Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #114 - Boys Will Be Boys stamp set

Real Red #2


Welcome to another Artful Stampers blog hop!

The sketch gave me the perfect platform to create a shaker card. I used Color Coach Colors of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso.

I used some Real Red Designer Series Paper from the Brights Paper stack as my background and I stamped the robot from Boys Will Be Boys in Early Espresso as my main image. I filled my shaker window with gold sequins (I took them off the gold sequin trim ribbon), and some red and clear sequins from a retired Christmas Project Life pack. I also created my own star confetti out of Pumpkin Pie and Real Red with the Confetti Stars Border Punch. 

In a previous version of this card, the robot is coloured in, but I actually like the robot line image as an uncoloured image. It just goes to show that our line art stamps can be left empty and still look great! 

Here is the sketch for this week:
