You Are...

Wednesday, February 25, 2015


 
These colors are so warm and soothing.  They are helping to remind me that spring will come even though it sometimes feels like I'll never warm up.  My last card used these colors in Gelatos; this time a beautiful WPlus9 PURE Color combination.  Flamingo, Sweet Nectar, and Wild Mango work so beautifully together.
 

 
 I started by stamping the clothesline from Heartfelt Mix using Versafine Onyx ink.  I chose one banner image from Papel Picado to stamp, alternating the 3 colors.  I accented the banner with another tiny image from Papel Picado and added a sentiment from Unforgettable. I didn't want this to be a birthday card so I selectively inked the sentiment to leave off the portion that says,".....it's your birthday that's hard to remember."
 
 
 I die cut the stamped panel and a piece of black cardstock with the Sunshine Layers die.  I adhered them together, slightly off set, so that some of the black peeks out from behind for contrast, but the design stays mostly white.  A few rhinestones and a beautiful butterfly from the Small Butterfly Frame die finishes off the card.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
