I participated in a challenge this week where we were asked to make our own background designs and using plaid was encouraged. This is my entry for the challenge.
I used the Rich Sorbet PanPastels to create the background. Because the colors wouldn't be completely blended in with the Sofft Tool Sponges, I used a piece of Color Splash Sheets to create the plaid design on. The Color Splash Sheet has texture to it, so more tooth for the PanPastels to stick to.
Having cut out two design shapes using the Decorative Medallions Die Set, I decided to layer them (match up the center diamond shape) on top of each other. Since both of them were Lemon Grass, it didn't allow for the contrast that I was hoping for. Using the Journey Silver Pigment Marker, I completely changed the color and the look of the top shape. It really shines too when the light catches it. Added a Rainbow Drop in the center using a glue dot to finish the card.
Sentiment could easily be added to the front of the card or stamped inside. I do a lot of note card style cards with no sentiments and just put a handwritten note inside.
The Rainbow Drops are "amazing" ... love this product and so easy to attach to a project using glue dots. What a fantastic deal too on them. They come in their own hard acrylic divided container that has sliding locks on it. There are 768 pieces --- 6 colors and 3 sizes of each color. Gorgeous.
