Back to Basics

This week we have a super bright, and super fun colour challenge for Lauren's My Time to Create DT.



When I looked at this dress I thought "Summer Fun"!! And I decided to make a fun card for a summer cocktail party. I interpreted these colours to be Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, So Saffron, Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, and White.

This is the card I made with these fun, and bright colours.



The backgrounds were all made by stamping using versamark to achieve a tone on tone look. I think it's great to pull out some basic techniques like stamping background paper.

The stamps I used are from the Cocktail Party Set from A Chemistry with Paper.

The sentiment is embossed with clear embossing powder to make it stand out more, because on the Guava paper the versmark ink is not as distinctive.



These colours were so fun, that I am sure the entire DT has great projects in store for you. Just look at the samples below!
