Friday, April 16 - ssnotime135 - A COLOR CHALLENGE -- Colors -- my FAV!!! I have been seeing this color combo popping up here and there and to my recollection I've only used these colors together once, a couple years back, and I am SO ready to put them together again. Here they are: Any shades of Purples, Lavenders, Browns, Ivory. Can't WAIT to see what you all do!!!
I know, I need to step away from the Kraft and Turning a New Leaf. At least I added in a new one this time: Butterfly Dreams. And (whispering) Background Basics: Tin Types. Oh, heck, I'm not going to whisper it--I love Tin Types!!! There! LOL, I really do love all that you can do with this versatile background set. LOVE IT! This time, I stamped it on Rustic Cream with Dark Chocolate and Plum Pudding, then added a layer of Plum Pudding, all as a base for those gorgeous butterflies. I stamped the butterflies with Plum Pudding and cut them out--I don't have those dies either. Then I added some brown flat-backed pearls to their bodies. I'm using Clean & Simple Sketch #85 for my layout, so I added the little leaves from Turning a New Leaf and the sentiment from Butterfly Dreams finishes it off.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime135 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
