My Favorite Things Lesson #7: Complimentary Colors and Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday-July

This is my second post of the day so I will be quick. I created a card for my homework for the My Favorite Things Summer School.




I was to use complimentary colors. I chose yellow and purple, because of the feathers. I also did not do much stamping on this card because most of my stamps are line drawings and I was not in the mood to color anything.


I had created the paper for the feathers using Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord Distress Ink ages ago. I die cut the feathers, as well as the purple and yellow card stock.


I then layered everything on the card, the stamped banner and the yellow enamel dots being the last step.

Totally simple and took me less time then my usual designs. Now my homework is DONE!! Yeah!!

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday-July.


The challenge was to use die cuts. Pretty much everything on my card is die cuts!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by again today. Have a great night!!
