Aqua and Green togetherPosted: July 11, 2011
I needed a card for a bridal shower on the weekend. Looking around for inspiration I decided to take my colour scheme from the gift bag I was using. The gift bag was very geometric in its design but I didn’t follow that I just needed the pretty summery colours: aqua and green.
I cut a mask in a post it note and brayered tempting turquoise and certainly celery. I then removed the mask and stamped the daisies in black. It took countless repetitions with the daisy stamp before I had a solid image. Even when I stopped it did not quite have complete coverage. I was using my SU classic basic black ink pad. It is not that old so I am a bit frustrated that I find it hard to completely ink a larger stamp with it. If anyone has a favourite black inkpad please let me know. It might be time to branch out.
I matted the image panel and then tried a white card base and a turquoise; as you can see the turquoise won the challenge.
My daughters and I went to the bridal shower and enjoyed watching the bride ooh and aah about all her lovely homewares. She is getting married in August and my girls are going to play violin at the wedding. It will be the first of three weddings they are playing at this summer. I guess I should be thinking about wedding cards too.
