just one piece of cardstock

That is today’s challenge on SCS.  Take a sheet of cardstock and make a card.  The intent is to get back to the purity of just stamps and ink and that is what I used here.  One sheet of cardstock, two stamps, embossing powder and alot of ink!

The paper – just plain white cardstock!  I knew white would be perfect for this challenge because you can make it any color, so I just started experimenting and came up with this rich color combo:  Cantaloupe and Dandelion  from Memento and Rich Razzleberry from SU.  who knew those colors would go together so well?

The main panel was stamped and embossed in white (the image from StarvingArtistamps).  I sponged Dandelion ink in the center, Cantaloupe around that and edged with Razzleberry.  This panel was mounted on a piece of white cardstock that was edged in Razzleberry.

The base card was inked in the same manner.  The script text image is from Papertrey and stamped in Razzleberry. 

I did not have any matching ribbon, but I did have some paper left so I colored it with Razzleberry and cut a strip to place above the text and a little piece to place on the top of the main panel.

I’m very happy with how it turned out – especially the colors!

Thanks for stopping by today!
