Happy Tuesday, peeps!! Hope your week is going well so far! I was thrilled to see this week's Stamp Ink Paper challenge for two reasons! One, I love the colors and two, I just had some painting done in Cassidy's room and I needed to send the painter a little thank-you note for the awesome job she did! So here we go:
So I went pretty literal with the challenge photo, and made a note card with the little paint images from Love You Sew, a retired hostess set:
I wish I had used Rich Razzleberry instead of Elegant Eggplant for the purple, but I still love these colors together! I used Sahara Sand, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Soft Sky, Smoky Slate and Elegant Eggplant for my paint lines, then stamped the paint brush on top in the same colors and again in Basic Black ink and cut them out and attached them at the top. It's hard to see, but the paintbrushes are extending above the top of the note card, so I trimmed the card down so it will still fit in a notecard-sized envelope.
I added another swish of paint and a "thanks" sentiment from Perfectly Wrapped!
I hope you'll play along with our colors this week....they're a beautiful inspiration for some spring stamping! Be sure to check out the SIP blog to see all the creations!
And although it's hard to tell, you can see the new paint in Cassidy's room as she reads her favorite book, "Arthur's Underwear"....although it's not purple like the card (that's what she WANTED!!), I opted for a more soothing shade of sage! No more stars and sailboats!
And she even has her dolls reading lately:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
