Hello Friend using Inspire. Create. Share-and a few handy tips for Amazing You.

Hello Beautiful Friend- using the beautiful colour combination from Inspire, Create, Share (and the layout which I've used from Caseing the Catty for #164 from page 17 of the catalogue).


What a lovely colour combination.

Playing with colour sometimes takes me back to childhood. I still remember being so excited the first time I learnt that mixing primary colours gave you a whole new world of variations. The colour wheel had me fascinated. I still love the surprise of what will happen when you mix different amounts of colour. In this case yellow and blue = green...... and it turns out to be very similar to Cucumber Crush using Bermuda Bay.
A few handy tips using this set:
  • I cut the leaves from the flower (a bit tricky but worth it). So now I can stamp the leaves and flower in different colours
  • I inked the leaf section in Daffodil and then added Bermuda Bay using a sponge dauber to only the main leaf stem
  • I inked the sunray in Daffodil and added Bermuda Bay using the sponge dauber to just the edges and stamped this image repeatedly in a row.



It's an easel card so the left over strip was perfect for creating the inside base place holder.


thanks for looking today, let me know if you have any questions about how to do this.

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
