The colours are a favourite combination: Rich Razzleberry with Old Olive. You just can't go wrong with these! And to add a little twist of interest I stamped the sentiment in Not Quite Navy. You could have lot of fun experimenting with different colours - why not consult the Colour Coach for heaps of ideas? This is a swatch book of all the Stampin' Up colours, with suggestions for toning and contrasting colour combinations - a very useful little tool at only £13.50.

The sentiment is from the wonderful Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. I know I'm always saying this, but sets that contain sentiments are worth their weight in gold - a collection of sentiment stamps is invaluable!
This is the simplest of cards to make but is so effective. You can use almost any plant image in this way: coloured with markers to make a multi-coloured image, stamped off the edge and with a contrasting sentiment - and it works with lots of other images too!
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut a 9cm x 18cm piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Score and fold in half to create a card base.
- Use an Old Olive and a Rich Razzleberry marker to ink up the plant image and stamp off the edge of the card front. Repeat the inking process and stamp again.
- Use a stamp-a-majig to stamp a sentiment in Not Quite Navy ink.
Stamps: Nature Walk, Pocket Silhouettes (sentiment)
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Card stock: Very Vanilla
As well as crafting inspiration, I do like to offer a bit of fun on these pages but the smile was well and truly wiped off my face today when I visited the dentist. I was handed a hefty bill for the privilege of hearing that I'm going to need some work on my teeth that's going to cost... another, even larger, hefty bill! But worse than that is the idea of heading into the Easter weekend only able to eat on one side of my mouth!
I'll be back tomorrow with some last minute Easter projects for those of you with the scalloped envelope die. And if you haven't already got it, do come and see how versatile it can be!
Thanks for dropping by today and hope to see you tomorrow.
