A few months back, I got an email asking if I'd be willing to be a guest designer for Color My Heart. It took me less than a second to say yes. I love the ladies at CMH. They were the first ones to allow me to be part of design team, and I owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
This week, the color scheme is Lagoon, Sorbet, and Smoothie. The retro colors pair perfectly with the retro feel of this month's special promotional set, "Share the Love." I have three cards to show you. This first one sticks to the CMH color scheme.
These next two add a little Slate and Whisper in the mix:
I did quite a bit of fussy cutting to get the multicolored telephone, camera, and typewriter, but I also did a lot of fussy cutting of the stamps themselves. "Share the Love" comes as a set of thirteen stamps. When I was done cutting, I had seventeen. I made separate images for everything that was inside a circle, whether it was a word bubble or camera flash.
Once I had the cards done, they seemed too flat. Liquid glass to the rescue!! It takes a steady hand and the patience of Job to let everything dry without touching, but I love how all my focal images shine.
A huge thanks to Color My Heart for letting me play along. An even bigger thanks for letting me choose this week so I could promote my latest release, The Cowboy's Bride Collection. Last I looked, Amazon was selling it for almost half price. And, if you like a party, come join all nine authors on Facebook for our Release Party where we'll be giving away a Kindle Fire and several gift cards. Hope to see y'all there!
Until next time,
