Hello Crafty Friends! I love the monthly Lindy’s Color Challenges and today I finished my page for the March entry. Here are the gorgeous colors this month:
For Lindy’s challenge, I used Lindy’s Starburst Spray in “Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and Lindy’s Flat Fabio in Plumeria Pink and Luscious Lime. After spraying and using a straw to move the colors, I stamped the Dina Wakely clear stamp (I got half price at Michael’s last week) in Archival Ink. I then went a letter crazy and doodled. I am certainly not a natural doodler but I’m taking a class with JoAnne Sharpe that has really inspired me called “Artfully Inspired Life 2016.”
Happy Monday! That means it’s time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge and this week we are celebrating “Just Purple.”
I’d also like to wish my oldest, Dan, a very Happy Birthday today!!
Please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 card without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, March 27th and our design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.
For my card I used the My Favorite Things “Beautiful Blooms” card kit from January. I began with FW Pearlescent Fluid Acrylic Paint for my background. It’s got a gorgeous shimmer. I then used the stamp, dies and ink from the kit and finished off with an Altenew sentiment from Oriental Orchid. The card base is cut out with a WPlus9 Die.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you enter for your “Just Purple” cards this week!
