It’s a colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches this week and Bev has set us this great combination:
My card came about because I really, really wanted to use the Baby Bear stamp that had just arrived (with lots of other goodies!) and I decided to see how he looked using Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz, finishing the details off using Archival Basic Black. And I think he looks great!
I stamped my sentiment in Calypso Coral and decided to pick that up in one of my mat layers. A skinny black layer really helped pull this together. My card base is also Basic Black – the card is 5 x 5 inches – it’s a while since I’ve made a square card – I’ve said before that for some reason I think and work in inches when I make those! I know, it’s weird.
This is a lovely stamp set – you’d think I’d be overdosing on cute as we got a new arrival to our household this week – a kitten called Tarragon! So he’s taking up a lot of my time (and his brother, who we are looking after for a friend). He hasn’t been allowed into the room where I craft yet – I think there are interesting times ahead!
Anyway, I really like this cute card, hope you do too!
Don’t forget that it was my 100th blog post on Tuesday – you have until next Tuesday, 21st June to comment and be in with a chance to win the blog candy!
See you on Sunday.
