Freshly Made #75 and Dynamic Duos #41

Well I'm slowly but surely getting my mojo back! (I think, anyway.)

Last night, I spent some quality time in my Fortress of Solitude and it was fantabulous. For those of you who know me, quality time means QUIET time. It's thoroughly enjoyable, as I am an introvert of epic proportions!

I paired the Freshly Made sketch with the colors from Dynamic Duos.  I struggle with color challenges lately! I can't seem to get there for some reason and I'd like to get it in gear. :) This one came easier with the blues, probably because blue is my favorite.


I was also glad to finally find some inspiration to ink up my new CTMH "Be Still" stamp. I was SO excited when my order came in the mail with this stamp but that's been close to two weeks ago! It came in and then I was stumped. I had four new stamps in that bubble mailer that made me feel like the "King of the World" and then I have barely (if at all) used them. It's shameful.

My patterned paper panel is from a 6x6 paper pack, My Mind's Eye "All Is Bright" collection. I stamped the sentiment in Twilight blue ink on vellum, framed it with Twilight blue patterned paper (CTMH). The silver bow is a Hobby Lobby find. And, if I do say so myself -- I LOVE how the dressy stick pins (CTMH) look with the blue and the silver bow. The silver colored adhesive pearls are from Doodlebug Design; also a Christmas collection. I'm really robbing the Christmas stash these days. I love to make genre specific fit other genres.

Here is a close-up of the sentiment. It shows up better in person!

Thank you for visiting! Pin It
