Hello! It's been a while since I've done anything with my blog. I decided to start posting on my blog more. I decided to play with the new In colors. Since I first saw them I knew I would have a hard time using Summer Starfruit so I decided to use that one first... I started with a color combo from the color coach. The colors are Elegant Eggplant (Regals collection), Summer Starfruit (2012-2013 Incolor) and Baja Breeze (Subtles collection). Then I went through my DSP and found something with a tone on tone look and ended up using a Baja Breeze sheet from the Twitterpated DSP pack. I decided by base was going to be Elegant Eggplant since that's what was sitting on my desk from a card I made earlier. I adhered the Baja Breeze DSP to the card base. Then I wrapped the Scalloped dots ribbon around the summer starfruit piece of cardstock and adhered that to the DSP. I then inked up my image and stamped off (making it a lighter version of summer starfruit) on to scrap paper before stamping onto Naturals white cardstock. With the outlined image of the same stamp I inked it in Summer starfruit, but left it at it's true color...making it a darker outline than the “inside” of the leaf. I adhered the image to a piece of summer starfruit and popped that up on to a piece of elegant eggplant. I adhered the focal piece so it would over lap the strip of summer starfruit. I stamped the “thank you” from Just believe stamp set and ran it through the big shot with the bitty banners framelits die. At first, I didn't really like the card all that much, but it grew on me after a while. Thanks for stopping by.
