These colours work perfectly together! I seriously think that Pear Pizazz is nudging Old Olive out of my "favourite green" top spot, it's such a pretty & versatile colour.
Anyway, this week I have created a little magnetic calendar & a matching tri-fold card:-
Now, I have two big thank yous here. One to Christine for her sweet inspiration to make a calendar & one to Lynne for being such a wonderful friend & picking up & posting me some calendar pads. I had trudged to shop after shop without success, & then discovered you could get them in her state! Thanks so much lovely ladies!
So here is the card opened up:-
& here is the calendar:-
Call me crazy, but I actually find fussy cutting quite enjoyable (or maybe I just thrive on a good challenge) & these blossoms were VERY enjoyable/challenging to cut out! lol
I tried something different with these projects & that was watercolouring onto Very Vanilla cardstock instead of using watercolour paper. It certainly needed a different colouring technique but worked okay. To stamp my outline images, I first inked the stamp with Versamark & then, before stamping, inked it again with Early Espresso. I heat set the ink with clear embossing powder to get a raised outline.
The DT have some beautiful creations to show you, so pop along & have a peek:-
