Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #59 - Stampin' Up! Work of Art

Pistachio Pudding #1


Pistachio Pudding is teamed with Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar for this color coach card. 

CAS(E) This Sketch have the cutest sketch this week but I couldn't come up with any kind of fun image to use, so I went with using the new Work of Art stamp set and referencing the heart in the sketch instead and using the brush strokes & sentiment as the 'creature'. 

The Paper Players have a 'Tic Tac Toe' challenge this week so I chose patterned paper, a shade of green (since I am using Pistachio Pudding) and thank you as my elements. 

I am sending this card to a customer who placed an order the other day. I hope she likes the card. I really like how this came together. :)

If you are wondering how I got the two shades of green, I stamped in Pistachio Pudding first and then did a second stamp next to it without cleaning my stamp. This technique is called "stamping off"...where you do a repeat of the stamp using the rest of the ink left on the stamp. You can get many shades of your colours this way. :)

Hope you like my card!
