Make A Wish Upon A Star Card
I decided to challenge myself with the Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) bingo color challenge AND sketch challenge. If that wasn't enough I then told myself to go look at the SCS Thursday ways to use it challenge and no matter what the topic, I was going to do it! I figured I was in for a really wonky result. I chose the right most vertical row of colors: Red, Brown, Purple and sky blue from the bingo sheet. I dug deep in my scraps with some options in mind. I had a red scrap used weeks ago for a floral challenge and I recall a nice deep purple linen scrap, found it, so far so good. A lovely twinkling sky blue scrap surfaced that was large enough for my largest layer.
I decided on a neutral white for the top large layer to give it a good bit of contrast I gave the white some life with a dry embossed star embossed pattern. On the stitched elements I swiped some silver Gilder's paste to make sure the stitching showed. On the thin brown strip I heat embossed the sentiment in silver. The sentiment is from the July 2015 Calico Studio Card Kit (they no longer offer a Card kit).
I popped the whole thing up on a white base, leaving a thin white edge to balance with the white front. I then finished it up with coordinating rhinestone stars.I enjoyed satisfying so many hard challenges with this card and it didn't come out half as wonky as I expected!
I entered this project in the following challenges:
