SC211 - Bella's Blue Blossom


I finally got a chance to break out this stamp set again :D I purchased it back in November to make a bunch of card gift sets for some family members for Christmas... but I only got one set done! Now keep in mind I had all my DT assignments and the never ending holiday cards to get made, oh and not to forget all the Christmas shopping that needed to be done. Since those holiday cards were never ending to begin with, I decided not to start any at all *grin* So, all in all...I don't really have any excuse as to why it never got inked again!




I started making this card late last night for today's SCS Sketch Challenge (SC211) I pulled out my much coveted Urban Prairie Basic Grey DP to put it to good use. I have to say that blues and greens together are my most favourite colour combo. What could be better than the calmness of the colour of water and the softness of the shades of grass?...And I had buttons to match so that really settled my decision on this combo! lol



I love this sketch and had ideas running through my head the minute I saw it. I chose to pull out the Bella Blossoms set for this card because it is so refreshing to use a stamp that doesn't actually require colouring! - With this is the bonus that it literally takes me 1/4 of the time to make the card! I have been so busy colouring up a storm for my Clear Dollar Stamps samples and I really needed the break :D I can't wait to show you what I have been working on, but you all will just have to wait until the end of the month! *wicked grin*

Gorgeous!! So... that whole 'no coloring' thing... what's that like?? I can't remember the last time I did that!! Hahaha I usually shy away from blues and greens but I actually tried it on a card this week and it didn't turn out to badly! They might just be my new favorites!! :)
