Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge

Even though Dawn McVey is on holidays in Hawaii she still has managed to update her blog. Today she has posted her new Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge. The colours are brown, soft aqua, and white. I have used these colours together quite often and enjoy the colour palate. I knew what sketch I wanted to use, but wasn't too sure what stamp to use as the focal. So I challenged myself to try a new stamp I of course have spent money on, but haven't used yet.

I started by cutting my case base from PTI's Dark Chocolate cardstock. The paper I used is from SU. It is the hostess DP paper that was available in last seasons catalog. I added faux stitching using a SU Chocolate Chip writers marker around the edges of the patterned paper. I added a strip of PTI Dark Chocolate cardstock over the seam of the patterned paper, and then added SU Bashful Blue ribbon. The main image is a Gstudio Popsicle Clear Stamp that was in the dollar bin at Micheal's. It is stamped onto SU Whisper White cardstock that was then brushed with SU Bashful Blue chalk. It was then layered with SU Bashful Blue cardstock and PTI's Dark Chocolate. The flower punch on the side of the Dark Chocolate cardstock is a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set as the Popsicle.

Paper: PTI Dark Chocolate; SU Hostess DP; SU Whisper White; SU Bashful Blue

Accessories: SU Chalks; SU Bashful Blue ribbon; SU 1" & 1 1/4" circle punch; pop dots; Martha Stewart punch
