I have tried and tried and tried to love Soft Suede, but just really seem to have a hard time working with it. I know it has lots of potential, but it just doesn't sing to me like some of the other colors! LOL I went for it anyhow though! It really is a very pretty combination of colors.
Here is my card for this challenge:
This card is a little different because it opens gate fold style instead of on the side. I scored it at 2 1/8" and then flipped it completely around and scored it again on the other end at 2 1/8". That leaves 4 1/4" as your center background. I made three little image panels and connected two to the right side and the third one to the left side so when you open the card two go one way and the middle one goes the other way.
I muddied up the images with the Spritzer tool and used Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz to make the splotches.
I used Stampin Up!s new Dazzling Details to give the leaf veins some shimmer, but didn't have the patience to let it dry for the picture! LOL Once it dries it will be flat and smooth looking.
I stamped Just for You on 1" circles using Pear Pizzazz and sponged the edges and added them to the ends of each panel.
Here you can see the way the panels fall when the card opens up.
Fun challenge! Thanks for hosting CCMC ladies! :)
