Smile & Hello.

Hi everyone, welcome back! It seems like lately I’ve been making two cards unintentionally. What I end up doing is stamping and cutting images in duplicate just in case I mess up one of them; but I’ve been lucky and I’ve been able to use the other set of images in a separate but similar card! This Altenew Garden Treasure stamp set is what I used today, and lining up the images was super easy as always…so no boo-boos here.

So here are my two cards today. I was experimenting with a color combination I saw on Pinterest–another social media platform I seem to often forget for image sharing. I guess my boards are full of food right now…

Anyway I found this combination just by searching for color palettes. And sorry if I’m the last one to know about this but seriously there are SO MANY of these example images. I was super excited to know that I had the materials to make many of these example palettes.

The colors used in this particular palette were a teal blue, golden rod, eucalyptus, light warm grey, and medium warm grey. I played with two different layouts for the flowers. In order to get splatters that match the color of inks I was using for the smaller floral elements, I dabbed the ink pad onto a clear acrylic block and added a few drops of water with a water color brush. I used the subsequent blend as my medium for adding splatters.

I found that the arrangement looked a little flat on my card for some reason. So I spotlight ink blended in the same ink I used for the splatters. What that means is I started from the center of the arrangement and diffused the color outward. This helped the arrangement stand up against the stark white background.

That completes my cards! I always appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day. Let me know what you think in the comments!
