Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a colour combination for you:
These colours immediately made me think of nature so I decided to use my new 'In The Meadow' stamp set for my card today:
I stamped my images in Archival Black ink and used my aquapainter and inks to colour them in before cutting out with my Circles Framelits. My Soft Suede card base is square and I layered this with a mat of Mossy Meadow and a piece of striped paper from the English Garden designer series paper pack that has a lovely watercoloured feel. I added a strip of Mossy Meadow and before I added a few twists of linen thread and a bow, decided to add a strip of wide Watermelon Wonder ribbon on something of a whim. The only other place I used this one of the challenge colours was on the butterflies next to my sentiment, so thought I would try a bold injection of colour; I liked it, so I kept it! This stamp set is not the type I am normally drawn to, but having seen some beautiful scenes created with it I decided I had to have it and I love the creative possibilities it offers.
Here's today's visual summary of the key products used to create today's card for easy reference:
Do visit the other Design Team members to see what they did with this week's colours; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too!
I have another busy day in store today (no rest for the wicked and all that!)
Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
