Two Takes On A Trend March 2018

Hey everyone! Welcome to my Two Takes on a Trend post for Ellen Hutson in the CLASSroom. Myself and Michele Ferguson are using this palette to show our cards in TWO very different ways. (Be sure to check out the The CLASSroom for the post featuring the palette or her blog to see her beautiful card, too.)

Here is the Pantone Palette that we are using for our cards:


So, hold on to your hats. I softened the colors instead of making them brighter. I KNOW!! Same colors, just softer.

I used Distress Inks on watercolor cardstock for my focal image. The image was inlaid (much like a puzzle) using more layers of cardstock and adhesive.  I also stamped a few images off to the side in Versarmark which were heat embossed in gold. The sentiment is also stamped in Versamark, but is heat embossed in metallic navy (it’s a new fave).

I love how texture-y this card becomes simply by doing the inlay technique. It’s such a lovely way to make the sentiment the focal point, too.  Check out this prior card of mine to see what I mean. –> CLICK

As always, all my supplies are listed below and are linked to shop for your convenience. Thanks so much for stopping by today.  💗 (Don’t forget to stop by Michele’s blog and The CLASSroom, too!)

    LOVE the softer palette–such a great idea! And both your cards remind me of kimono fabric. So pretty!
