It's All About the Colors


Another Monday...who likes Monday? Raise your hand. I didn't see many hands. Maybe we should have a vote and cancel it. :-) Plus, it is an ugly, rainy day here AND worst of all, I have a dental appointment. I cringe every visit...not my favorite thing.

The CAS190 challenge on Splitcoaststampers is a color challenge today. As it turned out, I really like the colors we are to work with: Aqua, Coral (one of my favorite colors), yellow, and white. I got as close to those colors as my inks allowed.

Recipe:
Stamps-Hero Arts Real Leaves-- (a set of four and I used only three) Small Liquid Amber, Sweet Redbud, Small Gingko, -- Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps/Poppies and Greetings (sentiment)
Paper-PTI White cardstock, Stampin'Up! Bermuda Bay
Ink-Stampin'Up! Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry, Memento Lady Bug and Tuxedo Black
Accessories-yellow button and 3/4' circle punch

Oooo, I have those very same leaf stamps and never thought to use them this way, Benzi. What a fantastic design! Now I'll have to dig those out and do something with them. :-D
