Stamp-a-Faire 2016: Master Color Recipes
The first challenge for Stamp-a-Faire today, Master Color Recipes, is to use a color combo taken from one of nine paintings. I chose the one inspired by Leonid Afremov's Date in the Park. It wasn't my original choice looking at the printout, because I was initially drawn to a softer color combo, but when I saw the bold colors of his painting on my computer screen this morning, I just had to use that one instead. It's really stunning!
I kept my card very simple. (although I was wishing I had the Mighty Oak stamp set and dies for this) I cut a Double-Ended Banner by Papertrey Ink out of each color and glued them to a white card base. It echoes the strong vertical lines in the painting. I cut my word out of True Black cardstock twice using the Noted die, layering them together for dimension, and adhering it over the strips. Then I stamped the sentiment from Heart-2-Heart #4 on a white Building Blocks die cut underneath. The black pops just like the trees in the painting and I really like the look. It makes for a fun card!
