I'm back!! and on a mission to keep this going! Having fun and hoping to keep the creativity flowing!! Came up with this one all on my own, no challenge required :)
My goal was a card to send to a friend who's birthday I missed recently. Secondary goal was to use my Stampin' Blends. Remarkable You was an easy choice! To determine the color, I looked at my blends and chose a Happy color... Calypso Coral!!
Coloring is not something that comes naturally to me. Not soothing or relaxing like some say. But I'm trying to do it more, especially with the NEW Stampin' Blends! They are pretty awesome!!
Card base is Calypso Coral with an accent layer of Basic Gray behind the background DSP in Calypso Coral from the Delightful Daisy pack.
I stamped the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento on Thick Whisper White cardstock and colored with my Light and Dark Calypso Coral markers and used the Color Lifter to lighten a few areas. I like it! To finish, I went over the colored areas with the Wink of Stella glitter pen. LOVE!! The flower image is mounted on an accent layer of Basic Gray. Last accent is the 1/8" Sheer Calypso Coral ribbon that is knotted around. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach this layer. The saying is also stamped with Black Memento directly on the DSP. Inside says "And I'm so grateful for you".
Thank you for stopping by!! Be back SOON!!
