When I saw the color challenge on SCS today, I knew I had to play. The colors are old olive, real red, and black! Love these rich colors! So I went to my Paper Makeup Stamps, and decided that this Smitten Snake (which has never seen ink...ack!) would be perfect for the green and his little tail is making a heart (red!)...perfect! Here's what I came up with.
Cute, huh? I decided I needed a big red heart, cut with my nestie, and then I gave it some texture by running it though the cuttlebug folder (not sure of the name of it right now) that looked sort of "scaley" to me! The sentiment (and another one) actually comes with this snake in a set. I cut it out, rounded the edges, and then sponged some real red ink around it. I originally had started to put red buttons in the corner, then remembered these red crystal hearts I had from a Valentine's project and liked them much better! The dp is from Basic Grey's Lemonade. I like the olive and the yellowish green in it...it really pops off the red and black.
So what do you think? I really like this! I now have a card to give to dh for Valentine's Day next year! (Do you think I'll remember I have it? Not!! LOL!!) Maybe I'll give it to him today. He has a project to do for my mom who keeps changing her mind and it's driving him (and me) crazy! Moms!! Gotta love 'em! LOL! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great one!
