Guess what? I'm a Guest Star Stamper at the Color Throwdown today! And I was SUPER excited when I saw this week's color challenge:
Dude, I seriously love that picture of the Eiffel Tower! Isn't it gorgeous?! I interpreted the colors as Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black, and Whisper White, and I made this:
I'd seen cards with that kind of background before, but I went to search for it in the SCS tutorials and I kept thinking it was called "galaxy" something or other but it's Northern Lights :) This was another one of those techniques that up until I finished the card I thought I was going to have to chuck it and start over, my background just didn't look "right" to me until I got the Pool Party EP "stars" on there. I didn't use the Embossing Buddy on the paper before I stamped the Gorgeous Grunge spatter, so I got stray embossing powder on there but I think it kind of works for what I was going for with this card so I'm calling that a happy accident. The star is also Pool Party EP on top of Wisteria Wonder cardstock, and I wasn't sure what to do for a sentiment until I found that "Wish Big" from A Dozen Thoughts and it was perfect!
So thanks to the Color Throwdown team for letting me be a Guest Star Stamper today! I had a ball making my stellar card :)
