Today’s card uses this unusual colour palette…
To be honest, I’m not quite sure what possessed me to try all these colours together but I think it works…
All of the stamps on my background come from the Basket of Blooms stamp set and were stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla card, using the ink pads shown above. I then used the Soft Sea Foam Light Stampin’ Blend marker to colour in the remaining background; so the only Very Vanilla showing is the centres of the flowers and leaves. That kept me out of mischief for a little while, lol.
I made a base from Soft Sea Foam card measuring 21 x 14.5, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I cut a piece of Just Jade card to measure 10 x 14 cm and trimmed my stamped and coloured card to 9.5 x 13.5 cm. I added the stamped one to the the Just Jade and added some Very Vanilla Gold Metallic edged ribbon before adding them to my card base.
I stamped the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set with Just Jade ink onto Very Vanilla card and cut it with the Everyday Label punch. I cut another label from Just Jade card, cut it in half and used the pieces to extend the ends of the stamped one.
I added a couple of little bits of the awesome Forever Gold Laser-cut speciality paper to the back of my label and then added it all to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals…
So, what do you think? Did I get these colours to work together?
