Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Saturday, April 10, 2010


If you're a fan of Close to My Heart products, you'll love the new blog, Heart 2 Heart Challenges. This week, a color challenge featuring Sweet Leaf, Sunflower and Cocoa. I haven't created anything "just for fun" in quite a while, so this was a perfect opportunity for me to get my fingers inky and have fun just playing with my stamps! I've been meaning to use this darling set, "Smiles" and I wanted to play up that doodle-y look, so I used a very wet waterbrush to give a handmade, sketchy look to the image. I also wanted to keep the color combo soft, so along with the three challenge colors, I added a lighter shade of brown (Bamboo) and yellow (buttercup).

This card would help me feel better, if someone sent this my way. I like the stitching, and the softer color tones.

Love all the little details - stitching, the swiped edge of the Sweet Leaf cardstock, the scrunched ribbon and the way you stamped the flower part on the focus square and part off. Very pretty!
