I used one of the new Split Card Texture dies. This pair of dies is not paired up with any particular stamp set but, as you see, will work with so many sets. I put some Tahitian Tide behind it to give the impression of a bright sky.
If you play regularly at As You See It, you'll have noticed that we have six types of challenge that rotate throughout the year. It's one of the things that drew me to this challenge site: a variety of challenges, including ones I hadn't seen in other places. We rotate a sketch, a colour combo, a theme, a fill-in-the-blank, a recipe and a speed stamping challenge.
This week, it's Recipe Challenge time. This is one of the challenges I hadn't seen anywhere else. In my head, it's a bit like that old cooking show, Chopped. You get five ingredients that you must use but in any way you like. Interesting, yes?
Inspiration for today's card came from the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm making an effort to show some affection to some of my older sets. It's so easy to overlook old favourites in the flurry of a new catalogue, isn't it?
And, of course, the Seashells embossing folder is a delight all by itself so I just had to use it for the background!
