Holy cow this week has sure gone fast! Of course, I did sleep most of the week away and that might have something to do with it. Thursday was a good day without any naps so I must have caught up and I’m feeling so much better.
Since today is Friday that means that it’s also the Just For Fun® Friday Color Challenge. I really enjoyed working with the colors this week. At first I thought ewwwww what can I do . . . and then it all just came together.
Okay, okay I know you’re saying ewwwww, but trust me . . . . give them a try! I think you’ll be surprised. We would love to have you play along with us! You don’t have to use Just For Fun® stamps, especially if you don’t have any yet. However, if you do play along, you might just be the lucky winner of a 25% Discount so you can go shopping! All you have to do is make a card/project using the above colors and post a direct link using Mr. Linky on the Just For Fun® Blog.
Here’s my card!
I incorporated a few of the techniques that I learned from Wendy Vecchi last weekend. You might also recognize this sketch from Wendy’s book, “make art, studio 490 style II”. I was fascinated by her project on page 16, “you must believe.” I changed the design up to fit what I was working on, but left the general sketch as it was.
Hopefully you can see in this picture, the white shadow of the Wildflower Silhouette.
That’s one of the things I learned last weekend, stamping in white pigment and then inking over the top of it. When I had finished I felt the image was just a little to light and needed the extra pop of block to stand out on the card. Lots of over stamping using a variety of JFF backgrounds. What can I say . . . it was just way too much fun!
