Another Neutral palette and a park bench.

Hello again, here's another card I created in the lead up to CI#35 when I did quite a bit of experimenting, and struggled to make a card using only 3 colours. It's harder than you think!

I used the same colour scheme and another new set - Sitting Pretty stamp set, and Pretty Park framelits. I confess the park bench was the main draw card in purchasing this set, but I love the embossing effect with the pavement.  The bulldog will appeal to many, and the sweet little bird and squirrel are very cute too. The other park bench is very ornate and I'm sure I will love it once I start using it.
Gray Granite watercolours really well. I was surprised how easy it is to line up the leaves and the pot plant too. - Super effective.


I think I'm going to take Jackie Noble's tip and cut my  sentiment so it's more user friendly for me. 
Here's her photo of her stamp. You can see her post here- and she has used the other sweet park bench from this set


I made this into an easel card, and Jackies' tip makes perfect sense for the anchor panel to be the other half of the sentiment.


I also combined this stamp set with the other gorgeous sitting here thinking of you set- the porch swing. And Denita Wright-Smee showcased this effect at Onstage with her samples. I think the cushions just make it- what do you think?


If you would like to see the other samples on the Neutrals Colour INKspiration bloghop you can start here. This was my project.

 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
