A New Colour Challenge!

Happy middle of March!  Not long till this miserable winter is but a distant memory...SO ready for spring!!  Today marks the beginning of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps...check it out:

Here is my project for the Design Team:

Father's Day card featuring the Guy Greetings stamp set
 I decided this colour combo was perfect for a Man-card.  I used a piece of patterned paper from the Stacked With Love DSP stack for my background...I thought the pattern reminded me of a Phillips screwdriver!  I sponged it with So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks and then stamped it using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Basic Black ink.  The next layer began as a piece of Whisper White card stock, which I stamped repeatedly using the wrench image from the Guy Greetings stamp set and Basic Black ink.  I also sponged that layer with So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink  and stamped the spatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge set in metallic gold ink, before layering it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.

The focal image is stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White card stock and then punched with the 2" circle punch and layered on a 2-3/8" circle, die-cut using the Circles Collection Framelits from Basic Black card stock.  I added a bit of Basic Black baker's twine, as well as the sentiment, also from the Guy Greetings set, that I trimmed into shorter pieces so that it fit on the card better.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Guy Greetings set in Basic Black ink as well as the wrenches again along the bottom.  I sponged lightly in So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie inks.

Why not give this colour challenge a try and join us over at Sunday Stamps?  We'd love to see your creativity!
