Heart 2 Heart and Mojo Monday 197

This week I decided to combine Heart 2 Heart’s colour challenge along with Mojo Monday 197 sketch.





I got an order in last week and I was eager to try out my new stamp set. It’s was one that I always admire and envied my customer who got it. Now I’m the lucky one. Yeah!! I selected Outdoor Denim for my blue and I opted for the square card for the obvious reason that it is easier to cut out a square then a circle.




All the material used for this card is from CTMH. Here is the list.

Cardstock:
Outdoor Denim
Barn Red
Bamboo

Ink:
Outdoor Denim Z2104
Barn Red Z2104
Stamp Set:
Ciao D1461

Other:
3D tape
Hemp
Glue Dots
Crop-A-Dile
1 1/4" Circle Punch


I cut out the postage circle stamp with the CTMH circle punch. I then glued it to a piece of Barn Red cardstock and then I freestyles trimmed it for the matting.


I used the Crop-A-Dile small hole punch to create the look of a postage stamp.


At first I found the background much too plain. So I stamped the same image that was stamped in the center in outdoor denim for a tone on tone look. As well as a greeting on the top.

 
And Voila!! the final product.
