then Marina Mist.  I wan't too worried about going out of the lines or how rough I coloured the images, as I think this set calls for colouring to be random.  I stamped a image onto a scrap of Whisper White, coloured it in & cut around the image to adhere to the card once completed.

The Whisper White piece was adhered to the piece of Crumb Cake.  A piece of Taffeta 1/8" Ribbon was adhered across the centre & to the back of Crumb Cake.  This piece was then adhered to the Base Card - Cajun Craze.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White using Marina Mist, punched it using the Window Word Punch & adhered to a piece of Cajun Craze which had been punched using the Modern Label Punch.  I adhered this to the bottom RHS of the card.  The cut out image was then adhered to the card & over another stamped image using SU Dimensionals.  To finidh the card & to give it a little bit of a lift, I applied Rhinestones to the centres of the flowers.
