Tasteful Touches

Hey, all! I finally made it to the stamp room AND created something! Yeah! Always feels good to have something work. Took a few tries, but that's OK! As usual when I'm out of practice I browsed through some of my favorite challenges and the color combo at Color Throwdown caught my eye. Especially after I read the colors :) #ctd604 #colorthrowdown Here is my card

and their graphic

It looks like brown, black and white but the verbal says Terracotta so... I had to reach for our In Color Terra-Cotta Tile! I haven't used it often but I like it when I do. It works great for Fall color combos so keep it in mind as we head into Fall! Also my first use of the Tasteful Touches set that is new in the annual catalog. Love all the cards I've seen with it and like how this came out. I did a background with the squares image alternating black and Terra-Cotta and stamping most off once. The background is Shimmery White which I textured with the Subtle 3D folder. Sometimes just a touch of texture is the perfect step up. I sponged the edge with Terra-Cotta ink and attached to an accent layer of Basic Black. The flower was stamped on a separate piece of Shimmery White and colored with a sponge dauber and Terra-Cotta ink. I went over it with my Wink of Stella glitter brush and attached to the background with Stampin' Dimensionals. I knotted a Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon between the saying and background stamping and attached to a Terra-Cotta card base.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to be back soon. It is gorgeous outside though so a few weeds are calling my name. I'm putting a link to my store below but skipping the product links for now as our base website is changing on Tuesday. If you have questions, email me. I will try to come back Tuesday or Wednesday and add products once I know what the new links will look like. Happy weekend all!
