How I wish I had a three day weekend all the time! I would spend it like today- taking a walk, shopping and playing in my craft room. Oh how I envy people who get to do this for a living!
OWH started a new series called BootCamp and the first lesson was today. Paula wrote a great article on color basics which is a good lesson for me, since I'm a computer geek by day.
Our homework assignment: make a card using one of the color harmonies. Here are mine:
I created the background using green & yellow alcohol inks, then stamped over it with a flower dipped in Alcohol blending solution. Sentiment is from the "Very Special" stamp set at Simon Says Stamp, stamped on vellum paper with a white organdy ribbon bow. The cardstock is a mint color that matches my background paper.
I created another glossy background paper but didn't use the Alcohol blending solution, so the colors stayed green and yellow. I loosely based this on this week's OWH sketch with ribbon & vellum paper from my stash. Stamp is from the Stamps of Life:
I look forward to more BootCamp lessons!
