Rust and teal anemones
A nice relaxin Sunday for me - course yesterday was pretty good to (we went out on our friends boat with them and it was a great relaxing day to be on the water, a nice breeze and some cloud cover kept it from getting too hot!!!)
I worked for awhile on the locker hook rug I am making for my daughter and then put together a few cards. I love to just sit and color and had 3/4 images ready to go so I just sat and made up 3 of them.
As you can tell - I really love the color combinations from the first release challenge this month over at Flourishes - rust and teal....
My DD and I are headed out Wednesday morning to drive her up to college (AKKKKK - OMG) so I won't get the chance to make any cards for the rest of the release week challenges (maybe I will get lucky and some of the 3 I have made up and waiting will match one of the other challenges...).
Check out the challenge over at Flourishes here - www.flourishes.org/blog/ Play along and you could win some bran new stamp sets from Flourishes.
I used ones of my newest sets - Anemones. I stamped the center bunch in black and then masked it off and stamped 2 more times - one to each side - in gray (so the middle bunch would stand out more)
I colored them with prismacolor pencils - the main bunch in rust tones and the side ones in a light teal blue.
I edged the main panel with teal ink, layered it to rust colored cardstock edged with rust colored ink, then to some ribbon - a silvery gray one and a teal one - and then to a very dark gray card base.
Lastly I added some teal drop accents with a Viva décor pen.
All for today - I need to get back to work on my DD's rug and then we are going out to eat at one of our favorite seafood restaurants - probably our last time out to eat as a family all together for awhile .
Have a great week !!
