A little late this week but here are my cards for Less is More challenge week #169 with a sketch and Addicted to CAS challenge #37 with the code word 'Grunge'. Firstly here is the sketch:
and my first card adheres pretty strictly to the sketch I think. I made a circle from gold twine, added a die cut scroll, after sponging the background area using a Memory Box border die as the stencil, then overstamping with circles from Stampin' Up! Happy Watercolour to accentuate the circles - and to meet the 'grunge' criteria. I also stamped the lines from Gorgeous Grunge by SU, after stamping off first. The sentiment comes from another SU set, from their Sale-a-Bration catalogue, called See Ya Later. I just masked off the clouds and raindrops above the words. and the line below, to keep the sentiment simple.
After I had made this card I kept having a rainbow in mind, with it being an arc of a circle - a bit of a stretch maybe, but I'm giving it a go. The clouds at the sides echo the sketch, and I used the same sentiment as before. Puddle splats from the Gorgeous Grunge SU stamp set provide the grunge element here. I adhered the raindrops from a Sweet 'n Sassy die set which included the clouds, and coated the drops with Glossy Accents.
