In the meantime, I've been trying to get back in the groove with some of my old supplies.
I made this card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and this week's Color Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The color challenge called for Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, and Blackberry Bliss. I don't yet have Blackberry Bliss, so I subbed for Elegant Eggplant. It was the closest color, I think. I love how these colors work together.
I pulled out an old retired hostess set called Because I Care. I feel that it is very similar to the new hostess set called Best Thoughts and I've seen so many beautiful cards with the new set that I thought I would pull out this older similar one and give it a go.
One of the techniques I've seen people doing recently is stamping lined images in colored ink and NOT coloring it in. I have to say, I do like how it looks and how it turned out with this particular image. I actually stamped some of the smaller flower images in Wisteria Wonder and then hand cut them out and popped them on dimensionals on the main flower. I like the 3D effect it gives and it was easy to do.
Well, I better get going... I have chicken in the oven and I need to get the rest of dinner put together!
