Happy Thoughts

Challenge #369 – Colors

I liked the sketch at Sunday Stamps and then saw the colours at CAS and decided I could combine the two challenges. Using a set by Lisa Hetrick I stamped the polka dots on a strip of paper in a neutral ink and added it to card front. I cut a tiny strip of gold to go down the side of this piece and using same gold die cut a circle for behind the focal piece. Stamped the images using distress oxides closest matches to above image and did a bit of masking to add leaves etc. Added the two circles together and put on card front. Taking a scrap piece of paper that was a similar lavender, but looks blue in photo, I stamped the sentiment using 3 stamps from a tiny SSS set. Added a bit of bling as well.

    1. I was on a roll so went with it. Made up for no creativity for most of the week so far. Glad you like it.


    1. Thanks so much Judy – matching colours is a challenge but now I have some samples it got easier.

    1. Thanks very much. I enjoy playing with the challenges and appreciate that you put them together each week.


  2. So pretty, Johanna. The gold strip and circle layer really work well with the images. Those side dots are very cool. That you were able to make it work for these two challenges is a definite plus.

  3. Thanks Gayle – I had the little gold strip on my desk and couldn’t bring myself to throw it away. When I added the dots they looked kind of lost until I put the gold line beside them. Sometimes a throw away piece can be useful.
