Retro Duos


Hi there! I've got a two for one challenge card this evening. I used the colours from Dynamic Duos and the sketch from RetroSketches.  I found these colours a little tricky so I broke them up with quite a bit of white.  I used a Sweet Stamp Shop stamp for the embossed hearts in the background and an Avery Elle sentiment stamp.  I was inspired by the scored lines on Laurie's card and added some to give my white panels a little more texture and interest.  Hope you've all had a lovely day!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pink Pirouette, Pool Party) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Hearts from Drops Background) Sweet Stamp Shop, (Sentiment from Oh Happy Day) Avery Elle
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Die:  (Heart Prints) Papertrey Ink
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Gems:  (Cupcake assortment) Doodlebug

Jen, I love your take on both challenges! Those colors are wonderful together, and your hearts pull it all together so nicely! Love the score lines, too!

Those background hearts are perfect for separating the panels. It's lovely.

This is just beautiful. I think you did a fabulous job with those colors, which I found to be tough to work with. Why didn't I just think to add more white? Great idea.

Lots of lovely details on your card. Love the embossed falling hearts, and the decision to score the white panels gives great added texture. Perfect placement of your three gem-stones! Great job with these challenge colours. Thanks for sharing with us at Dynamic Duos.

Jen we must have been working on the same wave length! LOL Our cards are so similar this week, I promise I didn't copy you! I like your heart background much better than my plain white background. :)
