Welcome to another CSS Gina K blog hop!!!! This time we are using this photo as inspiration for our projects.
I really liked the color combinations in this one - the light blue with the darker brown and the touches of terracotta and brighter dark blue.
If you are following along the hop then you came to me from the sweetly talented Sharri - www.istamp4u.blogspot.com/2011/09/inspiration-hop.html
My first card uses the brighter dark blue with the brown and the phrase in the terra cotta with a touch of the light blue with the ribbon.
The phrase and the orchids are from Aseleas 'Botanical Dreams' and the frame is from Nina's 'Lovely Labels 2.
I used a texture folder on the base cardstock and a viva decor pen for the pearl beads.
The orchids are colored with my copics.
My second card uses more of the terracotta color with the light blue - same stamps and ect - only I tried to use a light blue liquid pearls but they seem to have faded into the strong background - might have to go over them with a darker blue liquid pearls (these were from tulip - beads in a bottle which are a bit less expensive but work the same - the only real difference I see is that the viva does have a smaller tip which makes doing tiny beads much easier.)
All for me tonight - I now show you the way to another wonderfully talented lady - Vicki - www.allidoisstamp.blogspot.com/2011/09/gkd-post.html
Have a great weekend - I will be spending all day tomorrow in class and then start my 3 day stretch sunday night....
