Well what a soppy, soggy weekend it's been here! I hope the sun visited some of you out there! Oh well, the rain gives me a good excuse to immerse myself in my crafting corner and that's exactly what I've been doing today.
Today I decided to play with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8. As I love Papertrey Ink's Raspberry Fizz, playing along with these challenges opens up the idea of new colour combos that I'd never have thought of myself!
So this week's colours are:
I decided once again to play with my new 'Remember' Papertrey Ink set (not new to PTI of course, but still new to me ;o) These colours had me drooling as they constantly reminded me of neapolitan ice-cream! I haven't had any of that stuff for years (more of a Ben and Jerry's and Hagen Daaz gal myself!).
Rain really did dampen my mojo today so I combined the colour challenge with Jen del Muro's Saturday sketch.
Here's what I came up with:(Apologies for the poor photography; my photography skill combined with poor weather equals a less-than-super pic!)I hope you like it! I created the Raspberry Fizz background with the aid of the flourish stamp from the set. It almost tessellated, making it easy to create my own kinda PTI designer paper! without the pattern, the raspberry fizz kinda took over the card and was way too bold for my liking!
I also took the time to decorate inside my card too:
(All Papertrey Ink Unless Stated!)
Stamps: Remember Stamp Set
Ink: Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Raspberry Fizz
Card: Vintage Cream, Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate, Kraft (from The Paper Cellar)
Accessories: Cream Vintage Button, Dark Chocolate Topnotch Twill Ribbon, Kraft Coloured Twine (IKEA), Cuttlebug, Nestabilities,
I'm really loving PTI's Vintage Cream card and ink - so elegant and pretty! Sounds kinda weird as to most people it's just cream card but to me it gorgeous! LOL! I nearly had a heart attack earlier today when I caught my bf rooting through my stuff to find some 'white scrap paper' to write a list on and he came out with a sheet of this little piece of heaven! "It's just card, Aimes!" he exclaimed, "Just, Just, JUST!?!?! It's not just card - it's PTI's Paper Basics 110lb Vintage Cream Cardstock!! That stuff is almost sacred" LOL! No doubt now he's found confirmation that I am a completely crazed papercrafting nutcase!
Right then, off to find some neapolitan ice-cream....
Catch ya later!
