Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday Night. Tomorrow is mid-week. Hump Day. I can't wait for the weekend. tonight's card was another one that took me waaaaay outside of my comfort zone. I don't know what it is about bold colors, but I really haven't used a lot of them. However, the inspiration this week DEMANDED the use of bright colors. It also caused me to break out a set I have only every used once, and use a stamp within that set that I have never used!
Splitcoast does an inspiration challenge. I don't do them very often. However, I saw this challenge a couple of weeks ago and it made me nostalgic for days that were just a little more simple. I love technology - hey that's what I do for a real job... BUT... I really do love the simple things in life.
The inspiration was Crate Labels. Anyone remember these? Here's a link to the challenge. Here's a link to the label that really caught my eye. This was a great one to use to pay homage to some of the retiring colors, and ones that I very rarely use. Because of the country feel, and because I didn't actually have a stamp with lemons on it, I decided to use an image from the Country Morning hostess set for that down home country feel :-)
I hope you recognize the colors and the feel of the label. I decided to make the green a little less prominent. I had great fun water coloring this image.
Now... here's a twist to the comment game. If you correctly recognize all of the colors used in the card and leave a comment on my blog telling me what they are - I will put you in the draw for a spot prize. So.... get your looking glasses out - leave a comment with the colors used. If you are correct, your name will be put into the draw tomorrow for the spot prize. If you are wrong... no worries... you will still be entered into the overall comment blog draw for April 30!
Thank you to all of you who have commented. It really inspires me to do my blog updates everyday. These last few weeks have been exceptionally busy - 14 hour days on average at my desk and some nights I have been waaaay too tired to do my blog. But reading your comments in the morning, really does encourage me to do this! So, thank you.
Also... I'd like you to take a trip along to Cheryl's blog. Cheryl was inspired by one of my Awash with Flowers cards and wrote to let me know that she had used my card as an inspiration for a fabulous swap card that she had done. You can see Cheryl's incredible take on my card. It's always wonderful when you have inspired someone. So, please pop along to Chery's blog and leave her a little love:-)
Trish, I hope the visit with the Oncologist went well today. Stay strong, my friend!
I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday. One filled with love, laughter and lots of joy.
