ColorLab44

Thursday! Wow, what a week! I was actually thinking last week (and I should know better!!) that summer was going well and not too crazy. Then Monday happened. Late night of baseball and I'm still trying to get back on track!!

The good news is it's ColorLab day!! Grab your lab coat and play along!  Make sure to stop over by the ColorLab and see what the other girls came up with!! That is my first stop most Thursday mornings!! 

Here are the colors, selected by yours truly this week!!


I was definitely thinking Spring when Julie asked for colors!! I think we've skipped right over Spring here in Nebraska. We went from cool and cloudy to hot and humid. Oh well! The flowers and things have been beautiful!! Here is my card:

 

Not the most creative card I've ever done, and probably not the most original (it looks quite a bit like the last card I posted), but I like it. Clean and Simple!! Card base is Concord Crush with background layers of Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight behind Whisper White. On the Whisper White, I stamped the Inspired by Nature flower image. I colored the stamp by using daubers. I was hoping for a softer look, but didn't really get it-guess I had a heavy hand :) It really almost looks like I used markers. Across the bottom I knotted a Concord Crush ribbon. Then I added the "HI THERE" from Fundamental Phrases with a flower accent (reinked the small flower and stamped it off once) on the Large Oval layered onto the Concord Crush Scallop Oval. 

That's it!! Thanks for stopping by today. I'm off to bed, not early by any means (baseball again tonight), but I hope to sleep in tomorrow and catch up.

I like your use of daubers. It may not have softened it as you had hoped, but I read your whole post wondering how you made the flower centers fuzzy. The daubers gave them a very realistic look.

I really love your flowers. They are gorgeous.

This is so gorgeous - so vibrant!!! I love how you added the little flower to the sentiment section.

I love it! That's a card I could actually duplicate! LOL It's very pretty, and I do like the color combo. My flowers are flourishing, and if the wind would leave them alone, they would be even better! :D
