So let's kick start this Monday with challenge #8!
My card is a lil flower pot card made from instructions found here. I'm making these cute cards for this month's workshops as well. I decided to use the Rock 'n' Roll technique for the flowers just to give them an extra little something. The technique, if you don't already know, is super easy. Basically ink up your stamp in a light color and then roll just the edges of the stamp in a darker color (while trying to not hit the middle). You get a really cool effect. Now a lesson I've learnt while doing this technique is that you always want to think, "What if I mixed these two colors in a pot together, would it look like poop?" And I'm being totally serious here because I found the Melon Mambo and Bashful blue turned out great because it almost turned into a light purple. The Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue was starting to look a bit like breastfeeding poop because what happens when you mix blue and orange in a pot? It looks like poop! The flower on top looks quite red and that's from mixing Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo. Anywhooo enough chit chat. I'll be sure to keep you on posted on the happenings over at the PPC-CC blog. If you haven't discovered it yet, pop on over and take a peek! There's a lotta fun waiting to happen!
