Abstract & Multi Textured Card - CCMC308

The colors for this week's challenge at Create With Connie and Mary are definitely not something I would normally put together. I didn't have any current DSP in any of these colors, so I decided to make my background with the brush stroke stamps from Work of Art. I loved the abstract look so much that I decided to finish it off with some washi and punched stars and leave it as is. Simple, yet lots of different textures.

Recipe (all Stampin' Up!)

Stamps: Work of Art 

Ink: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Red Glimmer Paper

Misc: Beach House washi tape, Itty Bitty Accents punch pack (star punch), glue dots

To finish off the inside, I punched some little stars into the white paper so the red shows through.
