A Bonus Post!!!

Hi everyone!

I thought I might share another card … cos I soooo dislike the one I shared with you earlier!!! Why did I post that card??? I guess it was because it was a rather nice sketch layout … and also to remind you that a colour combo might not work for you … but believe me … I did see some other gorgeous ideas for  that colour combo … so just keep working on the balance of colour if you are unhappy!

So … I decided that I might have another go at the colour challenge … and this time try a different approach!

Challenge CYB 2

Here is my new attempt!!! …


Much better … don’t you think??? Phew! I was beginning to think I had really lost my MOJO!

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Sets: Lovely as a Tree, On Your Birthday
  • Cardstock: Riding Hood Red – A5 (21 x 14.8 cm); Very Vanilla – 10.1 x 14.5 cm; Bordering Blue – scraps, More  Mustard – scraps
  • Inks: Basic Grey, More Mustard, Bordering Blue, Riding Hood Red
  • Extras: Sponge Daubers, Blue Dew Drops (non SU!), Paper Piercer and mat, Dotto
  • Notes: I have used an oval window mask and stuck it to the vanilla card with some “dotto” – which is removable glue (a bit like the glue on post it notes). This just holds it firm while you work. I stamped the tree image inside the window and sponged around the edge with the yellow & blue inks … then I removed the mask and stamped the phrase onto the bottom of the image.

Hope you are looking forward to a lovely weekend. C U again soon!
