Good morning! I need a wedding card for a couple in our church and it tied in perfectly with last week's Word of the Week challenge in the Kitchen Sink Stamps Forum. The word is Happiness - what could be happier than a wedding?! I pulled out Multi-Step Champagne Celebration from Kitchen Sink Stamps and since I needed it to be quick I pulled up Connie's fun sketch from last week's Friday Sketch challenge also in the KSS Forum. You can never go wrong with black and white for an elegant card and since the champagne was a gold-tone I added Harvest Gold (from Papertrey Ink) as my accent color.
It's difficult to see, but to add a bit more glam and elegance, I added a pearl swash in the right hand corner of the card and kept the sentiment to the left.
When I needed a color recipe for the classes, I pulled up the Champagne Celebration Gallery and borrowed Lynn's recipe - Step 4 - Going Grey, Step 3, Going Grey, Step 2 - Crushed Curry (stamped off), Step 1 - Going Grey (stamped off). I then colored over the "champagne" with a sparkly pen to add the effervescence! :) The bubbles were stamped with Crushed Curry (stamped off - Step 2) and Platinum Planet (Brilliance - Step 1).
Pop over to the KSS Forum and give one of the challenges a try or take a look at Maria's color recipes or some instructional Videos - there are tons of things to inspire!
