Shade or Lantern...


I found this idea and knew I had to try it! I used Pretty Peony, French Script and Canvas from SU. I stamped the image and then I ran it through the crimper. I then laid it face down on a dark ink pad so the crimps would be highlighted. I thought it looked like a Chinese lantern or a window shade! So quick and easy and i LOVE the overall look of the card! I am starting to notice that all of my cards are starting to look a little bit the same to me! I seem to love the Burgundy and Brown combo with a hint of green... So I am going to break away from this and see what i can come up with... It is hard to change when you find something that is working so well! I love the richness that color combo gives... It feels warm to me! Have a great day today and a more colorful one tomorrow... I know I am planning on it!
