Shrek the Musical and Dynamic Duos

We went to see Shrek the Musical at a local theatre yesterday and it was amazing!  Great characterization, sets, costuming, even a dragon puppet!  If you know me you know I love theatre and this was one of the most enjoyable and entertaining performances I've seen in a while.

My favourite was Lord Farquod, who played the entire show on his knees, with false legs in front, to make him look short.  He and the donkey, (above with Shrek) were hilarious!

There are just some combinations that click - like Fiona and Shrek, or Donkey and Dragon!  But I've discovered two colours that click, thanks to Dynamic Duos Challenge #83:

I haven't used Marina Mist in an age and I'm sure it was feeling abandoned and lonely, so imagine my delight when it was paired up with Crumb Cake in a subtle pair that looks soft and peaceful!  Really beautiful!  I used my newly discovered favourite stamp set, Warmth and Wonder, to create this card:

  • I started by sponging the bottom of the Whisper White with Marina Mist ink on a sponge dauber, using torn Post-It Notes to mask the Whisper White panel, creating snow banks.
  • I stamped the tree, deer and sentiment in Crumb Cake and added Marina Mist accents with the lights on the tree and on the snowflakes flying.  The images, except for Joy to the World, are from the Hostess stamp set, Warmth and Wonder.  If you would like this set, ask some friends to come and I can do a private class for you all!  As hostess, you would be able to order it.
  • The Crumb Cake background panel is embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
  • I used the Marina Mist Chevron ribbon with linen thread and a Frosted Finish Embellishment for an      accent.
Thanks for dropping in!  Have a great Monday!  Remember, only 18 days left to shop from the Holiday Catalogue!  Don't miss out on something you wanted because you waited too long!
