It's Okay To Be Different!

Monday, January 19, 2015

I've been enjoying my long weekend so much I forgot to post a card that I made yesterday!  I used the colors at Cupcake Inspirations and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to make a simple one layer card.

I was a little intimidated by the sketch but I had been thinking about it for a few days when I got the idea to create Xs using a paintbrush stamp.  So I created the Xs in pink and gray then layered the sentiment over one of the pink Xs in some brown.

I recently bought some pigment inks from Avery Elle and I used them exclusively on this card.   I really like how they give a good, crisp image.  The gray that I used is called Fog and it's sort of a taupe-gray but a very pretty color.

Well that's it for me.  I'm off to make the Olive Garden minestrone soup.  Yum!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  New Day (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  Ultra Smooth Pure White (Avery Elle)

One of my favorite colour combos and a great take on the sketch. thanks for the comment today - Pats played a great game yesterday - Brady is a great QB. It will be Eastern Seaboard vs Western Seaboard in the Bowl. May the best team win.

You are too clever! Using the paint stroke stamp for the sketch is genius! And the colors look so good together.

SUPER card! Love the pinks and grays together; they're really lovely. I like AE inks too, and Mama Elephant. Both are wonderful! Your card is a sure winner in my book!! Have a great week. Bev
