I wanted to play along with a couple of challenges in my free time this afternoon so I combined the always fabulous Mojo Monday sketch (congrats Julee and the team on your 300th challenge!) with the Dynamic Duos colour challenge...
I decided to use my favourite new colour, Coastal Cabana, as my choice in addition to Basic Grey (and a couple of other neutrals)...
I must say, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out (particularly considering how long it took me to make lol!). I used the Love and Laughter set for the cake, reverse masked it with post-it notes and sponged inside with Coastal Cabana ink. I added some bling using rhinestones as well as a little Simply Pressed clay flower that I made with dyed Coastal Cabana clay. The sentiment is from the new Label Love set, trimmed out with my paper snips then layered onto a Coastal Cabana artisan label punched shape. The circle element is a die-cut Basic Grey doily, layered over a Basic Grey circle. The designer paper is the new Modern Medley paper (so versatile in vanilla and black), and the Coastal Cabana panel was stamped with a flourish from Flowering Flourishes. The background piece is Smoky Slate card, and all the panels were layered on Basic Grey.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Label Love, Love and Laughter, Flowering Flourishes
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Basic Grey
Paper: Modern Medley dsp, Coastal Cabana, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla
Tools: Artisan label punch, delicate doilies sizzlit, circles #2 die, simply pressed flower mold
