FM95 Spring Colors, Fall Leaves

Today's Friday Mashup challenge involves color and a non-stamped sentiment.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with the colors "Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive".
  2. Or Make a project "Creating your own Sentiment (No Stamps, Stickers, Chipboard etc.).
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "With your own Sentiment using the Colors above".
I was trying to make a flower, butterfly, or bird card, but I just wasn't getting that Spring feeling with it being 5 degrees today.  I thought I could swing a leaf card with the color palette.

I feel guilty to make a clean & simple card... 'cause they just are too quick.  I could add an embellishment, but I think I'll be sending this card to a male, so best to leave it as it is.  See the splatter?  I tried the flick technique using an aquapainter shown at Convention on this card.

For the sentiment, I actually built the card up in MDS first and ended up printing out the sentiment on card stock.  On re-reading the challenge, I think I was suppose to type up my own sentiment.  Oops!

I also used Retro Sketch #47.

Stamps: French Foliage, Hugs & Wishes (MDS); Paper: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla; Ink: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Raspberry Ripple, Basic Gray reinker; Accessories: Aquapainter, Sponges, Perfect Polka Dot EF, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love your card Heidi. It is a clean and simple card but with a great combination of colors and textures. The splatter is the perfect touch.
