Hello, and welcome back! I'm here today with another card for the Can You Case It blog, this time a color challenge. I'm so ready for spring, but there is no sign of it yet here in the Chicagoland area. It's still snowy and cold, but the forecast is for warmer weather soon, at least warm enough to melt the snow. I'll take what I can get!
How about these pretty, soft colors to cheer us all up? These should put us all in the mood for spring.
I used a few of the items from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog and paper from the Occasions Catalog. I stamped the lemon stamp twice, masking the first lemon before stamping the second. Then, I colored with my Blendabilities markers. For the area around the lemons, I colored the whole background with the Soft Sky Light Blendabilities marker. Then, I colored the area right around the lemons with the Soft Sky Medium Blendabilities and went back in with the light marker again to blend. I also added some highlights to the lemon by coloring a spot with the Color Lifter Blendabilities Pen.
For the three strips of paper, I used the green leafy pattern from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper, and sponged over two of the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper with So Saffron and Soft Sky inks (the stripes and dots). I finished the card off with two So Saffron buttons.
Well, that's all for today. I hope you'll stop by the Can You Case It blog, and share a spring creation with us this week using our color combo! Thanks for stopping by.
