Hi stampers! I swear, I'm going to try to do better at posting :-) I have been stamping a bit here and there lately so that's good! And I'm working really hard at getting some ideas going for my convention swaps so that's progress I suppose!
I do have to admit while I don't dislike this year's in colors, they aren't as easy for me to use as some from previous years. But, in time, I always warm up to all of them I suppose. This time I'm struggling most with the cucumber and watermelon colors. In general, they just aren't colors I'm particularly drawn to...until I realized my toes are pretty much painted watermelon wonder, ha! I guess I do have a thing for BRIGHT colors in the summer time, especially on my toes! That's making me look at the color just a tad differently now.
I also happened to glance down at my grid paper the other day and notice a color combo that I NEVER would have thought of on my own. The colors were from a number of projects and just kind of came together by accident to speak to me! And I was really happy to see watermelon wonder working so great with Bermuda bay and hello honey!
You'll see another project soon with them too with a bit of a different tone. For now, here is what I'm sharing today! Who knew these rather bright colors could make a vintage-ish card!?!
Stamps: Choose happiness
Paper: Very vanilla, hello honey
Ink: Hello honey, bermuda bay, watermelon wonder
Accessories: Linen thread, burlap ribbon, gold sequin trim
It's always great when a "mess" like my grid paper inspires a card!
