Color Coordinates: Celebrate


Welcome everyone! Are you ready for a bright set of colors? I don’t know about you, but I’m all about Spring and sunshine right now. I have purple tulips blooming in the garden and they are my inspiration for this Color Coordinates Recipe.Color Coordinates, Shari Carroll

I’ve channeled my inner Laura Bassen to create a yummy, bold and beautiful stripe background as a setting for some spotlighted flowers. I used the Tim Holtz Brushstrokes stamp set with Hot Mama, Hydrangea, Wisteria, Scuba and Green Apple inks from Simon Says Stamp.

To add a little spunk and dimension to my card, I used the Tim Holtz Tag Press to spotlight the flowers blossoms. These are easy to use and become an embellishment on their own.
