Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC34: New and Old Catalg Mix Up

Happy Monday!  After another wonderful weekend full of family fun it's back to work and school (only two weeks to go) and since it's the first Monday of the month it's time for this months SSINKspiration blog color challenge and I love that Darcy gave us a great combo that combines one of the new 2016-2018 In Colors along with some of our classic colors.  I decided to combine this color sketch with this weeks  Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge for some extra fun.

I started with Emerald Envy cardstock for the cardbase (this is going to be a great and much use color) and then added a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  On this piece I stamped the watercolor image from the Work of Art stamp set using Pink Pirouette ink and then used the splatter stamp from the Painter's Palette set set using Emerald Envy ink in the top left corner.

Next I started building layers from the bottom, first using a piece of Silver Foil cardstock and then some Elegant Eggplant designer series paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper stack.  Since I'm still waiting for my first big order from the new catalog I decide to make my one patterned paper by using a piece of Whisper White cardstock and the stamps from the Work of Art stamp set and all our color sketch colors.  I matted this with a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock before attaching it to the cardfront.

For the greeting I used the Balloon Celebrations stamp set and after stamping using Elegant Eggplant ink on Whisper White paper I cut it out using the Big Shot and Project Life Labels and Cards Framelits and then sponged around the sides using Pink Piroutte ink before attaching to the cardfront with dimensionals.  Behind the greeting is a couple of loops of Silver Metallic Thread and then I added a small bow using the Emerald Envy 3/8" Ruched Ribbon (this ribbon is beautiful!!).  The final touch was to add a few silver sequins from the Metallics Sequins.

I love how these colors work together and this sketch is definitely taking me outside of my comfort zone which is always fun!  Make sure to check out the other design team cards and we would love for you to play along with this months sketch!
