Last stab at my fav color combos

If you haven't noticed this week I like BRIGHT colors especially when they are mixed together. Tonight's card is the last one of these color combos for the week. I used daffodil delight card stock 119683 along with pacific point card stock 111350 and ink 126951. The last color in the combo is melon mambo card stock 115320 and ink 126948.  The sentiment is from Junes paper pumpkin kit and the flower is from mixed bunch stamp set 125537. The accent is from dotted designer paper that is retired (:(). As I wait most impatiently for UPS to arrive nex week with my new order I will be busting out some OLD stamps back out to give them   life again.  I typically try to use all new product on my posts so that you can take advantage of purchasing if you like. But I Am a single mother who has to use what she has in order to buy more:)) this card is double embossed - the first picture shos the overall card and the secon picture shows where I ran it through the big shot with 2 different embossing folders. You should get a very unique look.

Oldie but goodie

I have spent the week playing with color combos and decided to throw back to my other love monochromatic  for next weeks blog posts. Tonight's card is one I used copic  markers to create a crushed curry flower and used designer paper to pull in the coordinating print. The blue color is is Midnight muse. Hope you enjoy!

Playing with canvas

Tonight's post is something that I got bored and tried last night. I am really trying to stick to Color families so these colors are gum ball green, summer star fruit, and rich razzleberry. I love the richness of these colors yet they don't come on too wintery. This was a blank canvas that I decided to play with. ( note to self.... Heat set after finishing for A faster drying time). The stamps didn't stamp too well unless I put my Hand behind the canvas. Will definitely have to play around with this and other mediums as well. I used my stamp and write markers to fill in some of the color. The stamp set is again one of my favs and is secret garden. 

Color combos

I was playing around with color yesterday as I sit and wait a couple of days for the ups man to bring my new order. What I discovered was the possibilities are endless.... Stampin up makes it so easy to mix colors because they have laid them out for you in families so they are guaranteed to coordinate when used together. Makes life a lot easier for me :) here is the card I made using tangerine tango, old olive and tempting turquoise . What is your favorite color combo?
