I really like the colour combination of orange and blue. It's probably my all time fave. This card features a stamp from Stampington & Company called Starfish Document from the Christine Adolph Shore Cliff collection. I stamped it in Black Sta-zon on white glossy cardstock that I had first splashed with some Distress Stains and Inks. I stamped it again and fussy cut the starfish, on which I deepened the orange and applied some Distress Stickles. The Stickles were more for texture than colour.
While I had the white glossy out I made a background panel by brayering Kaleidocolor ink and overstamping in Black Sta-zon with a compass stamp. The Celebrate is a Stampin' Up! stamp. The postal mark is a Michelle Ward Post Cube stamp by Stampington & Company. Square black brads seemed the right thing to use to mount the layers to the marine blue Italian silk cardstock. The latter seems to glow.
This is a happy card. I just sat down and played without much thought. It ended up being just the card I needed for a travelling man's birthday. Love when that happens! And it fits with the Creative Accents Challenge to use orange this month.
