Wooops! I totally forgot… I was supposed to share my adorable project that I created for this months Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge. With all the excitement of FREE SHIPPING and new WEEKLY DEALS the reveal of my project completely slipped my mind. I am feverishly trying to prepare for a craft fair that I am taking part in this weekend as well- so. much. work.
Let me take just a moment to share this adorable little project with you. I made several of this cute little journal for my fair but this one features the colors for the challenge: Mossy Meadow, Calypso Coral, and Bermuda Bay- what a fun color combo! You can’t see the cute colored rhinestones that I have on here due to the dark base of the journal, but believe me they are CUTE!
I made this little journal with a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of BASIC BLACK CARD STOCK, stacked some paper on one side (cut to 8-1/8″ x 5-1/8″) then stapled down the middle. Then I took my BONE FOLDER and folded it in half and pressed the life out of it until it stayed shut. When I first saw this color combo I was a little stumped… but then I grabbed my most FAVE stamp (at the moment) and it was all so clear. You should create something using these colors and submit your project for the challenge, winners are selected and it’s SO fun to play along!
I stamped it in STAZON INK and then did some coloring and shading with my STAMPIN’ WRITE MARKERS. I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana as the flower base then came back with Calypso Coral and Bermuda to add the deeper shading. You can use the BLENDER PEN to help the image look a little more cohesive, the blender pen won’t blend the 2 colors completely BUT it does remove any streak marks or color lines so it gives it a more smooth appearance. Then of course I covered the tulips with DAZZLING DETAILS to make it glimmer and it looks like dew
These are great little journals for anything but I personally use mine for all of my user names and passwords to the GAZZLION different sites I need them for. Who can remember all that? Not me… so I keep one of these bad boys next to my desk, then when my husband has to WHACK my computer I can gain access to my favorite places again. Don’t ask me how often that happens…
