So, first, a little background about the inspiration for today's cards. Even though we live in Florida now, I am a native of Michigan. Maybe it's the years of separation or the sweet memories of childhood but I find myself melancholy for the beauty of it's land. Certainly not the snow...but the beauty of pine forests, blue skies and the long light of summer. Gwen Frostic is a treasured Michigan artist renowned for woodcut images depicting the simple beauty of the flora and fauna of my home state. The Summer Silhouettes stamp set evokes her woodcut images of gentle leaves, delicate flowers and sweet sentiments....while this week's beautiful color combination at Pals Paper Arts really spoke to me...
The colors turned out so pretty that I was inspired to make a few more cards with the same stamp set and layout.
I found that Wild Wasabi works equally as well with Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango...as well as Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo:
Clean and simple with just a little paper piercing for texture. A hint of rhinestone sparkle, polka dots for fun and I've got a trio of cards for my customers that really speak of home. I hope you enjoyed today's cards as much as I enjoyed creating them.
