7/1/20 Top 5 at QKR Stampede!

Hi everyone! I’m baaack! Yep, you guessed it… with another card created for The Outlawz Challenges, lol! I’ve had such a good time cranking them out over the past couple days! This one is for the Tuesday Color Challenge where our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs so be sure to come over and play! The colors for this challenge are black and white plus one color of choice – with a twist of stripes!

I used black and white striped cardstock for my background which I layered on black cardstock. I colored the SheepSki Designs Wild Roses digital image in shades of green. Green is my all-time favorite color and I thought it looked fabulous on the black and white!

I used a coloring technique that I haven’t used in years – Gamsol with colored pencils. I thoroughly enjoyed this and had forgotten how much fun it was… so much so that I used it on another project the same day, lol! I used a digital sentiment which I layered on several pieces of cardstock, trimmed and placed in the bottom right corner. I completed the front with some randomly placed white flat-back pearls.

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the black and white striped cardstock, added a digital sentiment, and layered the panel on the black cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving this color combo!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
