I loved the color scheme and I thought it might make for an interesting card, especially since the background of her photo said "Fine Linen" to me and that isn't a color I use much. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to challenge myself a bit and pull that color out of hiding. I also thought that the palette was super versatile and would lend itself to several different design styles. So a challenge and the potential for versatility...sounds like a winner to me!
I stamped my sentiment onto Rustic White stock using Dark Chocolate and Ripe Avocado inks and then added a grounding shadow in Aqua Mist to give my mugs an anchor. I wanted to reinforce the affection theme, so I stamped the heart-shaped steam image onto my focal panel using more Aqua Mist. That panel was then matted with a bit of Dark Chocolate cardstock and mounted to my card front with a bit of foam tape. I adhered my mugs (tall one flat, short one with foam tape) and the card was complete. The great thing about this card is that you could easily switch around the colors to give you a totally different feel. I went with a little more subdued take, but I can absolutely see making another card in the future with a brighter and bolder direction.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you'll try out the color scheme for yourself and share your project over on the Papertrey Ink Challenge forum!
