This card is for today's color challenge, CC257, to use chocolate chip, really rust, and sage shadow together, with using patterns as the dessert option.
I used SU chocolate chip card stock as my card base and rolled my SU cornelli lace wheel, inked in Versamark, across it for a tone-on-tone pattern (dessert #1). I used the Poppin' Pastels technique (with SU Stampin' Pastels in really rust and sage shadow) to create my Circle Circus images. (I'm counting the pattern in the bottom circle as my dessert #2.) The center of the middle circle is popped up on a dimensional. The mats are coordinating textured card stocks from DCWV.
The twine was rescued from a clothing hangtag just last week. I didn't know I'd be using it so soon! I thought it was just the embellishment that this card needed.
I'm not sure how I feel about this card, although I think it will be a good masculine card. I'm getting better with using my Stampin Pastels, but I'm not used to the more "messy" look that results from the poppin' pastels technique. I guess I'm more used to crispness. Oh, well, hopefully this look will grow on me.
Thanks for looking!
