What day is it today???

Boy, having the whole summer off has really messed with my time clock! I can't seem to remember what the date is or what day it is from day to day. I guess you can say it could be a "perk" but for me, it's driving me NUTS!!! I wanna know what day it is without having to look at a calendar! Oh, well, in a few weeks (yeah I know it's about two or three weeks to go) I be headed back to school... Then the rat race will begin.

This morning I set out to make another project for the WoodwareUSA color challenge. I worked for hours with something else (can't tell you what it is yet cause it's a work in progress), but got tired of it and started working with a new set I got the other day. I purchased Leafy Swirls and Circular Greetings. Initially, I stamped the long leafy swirl on kraft cardstock then colored it and then I tried my hand at watercoloring with my distress inks...Bad idea...So...I had to cut out the swirl. I then distressed some white cardstock with Vintage Photo ink. I had the teal circle scrap on my worktable so I thought it would work well with the color scheme. I stamped it with the circular sentiment and added the flower with bling too. After moving, sliding and fiddling a bit, I finally found a pleasing design and started gluing things down. There was a lot of negative space to the left of the circle so I stamped some more swirls and added them to the edge.

I picked up the little butterfly (colored with my copics) from the GASC convention and I can't remember which booth it came from. I also colored the bling with my Copics. I think I'm going to splatter a bit of red or teal acrylic paint on the background paper to give it more pop...What do you think?

Hope you're taking part in the color challenge at the WoodwareUSA blog. Come back tomorrow for another creation inspired by the yummy color combination of red, teal and kraft.



  1. Hello Kerry, I love what the color combo inspired you! Beautiful card, rich and delicate. To answer your question, I would not put any red or teal. The kraft color is rich and warm by itself, I'm afraid the red would be too "hot" and would take off the richness and delicate shading of the kraft, and the teal hem...... but it's your choice.I find it beautiful like this.

  2. Lovely card ! I like it very much, sereen, but very effective ! Great job !
