I got the Pottery Barn catalog in the mail the other day and I decided to use some of the color combinations to make some cards. I was looking for a way to start making more spring color combinations . . . hope you like them.
The first color combination was wild wasabi, barely banana, kraft and chocolate chip. It seemed really fresh and fun! This card also whipped up really quick - super simple . . . the daffodil heads are popped up on pop dots and are cut out of barely banana.
Stamps: Sentiment by River City Rubber Works, SU Beautiful Life Paper: Barely banana, Kraft, wild wasabi, chocolate chip, whisper white (SU) and Designer paper by Lasting Impressions. Ink: Timber Brown Staz On, SU Classic Wild wasabi Accessories: Brown polka dot ribbon, singer sewing machine, brown thread, pop dots, large brown brads
This combination was inkspired a little bit by the catalog (this gorgeous sheet set), and a little bit by the striped paper that I had in my collection of 12x12's -- by Making Memories. The colors are taken with teal, yo yo yellow and a green that SU does not have an close enough match of and white. I colored Tilda to match the paper. I really liked the yellow (even though it was not in the paper at all) and thought it worked, (that part came from the sheet set) so I added it. It also made it a perfect match for her raincoat.
Raincoat and boots were embossed with glittery embossing powder (I colored my image with my versamarker to make it sticky for the embossing powder -- this mostly worked but the image bled a little bit). The whole image was colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The Tilda image and the oval sentiment are both popped up on pop dots. The centers of the brads (yellow corduroy) came from last year at Creating Keepsakes convention -- they were part of Becky Higgins favorite things, and at the time, I thought they were lame -- but they worked perfectly on this card. Sentiment was created using my Karen Foster Design Snap Stamps. Oh and the green paper actually had darker green polka dots, but I used my white gel pen (Signo) to add white dots instead. I really like the way it looks with the white dots.
