These summer weeks are flying by!
It’s Thursday again. Time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge. This week, it’s a color challenge –
Nice, fun, bright summer colors too!
I was in the mood to play around with my stamps this week and I created a nifty background pattern using the Cucumber Crush and Tangelo Twist. I was a bit on the fence as just what to do with it though. I sat it aside and I moved on until I could figure out how to use it.
I made a couple of peaches because the stamp was still in my work area and these colors looked peach-like. After playing around with different card bases and card stock, this was my final card using both stamped pieces –
I love it! It’s sooo fresh and fun! Don’t you agree?
I really liked the plaid background too. I made it by inking up my stamp, and stamping it twice to get this 2 color effect, just like stamping off. I did it in both directions.
The finish was stamping the words in the Tangelo Twist. Done. Love it!
These peaches were inked up with the lighter, new color Peek-a-Boo Peach then edged in the ink pad with the darker Tangelo Twist. Gave lots of dimension to the fruit.
So, now that I have enticed you with these delicious colors, go create something yourself and join us at Create with Connie and Mary. And, take a look at what the other designers have made too!
