You Are Appreciated - Double Trouble #163 partnering with Inspiration Station

This is my second Design Team project for Double Trouble "Let's Get Krafty #163" celebrating Earth Day. Our partner for this challenge, Inspiration Station's "Prompt 60" was a photo of the World, our Earth. We thought using biodegradable, recycled materials would be a Earth Day Celebration and Thing 1's requirement was to use Kraft paper or any product made from Kraft-type paper. Twisted Sister wanted us to include blue shades because 71% of Earth is water. My inspiration was the globe and using shades of color blue.  

Using the same Color Dare Board #594 "Six Pack" that I used yesterday; but this time I used all the colors in my focal point.  And again... the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #571.  


Using these colors I created an appreciation Teacher's card using Kraft-type patterned paper for the background, cut 3/4 inch banners in a galaxy-like patterned paper and layered with Sapphire cardstock.    

For the focal point... Chose a woodgrain patterned paper, layered with Sapphire cardstock and adhered to the Kraft background.  Images were stamped on white cardstock with Memento black ink, cut with Brother's Scan'n'cut and colored using Copic Sketch pens to closely match the CTMH colors. The sentiment was stamped directly in the right-hand bottom corner of woograin panel and images adhered with 3D thin foam tape for dimension. 

Please hop on over and join us at Double Trouble and check out the Design Teams inspiration, and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.

A globe is perfect for a teacher card - love the stack of books as well.

Really love that globe image, and another example of a wonderful background with just using some different papers. I am inspired to get out some of my colored images and copy this design!
