This week over at Color My Heart, we are working with some lovely pastels: Blush, Cotton Candy, Crème Brulee, Sweet Leaf and Pear.
I mixed two stamp sets for this: Doodle Signs (Hostess Rewards) and Good Times (Cricut Artbooking Collection). The sentiment was created using "love" from Doodle Signs and "note" from Good Times. It's amazing the new phrases you can come up with by mixing words from different sets.
The torn note piece was cut with Artbooking and stamped with the coordinating paper lines from Good Times in Pear. I used a large round sponge to add Crème Brulee over the top and did an extra bit of sponging along the edges. The hearts were stamped and rolled to create the shading. For the pink and green hearts, I did that by stamping in the lighter of the two challenge colors, Blush or Sweet Leaf, then rolling the edge of the stamp in Cotton Candy or Pear. For the Crème Brulee hearts, I achieved the same effect by inking the heart, stamping off, and then rolling the edge in Crème Brulee again for a combined second generation and first generation image.
If you decide to join the fun over at Color My Heart, I challenge you to use two or three different stamp sets to come up with a fun, new phrase. Be sure to tell us which sets you used to make it.
Until next time,
