Wow – these colors really kicked my tooshie! I tried a few cards, and they weren’t right. I had a lot of ideas, but couldn’t get them to materialize. We’ve also had a busy week, searching for a vehicle to replace our breaking-down van, and trying to cram in a bunch of lessons with the children before their cousin will visit next week for an 11-day sleepover (and, consequently, an 11-day break from lessons). So I guess my brain has also been elsewhere this week, which isn’t always great for the creative vein.
Anyway, I think we finally found the right vehicle today, so I can stop worrying about that. And we’re in good shape now on lessons after lots of dedication this week, so I relaxed a little to create 2 cards after we finished car shopping earlier today.
I really did have a hard time with the colors. Although, after the new Clean & Simple layout (#210) was released Friday, I grabbed some solid cardstocks and made a very, very simple and rather masculine color-blocked card with the ColourQ #156 combo.
It was a bit tricky, though, getting those little letter dies lined up fairly straight for the negative die-cut effect.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
