Color to Warm the Heart – MOJO202

Don’t you just love these luscious colors?  I have had that piece of paper with the flowers for months and loved it so much that I simply couldn’t cover it up.  So, I left my circle element open for all the world to see the Sweet Peas. You may notice that I have finally learned how to put a watermark on my cards just like the big girls do!!!  And, I have learned how to drop in a background.  All thanks to my extraordinarily talented, in-house computer design expert…  my husband.

I had several scraps of paper from a class I took at Archiver’s that I used to make my little hanging flags and to fill in the triangles as well as adding the black layers.  Also used were Core’dinations paper and the Susan Winget K&Co mat stack.  Little pieces of my other (since I only have two so far) Cheery Lynn A2Frame die made my triangle edges.  I used a Studio G stamp from the dollar bin at Micheal’s with Momento Black Tuxedo Ink and Ranger’s Glossy Accents.  Bling was also from Michael’s dollar bin and sparkle from Ranger’s Stickles in Cotton Candy, Fruit Punch and Lime Green.

I hope you like this as much as I do.  It gives me a warm fuzzy when I see those Sweet Peas.  I love to hear from you…  give me a comment today!

    How DO you make a watermark? So clever! I can almost smell the sweet peas.

    I do love these colors. What kind of a stockpile of cards must you have to be prepared to handle the ‘needs’ of those who order? This is awesome. When do you have time to live a life other than cardmaking?

    • Is there something besides card making? Oh, yes, there is paper crafting!!! Haven’t done much of that lately. Busy learning new techniques and coveting other peoples tools. Learning to take good photos and how to use photoshop, too.

      The hardest part of this whole thing is learning to use photoshop. I’ve been at it for about two hours tonight. I was so happy to see a comment from you (thought you were still incognito) that it was the perfect excuse to stop.

      My high school buddy, Joyce, stopped on her way north from Florida and spent the night. Guess what we did? Made a card!
