Colors in my mind
Hello everyone!!! I hope your Tuesday is going okay. I have been busy since 1am :) My little guy slept with me since 1 so I could get some more sleep but he ended up fidgeting and fussing enough to keep me up every hour until 7 when I had to get up. I am feeling fine now but I can assure you that in a few hours I will be ready to collapse and tonight is a long one for me. My husband is cub scout leader and my son tags along until he is old enough to officially be a cub scout. Tonight is pack meeting and I go to those, of course tonight I have to go because I am going to have my son with me until it is time for pack meeting. (I have an appt for one son in town 45 mins away and...well...it is really a long story so I will just leave it at that.) Anywho, no one wants to come here and hear about my life's details.
I have been thinking about color combonations since reading Geny's blog post here. I think she does a magnificant job of combining colors and making them beautiful. I am still sad that she is no longer with Papertrey Ink.
So, since last night/early this morning I have been thinking of the pastel PTI colors. I decided I was going to put together spring moss and spring rain together. Later I decided to add in lavendar moon. It was actually a good thing I did because it turns out I do not have any spring rain cardstock. I plan on making up a list of all the colors I need. I also need to get the new formula ink of the original colors. I am also working on getting all the bigger ink pads for all the PTI colors. I am just loving them all.
Like I said, I wanted to use spring rain but unless you look really hard you are not going to see it on this card. When spring rain came out I was just buying the cubes and it is in the old formula that has somehow ended up watering out, or whatever they are saying happened. I used the spring rain ink to stamp background basics: spots and dots on the kraft cardstock mat and then inked around the kraft card base. That is why I have the blue button. I hope it doesn't look too out of place since it is hard to see the spring rain on the rest of the card.
I hope you like this card as much as I do. It may have not been the card I planned on making but it is the card I ended up with and I am very pleased. I am so happy to finally be wrapping up my thank you cards. I need to get working on a birthday card. My niece will be 14 tomorrow (OMGosh, I am old) and her birthday party will be this Saturday, so thankfully I have a bit more time to get it done and get her a gift as well.
