But this sentiment caught my eye when I was designing my challenge card for Pals Paper Arts Challenge #202 this week. It is a colour challenge:
Aren't those colours gorgeous together? I immediately thought of the Fresh Prints Paper Stack. (Does that name make you think of Will Smith?)
I found one of the designs that used only Real Red and used it for my central panel. Here's my entry:
- I used the Crumb Cake and the Bermuda Bay to grunge up the panels a bit using the images from Gorgeous Grunge. I stamped them off once to lessen the intensity.
- I got out the Window Frames framelits and dusted them off. It's been a while since I last used them. I love the way they frame a 2 1/2" circle.
- The sentiment is part of the stamp set, Really Good Greetings, which has some great sayings in it like: "Live the life you've imagined!" and "Miss You Already!"
- Take a close look at those rolled flowers on the bottom left. No, I didn't use the Spiral Flower Die to make them. For two reasons: 1. The flowers it makes are too big for this design, even if you trim them smaller (which kind of defeats the purpose) and 2. I can't find mine. ( I think I lent it to someone, but I have no idea who. If you know who, please tell me, okay?) I used the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch to get two Real Red and one Bermuda Bay scalloped circle and then cut a spiral into them. I rolled them from the outside to the center on a BBQ skewer and hot-glued them onto their base (the center of the circle when I spiral cut towards the middle).
- The leaves are from the Bird Builder Punch and are cut from Crumb Cake cardstock and the white and Crumb Cake polka dot design from the Fresh Prints Paper Stack.
- The sentiment is stamped on a 2 3/8" circle die cut with the Circles Collection Framelits. It is framed by a narrow margin with Bermuda Bay circle punched with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.
- A Tea Lace Paper Doily adds a feminine touch under the focal point.
