It’s already time for another Colour Me post! Before I get started, I just want to mention that there is a design team call on over at the Colour Me challenge. Take a leap and apply! Colour Me was my first ever DT and I am so happy that I applied and have been able to join such a positive and talented group of designers.
Ok, so moving on, this week the challenge is to create a project using two shades of purple, a teal, and orange.
I was very tempted to create a Halloween card with this colour combo, but I was inspired by my Sending Happy Thoughts stamp set and had the idea for little vellum envelopes stuffed with tiny hearts so I ran with that idea. Make sure to watch the video to see how I created this card–
Sometimes vellum can be kind of fussy to work with and figuring out how to adhere it without the adhesive showing is usually the biggest challenge. But here’s the thing…if you are adhering the vellum to a white base, the adhesive barely shows. I did a quick test using my three favourite liquid glues, and all three were barely noticeable once they dried. You can see my mini test in the video tutorial.
Before I sign off, I do want to mention that this is my second attempt at my card this week. I wasn’t terribly happy with my original creation, so I hit the drawing board and gave it another shot. This is one the things I love so much about the creative process of card making. We can use, and re-use our supplies (especially stamps) to create any number of different cards. I’m glad I tried again because I’m much happier with this card.
