Iggy…

It’s another color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! I had fun with these colors. They are both strong and make quite a punch so I used them “lightly”. I started out in an entirely different direction with a Bermuda Bay base and Tangelo Twist mat but I tell you it was too much visually so I went the opposite route and I’m glad that I did.

I can’t help but think of that Iggy Azalea song “I’m So Fancy… can’t you taste this gold?” song when I look at this card! Ha! I think the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder gives it a nice texture. The sentiment is layered on the Gold Foil Sheet and then popped up with dimensionals to give it some… well… dimension. 😉

Hope you’ll come and play this week’s challenge with us! Just click here to play! And if I don’t get a chance to post again before this weekend, Happy Mother’s Day! Even to the mamas of fur babies, they count too! ❤

Hello Friends,

It’s time for another challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.  This week it is a color challenge.  At first I thought I may struggle with it but as it came along I realized that I really like it!  This challenge was a good reminder for me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things.

I even got out the Crystal Effects to play with because it had been awhile since I used it. The Lovely Lace embossing folder gives it detail without being too “fussy”.  The sentiment is from the “Hello There” hostess set.

In this picture you can better see where I put the Crystal Effects over the sentiment. I stamped it using the Tuxedo Black Momento ink and had no problems with it smearing.  Lastly, I topped it off with a sweet Wild Wasabi Candy Dot. 🙂
