Be brave

I would like to share at:
Unity Stamps - I went with the colour combo

The Paper Players - think spring

Initially, I found this a difficult colour combo - I guess because I tend to work with darker and/or more muted colours. The more I worked though, the more the colours grew on me and reminded me of spring. I also struggled with the design and layout here, but once I added the textured yellow background panel, it started to come together more.

Unity uses the best quotes don't they???

Thanks so much for visiting! I do love reading your comments!

What I used:
stamps: Unity "The TIME is now" and "Strength and Dignity" Nov 2013 Kit of the month
SU background stamp, CTMH flourish
Tim Holtz Distress inks: Peacock Feathers, Antique Linen, Squeezed Lemon and Tumbled Glass
watercolour brush
Sizzix embossing folder
yellow patterned paper (behind main panel) - Heidi Swap "Serendipity"


  1. There is so much wonderful detail to your card! The background is amazing and the colors very spring like. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players!
