I Dig You

This week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a Picture Perfect challenge. The photo featured a line of neutral, earth-tone colored crayons, so I used a color palette inspired by the photo to create my card.

The card features one of the dogs from the Woofers and Tweeters stamp set. I die cut the image from white cardstock using the coordinating die set, then stamped the matching outline image in black ink and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. It’s adhered to a round panel with some brown on brown dotted patterned paper “ground” and a cream on cream chevron patterned “sky.”

I attached the round panel to a kraft card base along with a brown chevron patterned paper panel and a pair of brown faux suede ribbon strips. The “I dig you” sentiment is stamped around the upper edge of the round panel. The asymmetrical arrangement of the elements adds interest, but keeps things clean and simple.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers: Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters stamp set and Woofers dies, Crafter’s Companion ultrasmooth white cardstock, Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Spectrum Noir markers (TN1, TN4, TN5, TN6, TN7, TN8), Simple Stories Urban Traveler 6x6 paper pad, Bo Bunny Double Dot Natural Necessities 6x6 paper pad, Echo Park Bundle of Joy-Boy 6x6 paper pad, May Arts brown faux suede ribbon, Sticky Thumb dimensional dots
