Pretty colors, aren't they? So I ransacked all my supplies looking for these colors, and while I have plenty of turquoise, those dark purples and royal blues are just about non-existent in my stash. I found a BoBunny Brilliant Blue Dot paper (reverse) that kind of works for the blue, but I came up empty on the purple.
I had just visited Libby's blog, where she made the most fabulous card by making her own backgrounds with an acyrlic block and distrss inks, so I decided to try that next, and go the abstract route. And I was happy to see that dusty concord and broken china were fairly close to these challenge colors, so that's the direction I started with. Since I see a bit of pale yellow in the inspiration, I also added some scattered straw to the mix. I also noticed that hand-drawn heart shape in the inspiration picture and I remembered a very similar 2006 Hero Arts stamp I just found recently. Here is my submission:
I also found some tiny heart buttons and some silk ribbon in these colors, and made my sentiment using some tiny alphabet stickers. This is waaaaay out of my comfort zone, but I like my results and had fun!
