Groovy Tangerines??


Simple cards appeal to me lately. Maybe it’s because of the chaos in my life right now. But simple can also be pretty. Last year (2008 actually) I did a project with my neighbor’s Brownie troop and we used SU’s Tangerine Tango. Not exactly my favorite color – but I have a bunch of it.

I paired the tangerine tango with SU’s now retired Groovy Guava for this card. I actually like the look of these two colors together.

I used PTI’s Guide Lines for my background. I really like this set, but so far haven’t found a design where I like the lines from this set showing boldly so I stamp my lines with Versamark, then stamp my image with ink that matches or compliments my cs.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!

I love the color! thanks for the tip about the Versamark with the guidelines set, I haven't done that and will have to give it a try, I like it better the way you did it than with the bold lines.
