The wonderful team at Diva Coffee Break Designs chose me as their Featured Artist for this challenge. Thank you so much for the complement!!
Happy weekend, everyone! I hope you are enjoying spring as much as I am. My boys are playing soccer and today is going to be a perfect day to be a soccer mom. Before I’m off to the excitement, I wanted to post this card I made yesterday. Margaret Moody over at Pals Paper Arts has come up with yet another fantastic layout.
I knew this would be the perfect place to pull out my new Presto Patterns DSP and give you a sneak peek. This paper is white with embossed patterns. You get to customize it for whatever colors you want!! How much do you love that??!! The team over at Diva Coffee Break Designs came up with a beautiful color challenge this week and I wanted to give it a try.
Cameo Coral is one of the retiring colors in this year’s Color Renovation so I’m working on using up my extra paper. I started with a base of the Presto Pattern DSP and sponged it with So Saffron. I then sponged the edges in Chocolate Chip and, as a final touch, sprayed on a bit of the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz (also new to the Summer Mini). I thought that Rock-n-Roll would be the perfect technique to use on the Vintage Vogue flowers. First I inked up the flower in So Saffron, then I did a “heavy” roll in the Cameo Coral and finally a “light” roll in the Chocolate Chip. I stamped all three flowers and Spritzed them, too. I cut them out and stitched on the buttons from Button Latte. After a bit more sponging on the flowers and the Cameo Coral squares, I put on the Chocolate Satin Ribbon. These colors are really pretty together and I love the effect of the Spritz.
I can’t wait to hear what you think about the new products! Hope you have a great weekend!
