Hi crafty friends! The mojo is returning... the stamping goddesses are smiling... the color story this week in the Cafe is perfectly rich and wonderful. We hope you'll join us this week for these regal colors...
Burgundy, Gold, & Plum
I created my own background paper by stamping vintage keys from Papertrey Ink's Lock & Key stamp set then filled in with a few red hearts. I used Text Style over the print and heavily distressed the edges with Color Box Creamy Brown ink. (my new favorite for "strong-arming" my projects ;)
The overall layout was pulled from this week's WaltzingMouse sketch. I have been sorely neglecting my WMS stamps and was so happy to get them inky this week! I used Dainty Doilies, Cameo Creations, and Say it Loud for the sentiments. A bit of trim and ribbon added some nice interest and textural detail. Perfect for Valentine's Day... not for the hubs of course, but for someone dear.
...such a great place to get your crafty fix. They have a wide range of products, and if you play along with us this week, you could be the lucky winner that gets to shop for free! I can't wait to see your creations!
