Color Challenge Wednesday No. 30 – A Muse Studio—Mermaid, Sage & Apricot…


Such a fresh, happy color scheme…pulls you right out of the winter doldrums with the colors of grass, sky and sunshine!

For this card I chose a base card in Mermaid with a surface panel in Sage. I stamped some flower images from the Beautiful Botanicals 2 stamp set in both Sage and Mermaid inks on a sugar panel and then the sentiment was stamped on a strip of Apricot card stock in black ink. The sentiment comes from the Love Machines stamp set. You’ve probably noticed this one a lot lately… I like the clean font style and I’ve been using it on lots of cards!


The crowning touches are a bit of twine tied in a bow and a dash of glitter on the stamped images using my Quickie Glue Pen and some prisma glitter. The glitter really creates a WOW factor on this one and its such an easy way to bring any card design up a notch. I hope you’ve enjoyed a bit of color inspiration—give this combo a try!

Until next time…
