I finally had a little bit of time to sit down today and create something I could share with you all. The 2 earlier cards were actually the last of the 5 cards I made yesterday. The earlier part of today, after catching up on my ironing finally, was spent creating for my Secret Sister in our 3rd Round of our Secret Sister swap on Stampin’ Up in Oz. I won’t be able to share those creations though until after the reveal late April as I think she browses my blog from time to time and I wouldn’t want to spoil any surprise.
Next challenge up on my list is the ColorLab Color Challenge #28.
At first glance these colours make me think ‘Valentines’. Maybe it also has something to do with the hearts floating around in the test tubes and also that Valentine’s Day is tomorrow (for those of us in Australia), but I’m kind of over all the ‘hearts’. There’s only one man in my life that needs a Valentine’s card and I already have more than that so I’m not making another…….sorry but I’m not.
So what else to make with these colours????
There’s a lot of cards floating around on blogs at the moment where images have been stamped, or punched pieces added to some cardstock and then put through the Big Shot using a Textured Impressions plate. Those that I have seen look great so I thought I’d give it a go myself, but just the stamped one.
I decided the lovely flower image from Elements of Style might work well for this and even though I feel it’s a very simple card I love the effect it creates.
I was going to add some retired Kraft taffeta ribbon but I didn’t like it. I also tossed around for a while with whether to layer the sentiment on Real Red or Crumb Cake scallop oval punch. In the end I think the Real Red looked nicer.
I’m still not sure if it needs something in the lower right corner. Maybe if I remade it I’d place the flowers at a different angle.
So what do you think??
I’m just glad I could use that colour combo for a ‘non’ Valentine’s card………lol
Till next time…
