Anyway, I was able to get my card done for the Clear Dollar Weekend Color challenge and it was a real challenge at first. Monique picked this picture and these 4 colors. I seem to do ok with 3, but add one more and its head scratching time.
- PINK PIROUETTE
- CAMEO CORAL
- KIWI KISS
- SAHARA SAND
- and white as neutral
Here is my card:
As I told you earlier, I am on crochet flower over load. It is completely addicting crocheting these little guys. Since I'm not a SU! gal, I substituted some colors form Close to my Heart as well as Papertrey ink. My version of Cameo Coral was a bit bright, so I decided to mute by painting my cardstock after I embossed it. Plus, I just love how the painted look seems to go with my mixer image which is from Ageless Antiques. I love that set and of course the sentiment is perfect too.
I used some crochet lace that I just purchased from Walmart last weekend and that seemed to work with my tan color too. I also used my new Blossom Nestabilities that Lori has available at Clear Dollar. I have actually used that die set a lot recently. I did curve my sentiment just a tad so it would fit onto my smaller blossom cut. I used one more stamp called Beaded Chain for my background on my pink cardstock. The green is the one color from Papertrey ink.
It took a bit to bring it all together, but I'm quite pleased with the results. Oh, I want you to know that I took 4 tries to get the perfect (at its not perfect either) stamped image of my sentiment. Yikes... I wasted a lot of cardstock cutting out that die too.
If you have time make sure to go to Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp and enter for a chance to win a yard of all the ribbon in stock - Wow! who wouldn't love that. Plus, I have another card on there with more crocheted flowers :) And finally, our design team leader Laurie Wilson has some glittery blog candy available too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day and weekend.
