The River Bends

Good Morning Stampers!

It's Tuesday which means we have a brand new Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge! This week the challenge is a Color Challenge of - Black, Turquoise & Yellow AND to be inspired by this photograph from the House of Turquoise:

I think that are some pretty textures and patterns in this photo! Those chevrons are so dramatic! Here is my card.

I used two different stamps from Gourmet Rubber Stamps. The first one is a Lizzie Anne Design called Ship, the other is also a Lizzie Anne Design called The River Bends. I sponged my scene using the Tim Holtz Distress Inks that are the Spring 2012 Limited Edition colors of Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade. I also used some Daffodil Delight and More Mustard from Stampin Up! to define the sunset and sun. My yellow polka dot paper is from the Simple Stories 6x6 paper pack called Summer Fresh.  I sponged the edges of this with More Mustard also. My chevron embossing folder is also from Stampin Up! and I sponged more of the Peacock Feathers Ink on top to help define the chevrons. I think that this saying with this image would make a beautiful sympathy card, which are always the hardest to make, I think anyway. I have used my favorite technique of sponging scenes :)

For my layout I used this week's Sketch from Mojo Monday #254
