This week, Makeesha Byl brings us Sketch #10 for her weekly Inkspiration Challenge. I love all those different layers, set off by that circle! Be sure to see what the other design team members have created ... Cindy, Karen, Kristy, Amy, and Renee.
I combined Makeesha's sketch with another favorite challenge - Stacey Schafer's Jewelry Color Inspired Challenge #44. I just lit up when I saw this color combo of Perfect Plum, Really Rust, More Mustard, and Very Vanilla, as these are the colors of my living room/dining room, along with some touches of red (SU translation: Riding Hood Red).
On the circle, the pheasant image from the new stamp set Autumn Days was first stamped in Perfect Plum. I masked the pheasant image by stamping it on a post-it note, cutting it out, and covering the original image. The wheat images were then stamped in More Mustard several times. The rubber was not re-inked each time (stamping off). The masking of the pheasant makes it look like the pheasant is standing in the foreground of the wheat, and the wheat is not "showing through" the pheasant image. The "get well wishes" sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Really Rust. The border of the Very Vanilla circle was then sponged with More Mustard ink.
It's difficult to see in the photo but the strip of More Mustard cardstock above the brads has two rows of paper piercing. There are Really Rust cardstock 1/4" Circles behind the More Mustard brads.
