ColorLab16

Howdy all!  Ready for another Thursday in the ColorLab?? Fun colors as usual!

Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight & Basic Black. 

Quite the adventure for me! I'm a procrastinator by nature and of course didn't do my project ahead. While watching tv tonight and tinkering with a different project, our power went off (blaming the wind?!?). Oh, what a challenge to get out of my room! My 13 year old son was in there with me as we seem to have similar TV interests (3 TV's, 4 people)! Luckily I had my Blackberry for a little light-it shouldn't be such a challenge to leave a room! Step here, dodge that...Add cleaning Stamp Room to top of To Do list!! ha!!

Anyway, after an hour in the dark, and browsing the catty for ideas by candle light, this is what I came up with!


Card base is Basic Black. Background accent layer of Daffodil Delight behind the stamped Whisper White background. I decided on the Simply Said set that hasn't seen ink for quite some time! I stamped the floral heart in Daffodil Delight and added the heart saying around it in Basic Black. I did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement on the heart and flowers. Next I added some solid Peach Parfait flowers and Basic Black outlines. Then some fun little flowers in both Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait. I grabbed the Corner Ticket punch for the Whisper White Corners and sponged the edges with Peach Parfait. I tied a Peach Parfait ribbon around the center before attaching the layers. For the saying, I stamped the saying in Basic Black, then added the floral heart image in Daffodil Delight and the very small flowers in Peach Parfait. I punched with the Wide Oval and attached to a Decorative Label of Peach Parfait. I opened my fun Bright Designer Buttons and pulled out two small flowers. I dug up some white embroidery thread and knotted it in the center before attaching with a glue dot.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you stop by the ColorLab and play along! We'd love to see your creations!
