I am so excited to share this post with you! I have to be honest... I threw my name into the hat for the Color Combos Galore Design Team Call, fully expecting to never hear anything. I just didn't think I'd get a second glance! Imagine my surprise - and glee! - when Janet emailed me and welcomed me to the 2013 Design Team!
This week's beautiful colour story is *so* me... I am a real colour lover, but when I see neutrals and vintage together, it makes my heart sing. It was tough to choose which Focus On to go with, because I wanted to go with all of them. So, I chose one, and grabbed elements from the others, and here is where I ended up:
I chose to go with photo number 3, and Focus On: Inked Edges... though I used Antique Linen Distress Ink, so it's a very subtle effect. I did, however, add some Walnut Stain Ink to highlight some of the crumples of my panel as well.
I also chose to use the floral elements in photo number 2 to accent my sentiment panel, only I used stamps instead of actual blooms. And because the beautiful vintage post box reminded me that I hadn't used my Postmarks set (PTI) in awhile, I knew I wanted to incorporate that theme as well. So I decided to create a neutral postcard as my base.
I promise those edges are inked - twice, in fact!
And because one of the colours in our story was silver, how could I resist this beautiful glittered edge?
Now, I encourage you to go and see what the rest of the team has created - there will be layouts and cards alike to feast your eyes on, and I promise you won't be disappointed. These ladies are so talented!
Thanks so much for popping in, and I'll try to have a few more posts in the coming days, if we all start to feel better! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
