Hi stampers! I did something I haven't done in a LONG time this weekend. I played in a color challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. Now, I have absolutely no good reason for not playing along in such a long time other than I just kind of forgot! Shame on me! Well, I picked a good one to come back to as the colors were so pretty! The challenge was to use island indigo, lucky limeade, and basic gray. So many possibilities but I decided to do something simple since the colors were so vibrant. I'm really on a kick with the white space and clean and simple thing as of late. It's fun to do something different! What do you think?
Stamps: Fresh vintage (SAB), fabulous phrases
Paper: Whisper white, island indigo, lucky limeade, neutrals DSP stack
Ink: Island indigo, basic gray
Accessories: Everyday enchantment ribbon & brad pack (SAB), basic pearls
There was a bit of cutting here but it's not too fussy and that image cuts out pretty quickly. I also used the "wallpaper" pattern of the DSP which I don't normally use. I tend to stick to the polka dots, hehe. And again, I really love the font of the fabulous phrases set and think it works beautifully with the fresh vintage set. I tried a variety of sentiments down in the corner but I liked the simplicity of this one and the tiny size!
Here's a quick tip if you use the clear mounts: if I can't decide on a sentiment or placement of a stamp, I will take the stamp unmounted and lay it where I want it. You can then kind of visualize what it's going to look like. It's harder to do with the wood mounts so this is just another reason I love the clear mounts! I can waffle back and forth until I figure out which one I like without wasting paper or messing up my project!
Hope you can put this tip to good use! And don't forget about the fun challenges over on SCS like I did:-)
