ColourQ #134, JAI #115 and Less is More






My goodness these colours were a challenge to put together but a very interesting combination.  As Purely Pomegranate was still on my desk and I don't have Bravo Burgundy, it was my substitute and I think it worked well.  I stamped the JustRite border twice to get a double line at the top of the pool party panel.  



What you need
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics Burgundy;  SU white, Pool Party, Calypso Coral
Stamps - TE Make it Amazing;  Just Rite Lace Borders II
Ink - SU Purely Pomegranate, Pool Party, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie
Butterfly Punches - MS
Gems - Kaisercraft
*******



I recently received my latest Simon Says Stamp order and the stamp I have used was part of it.  As soon as I saw this stamp this was the idea I had for it (hopefully there will be others).  There are black gems on the ampersand bit it is a little difficult to see them

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white
Stamps - Hero Arts Ampersand;  WMS Join Us
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black;  SU Real Red
Gems - Kaisercraft

  1. I agree, a difficult color combo but you certainly pulled it off. Loving the lacy border (don't forget to enter JustRite's challenges now that you have some stamps!) and the trail of graduated butterflies. The second card is a classic of CAS--love it!
