Orange and Blue

The challenge this week on the Hero Arts blog is complementary colors. I selected the orange and blue colors to play with.


I started with some Sizzix Stars that I cut from white cardstock. Hero Arts has a new clear set called everyday sayings which is really nice because it has a ton of different sentiments for different occassions in different fonts. I selected the congratulations because of the size and style. I stamped that all over the stars in a blue pigment ink. I also used a different sized congrats from a graduation clear set from HA too.

I sponged the edges with the Adirondack orange. The bottom half of the card is a stamp I received in a bundle from MSE. I love the uneven lines of the stripes and I actually kissed my polka dot background stamp from Hero arts to take off the ink. I had to mask and lay down each stripe individually but I really like the effect.

The top is clear embossed polka dots and sponged with the same orange dye ink.

One last question for you... This so reminds me of my brothers room when we were growing up... Do you remember the patriotic rooms? He had a red, white and blue bedroom with old fashioned soldiers dressed from the colonies.

Thanks for stopping by.
