I was so bummed to read that the Dynamic Duos challenge blog was closing, so I made sure to create a card using their very last color combination. I also used the sketch at The Paper Players.
I've been doing a lot of CAS cards lately, so I decided to put a little bit more work into this one. I took a look at the tissue paper inside my MPP box and realized it was Pool Party, so I decided to start there. I stamped it in Pool Party with the floral image from So Very Grateful. I also stamped a strip of Pool Party cardstock with the same floral images and covered it with Crystal Effects. It's nearly impossible to see in the picture, but I poured Dazzling Diamonds onto the Crystal Effects and then pressed the wrinkled up tissue paper onto the cardstock. I put a strip of adhesive around the outside edges of the back of the cardstock and wrapped the tissue paper around the cardstock to complete my panel. I wish the lighting would have been better today so you could see the sparkle underneath!
The back panel is sponged in all three of the Dynamic Duo colors and then spritzed with some water to grunge it up a bit. This is my new favorite technique for creating my own Designer Paper! I love how it washes away some of the color with the little spritzes.
Thanks for stopping by. Make sure to stop by Addicted to Stamps and More! to see the rest of the cards the design team has come up with for our Holiday challenge!
