I love the bright, bold colors chosen for this week's Color My Heart Challenge: Gypsy, Lagoon, and White Daisy. And I love the idea of combing bold with "Delicate" which is this week's Addicted to CAS challenge. I put the CTMH Artistry cartridge back to work for this card:
I forgot to measure, and I don't have the card to do it after the fact, but I think the squares are 1.25" square, so the color blocking is 2.5x2.5" mounted on 2.75x2.75" White Daisy base. The trees were cut with my Cricut, glued down, then painted over with shimmer paint although you can't see it in the picture. The sentiment is from CTMH "Shower Flowers" stamped in Gypsy then trimmed down after the fact to get the thinnest possible strip. It would have been fun to let the edges of this hang over a bit and snip a "V" in each end, too.
After the center block was done, I mounted it on a single layer of foam tape and attached it to the card base. I'm a big fan of the white on white mounting because it adds interest without adding bulk. I can easily see this with a second, thicker white mat similar to how I did this card.
A writer friend was recently nominated for a RITA award. She gave me credit in her "Acknowledgements" for helping her brainstorm the book. I was touched because I felt like I did so little. This card is for her.
Until next time,
