Live Your Dream...

Today's Clean & Simple challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is to make your own background.

I made mine by using a smaller coordinating stamp and then running it through my die cut machine!

The stamp I used is one of my all-time favorites called Live Your Dream and unfortunately, it was only available for a short time. It is now retired, but I just couldn't resist inking it up this morning! I stamped my image in multiple colors by using my Stampin' Write Markers.

This color combination (Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzaz, & Whisper White) comes from this week's Curtain Call Color Challenge! I have to admit that these bright colors are not ones I would normall use with this image, but I like how it turned out!

The sketch is from Friday's Clean&Simple Fall-To-Sketch! The die cut I used to make the shape of my main image is non-Stampin' Up. Everything else is, though!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous Monday!
