Hello, Color My Heart fans!
This week's challenge colours are a bunch of cooler shades:
Well, these didn't inspire me to sing the blues, but they did remind me that my DH is going out of town (actually, half-way around the world!) next week for work, and I like to tuck a little love into his suitcase. So, I made this card:
It is a 3.5" x 8" card, a different size for me. I wanted to feature this lovely stamp set which is included in the "For Always" Workshop-on-the-Go.
I've already put together the lay-out from this kit, using photos from our 25th anniversary (for those of you married only a few years--they go SOOO fast!). Which I'll post someday--just have to find a duplicate of one of our original wedding photos. We were so young and cute...
Anyway, some great sentiments and images in this set, fit for a "missing you" card.
One of the fun things you can do with a solid image stamp is to create a 3D-papier tole effect. I simply stamped the image three times, and cut the pieces out, omitting part of the image each time, then stacking them up with foam tape, see above.
I also used some of the stamps to embellish the inside of the card:
So, what do those cool blue shades inspire you to create? Come on over to the Color My Heart blog, see what the other gals have done, and link up your projects. We love to see your take on the challenge colours!
