Happy Monday peeps! Yesterday a new Operation Write Home was posted on their blog Stars and Stamps. It's a great sketch and I knew right away what I wanted to make. Unfortunately, in my eyes, it's a card fail. You know what I mean... it looks so fabulous in your head but the finished product, yeah not so much!
Don't get me wrong, I really like the way it turned out. And I know
someone will love it... I just don't love it. The brightness of the yellow just isn't workin for me. I'm not a Bold color person. I'm more of the Softer Vintage color type. Sooooo, this card really pushes me out of my comfort zone. Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and go for it.
I got the focal stamp, and other kitchen related stamps, back in the spring. The background stamp on the yellow has a repeat pattern of rolling pins, measuring spoons, and measuring cups. I used a slightly darker shade of yellow ink and it helped tone down the plain yellow cardstock. It's not very noticeable but it works for me. Of course I had to get the utensil brads because, well... I loved them!
