Pure Color With Kara #3

Friday, August 21, 2015

 Join me today on the WPlus9 Design Blog for two projects that feature another one of my favorite PURE Color Dye Ink Combinations {and a chance to win a prize for playing along!}.  I was inspired by a scarf that belonged to my mother-in-law.  You can see a picture of the scarf {HERE}.  I made two projects, one masculine, one feminine and they both feature a technique of stamping text over stamped images.  But before you head over there, I have one more project  to share here that uses the same beautiful color combination:
I used one of the images from Backgrounds and Borders 4  to create my pattern.  Stamping a few in one color before moving on to another color.  I wanted to keep it simple and let the pattern and colors be the star.  I also wanted to keep the card very occasion neutral so that I can give it to my husband anytime I want to leave him a little note.
I positioned the die cut 'smile' from Flower Doodles Dies so that the Nautical Navy dot looked like the dot for the 'i' :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
