I am so excited to be able to share with you a new monthly hop! If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format. We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus. The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy! Over the last year “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors. Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month. This month we have a color challenge that the whole team will be using as inspiration. Great colors, don’t you think?
I know, I was thinking it too. My card looks an awful lot like the inspiration photo doesn’t it?! Well, we had the colors before the photo and I had sketched out my idea when Connie sent us this graphic. Hmmm…. Well, it wasn’t a reason NOT to make the card so I went with it. I used these pretty images from the hostess set, Best Thoughts. I colored the imaged using my Aquapainter and Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush and Basic Black inks. I had planned to use the sentiment from the set but then it wasn’t the right fit. Instead I pulled out this one from the Watercolor Wonder kit and it works perfectly. They are hard to see in the picture but I added on some clear sequins from the Metallic Sequins pack. Love how they look in person. This card is for my mom (shhhh, don’t tell her). Hopefully she’ll see it in person before in my post. Love you mom!
I know my post is a little short tonight. Just got home last night and had to get this one done quickly. The good news is that I have another with this color palette to share with you later.
I’m so glad you stopped in to visit today. I hope you have a great time seeing all the beautiful things on our hop.
The amazing Mercedes Weber is up next! Wait until you see the fancy project she created!
