Wplus9 Color Cue
Hello everyone. Today is Wednesday. In a way the week is flying by. I was afraid it was going to go super slow since we had such a short week last week. Time is flying by for me. I can't believe that in 2 and a half weeks my oldest son will be a kindergarten graduate. When did that happen. It feels like just yesterday I was bawling over the fact that he was starting kindergarten. I am so proud of him though. He has graduated from speech therapy a long time ago and is doing so well. His writing and reading has grown leaps and bounds. His self-esteem is so strong, sometimes too strong :)
Anyway, on to the card for today. I am participating in another Color Cue from Wplus9. I really hope to get at least one of their stamp sets soon so I can play with them as well as doing the challenge.
The colors for this challenge are as follows:
I used PTI's stampers select white, enchanted evening, lemon tart and spring rain/stampin' up's bliss blue.
I started with the white cardbase at 4 1/4 square. I used enchanted evening next and then a layer of spring rain stamped using versamark with BB:hearts stamp set. I also took the circle stamp from Round & Round and randomly stamped that on top of the text using lemon tart ink.
The main image is from Round & Round in enchanted evening. I stamped the center in lemon tart but it was light so I stamped over it again with Stampin' Ups bliss blue ink and then inked around it with lemon tart.
The bottom is a layer of lemon tart cardstock that I spiffed up with a white gel pen and then took a copic marker and colored in between the ines. The ribbon is from my stash.
The sentiment is from Round & Round as well, stamped in enchanted evening.
I took a button I had in my stashe and tied it on with the equivelant of white, spring rain and enchanted evening DMC floss. I would have used lemon tart as well but it appears that I am out of that one. Guess I have another excuse to go craft shopping this weekend.
