Today's card made me very happy that I bought Soft Pool ink from Hero Arts.
*happy little sigh*
The dandelion stamps in Gina K's Sun-Kissed Autumn are lovely, but they don't have much visual weight when stamped in soft colors...they actually look a little wimpy. It dawned on me that stamping the dandelion in black over a large circle of a soft color might work better...and it does!
The circle of soft pool is echoed in the border of pool polka dots (not too small, not too big, just right!) and by the soft aqua pearl accent. The black sentiment has an exclamation point, the shape of which mimics the points of the dandelion, further enhancing unity.
That particular shade of blue just makes me so happy!
Now for the news...I am the Featured Friday Card Maker at Operation Write Home this week! I'm so honored that Sandy asked me, and I hope you'll click on over and take a look.
Have a great weekend!
