If you've been to visit me before, you may have heard how hard it is for me to choose favorites, but at least this week, my favorite colors are the 2015-2017 In Colors. I don't have one favorite style, either, but I'm currently fascinated by learning to do collage style, so I *had* to order Awesomely Artistic as soon as I saw it in the new catalog. Yesterday, it was my favorite stamp set. I once again may be a little overly pleased with myself, as I didn't CASE (remember? Copy And Share Everything? we just talked about that) this card, and just made it up as I was going along:
stamp set - Awesomely Artistic; ink - Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder; card stock - Very Vanilla, Hello Honey, Mint Macaron
The dragonfly, flowers, and colors all look super summery to me, which oh-so-conveniently happens to be the theme at another challenge I just found, Can You Case It?:
Although I did make up my design as I went along, I didn't just randomly, free-hand stamp on the card stock and like it when I was done. I decided on the colors and the stamp set but I froze up, looking at the pristine rectangle of Very Vanilla. Then I thought about ICAD - Index Card a Day (I *know* - another acronym - and not a stamping/card making/scrapbooking one - but we talked about that just the other day, too). My "practice" piece was free-hand, randomly stamped, and I mostly loved it:
The one thing I didn't love was those red splatters - they kind of look like thousands of mosquitoes that were smashed *after* they attacked an unsuspecting and otherwise non-violent homeowner in the muggy Midwest.
