Renee made me do it! I was catching up on posts in Google Reader when I came across Renee’s use of the Simply Said set and the Fusion Flowers. I had a WOW moment, and as soon as Roger got home from work I had to test this out. I have to say that Simply Said was a set I “had to have” and it rarely sees ink. Good thing I got it with Consistency Counts huh? Free stamps with no ink are much better than paid for stamps with no ink in my book. If the layout looks familiar it’s because I used it in my last post, and is the Sketch Challenge for this week on SCS. I think this one is going to be filed in my sketch book for future use. It’s fun and easy and has stunning outcomes.
Yesterday I was feeling a bit unwanted. There is an article in the local paper about the desperate need for people to donate blood. I was once denied, solely on the fact that I lived in Sheffield England for 6 months in 1995. Apparently, they think I may be carrying Mad Cow disease and they told me they’d call me back if and when they lifted this rule. I admit, I may act a bit mad, but I think my blood is safe. They did let me continue to donate blood for 3 years after I returned home before they denied me.
I appear to be getting way off track. I chose colors for this card right from the Bali Breeze Designer Series paper. I used Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. I stamped the flowers from Simply Said in Basic Gray ink, used Old Olive for the stems and Rose Red for the flowers that aren’t covered by Flower Fusion felt flowers. I LOVE these flowers! I added a brad through the center of each flower and used my 1/16″ hole punch to attach them to the main image panel. I used Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie ribbon to finish it off.
