I coloured this image from Joanna Sheen's Country life collection stamps, a couple of week's ago. (Using Promarkers of course!) I thought I would use it on a card for my sister-in-law, but had no inspiration as to exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Yesterday we went to a DoCrafts event locally, and I bought the current "Goody Bag" - everything in it was colour co-ordinated in yellows and oranges. Not colours I would normally use. I decided they would be a good foil for my coloured image.
Base card is a cream 6" scalloped card from CraftWorkCards. I decided to turn it into an easel style card. I cut out the image with a nestability and also a larger piece of one of the orange papers from the pad in the goody bag. As there were also matching brads etc in the kit - I used those too.
The base of the card uses another paper from the pad, a piece of spotted orange ribbon, matching ready-made bow, and a couple of flowers with a bronze gem in the centre. The easel "stop" is a tiny matching orange spotted button - again all from the goodybag kit!
I also bought some rather nice white Happy Birthday peel-offs yesterday - and have used one of these along the ribbon.
As I said earlier not colours I would think of using, or even buy if I saw them on sale, but it was a pleasure to have all the co-ordinating bits and pieces to hand, and choose what I wanted to use. I hope any future "goodybags" are colour co-ordinated in this way - it would be a really great idea.
