How about a clean and simple card today?
The card base is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock.
The black background is 4 1/8"x2 7/8." I used one of the Border Dies from Jaded Blossom to cut the scallop at the bottom. I cut a white rectangle at 2"x4" and then used six different Distress Inks to create the ombre effect in the background. I used: squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, dried marigold, carved pumpkin, candied apple, & fired brick.
The dog silhouette is a stamp from Paper Smooches. It is from the Paws for a Cause stamp set. I heat embossed it on the white rectangle before I created the ombre background.
I made this for the following challenges:
Paper Play Sketches: sketch
Less Is More: three adjacent color wheel colors
Pile It On: fire or red/orange color scheme
Just Us Girls: dogs
Crazy 4 Challenges: use an animal
Addicted to CAS: pets
Cardz TV: anything goes
