Hello all! Hope you're having a good weekend. Trying to get back on track here. My husband and I went to California's Napa Valley last week, and I'm having trouble getting back on schedule! And with Open Houses next weekend and projects not planned-that is NOT a good thing!! Napa however, was very good!! We highly recommend it!
I'm trying to stamp a few things and get back in creative mood. I was browsing challenges last night and found this color challenge at Stampin' Royalty. Had to do it!!
Any excuse to use purple and I'm in! And, French Foliage was out from something else I was doing, so of course I used it too!! I really do have other sets!! This card uses the Baby Wipe technique. I'm trying it out to see if it would be a good thing to do for an Open House card. I'm liking it so far-love the blended look of the colors!!
The card base is Elegant Eggplant with a More Mustard layer behind the background of Naturals White. The leaves are multi-colored with Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive & More Mustard. Over those, I stamped So Saffron Splatter dots. The edge was also sponged with So Saffron. The ribbon was attached before layering the background onto the More Mustard. A separate piece was put into an Antique Brad to look like a bow, and attached over the straight piece. If I'd been thinking, I would have included the straight piece also in the brad-it lays a little better that way! The saying is from Word Play and was stamped in Elegant Eggplant with a light leaf over it. The edge was sponged with So Saffron, and a few splatter dots added. After layering onto More Mustard and Elegant Eggplant, it was attached to the background with dimensionals.
Pretty quick and easy card! Love the colors!! Thanks for stopping by today!!
