just a note...

Another quick/short post with a card for CR84FN.  Love the color combo this week:  plum, lilac & green.  I didn't get a chance to make a card for last week's combo and I'm just squeaking in with this card today... got too many other things that I need to get done that involve a looming deadline!  Yikes!   Anyway, although it doesn't look like it, the typewriter and the lace actually are two different colors. I think I could have used a bit darker purple, though. The lace is closer to a lilac. The lace was originally white and I used a Copic marker, V01, to achieve the lilac color. Love that you can use Copics to do that! Stamps are from the Hero Arts Just My Type set.





Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Ink:  PTI Plum Pudding & Memento Bamboo Leaves, Copic marker; May Arts Lace, KaiserCraft pale purple rhinestones; PTI New Leaf  double stitch ribbon.

These are two colors I would never think to put together but it works doesn't it? I love it.
