Today's sketch on Stars and Stamps - Operation Write Home's Card Blog - was like giving birth - this is the second try - I think what the problem is the thinking of you stamp - I think - or it could just me having a problem - maybe I need some more coffee. I love the colors in this paper pad - it is by Prima - orange and pink are happy colors. I used black to offset the colors. The middle black strip under the flower was added afterwards - I needed something there to do something - like I said it was like giving birth.
I started with this card base first but then the stamp and background paper were fighting. I don't know who won - I separated them. But I did get another happy card out of it. I think they would work for Mother's Day but also any day when you are thinking of someone special.
Here is your Hint for the Day - when stamping sentiments or images on a light color bse I find they are too stark - pop when you don't want them to pop - kinda like a sore thumb - I have found that chalking them adds some color to them - they no longer are sore - they blend with the card - on this card I chalked both sentiments with an orange chalk.
Everyone enjoy your Sunday.
