Life

Wanted to try the challenge at Our Creative Corner this week.  The card must be a square (I often make square cards--#1 OK) AND it must use analogous colors (I don't even own a color wheel--#2 could be a problem!)  Fortunately, the color wheel is pictured on the post & I chose to work with pink, red & purple using Distress Inks worn lipstick, barn door & seedless preserves.  After inking my white cardstock I stamped PTI Background Basics: Medallions using Versafine Onyx Black.  The sentiment is from PTI The Sweet Life & is embossed on vellum die cut with Spellbinders Labels 18.  In my line of work I'm constantly reminded of the truth of this quote.  My embellishment consists of a tulle & a lace flower I made (Sue's inspiration) with one blossom die cut with MFT Prima Donna Petals.  The center is a KaiserCraft Sparklet & the stick pin is from Petaloo (darkened with a black COPIC).  I'm also entering this card in PTI MIM Inked Backgrounds.  I think I'll play some more with the color wheel as I do like the effect of these colors together.  Thanks so much for checking my blog.  I'm very interested in hearing your thoughts.

  1. Hello Greta
    I am thrilled you have joined in this week at Our Creative Corner. What an absolute feast for the eyes this card is, choosing this palette; Red being the hottest of colours and strong, it is perfectly offset by the purity of your White Flower, and layering the organza behind adds texture and movement, I love this to bits.
