I took some of the guess work out of deciding what colors to combine by using a set of coordinating ink cubes by Hero Arts called “Summer Splash.” The ink colors in the set include all of the inks you see on my card: Tide Pool, Butter Bar, Orange Soda, and Soft Granite.
I started out with a white stitched die cut rectangle, and I stamped the paint stripes, ink splatters (from “Happy Art”), and stars. Next I added the main sentiment in Soft Granite ink. I filled in the blank with the word “sweet” from the adorable “Sweet Pea” set and used the swirly underline from the same set to highlight the word “really.” Some of Lisa’s “Sweet Pea Sequins” finished off the card.
I mounted the white rectangle onto gray card stock before adhering to my tide pool card base. I am happy with the general sentiment on the card front…this way I can add a more specific sentiment on the inside of the card when I need it. This could easily be a birthday card, a thank you note, or even a thinking of you card.
I do hope you have enjoyed my card…now it’s your turn to get your Precious Remembrance Shop stamps out and play! Have fun!
