Elegant eggplant & melon mambo - a new fave
Today, I have a couple of cards I to show you using a new favourite colour combo - elegant eggplant & melon mambo.
I was introduced to these great colours back in August when I saw this fab card by the always amazing Christine Blain. I'd never thought of using the Extreme Elements set for girls cards, but I loved how Christine used it & showed the pic to Cara to see what she thought. Her verdict - "That's so awesome Mum - could you make that?" So,of course I really HAD to get it! I then pretty much immediately cased it to make a pocket card for Cara's friend's 11th birthday. This was the result.
Christine for this great idea.
Fast-forwarding to September, I needed a card for another friend's 10th birthday. The birthday girl was having an ice skating party, so I thought the ice skate stamp from the new 'Jolly Bingo Bits' Christmas set would be perfect. I used my eggplant & melon combo again - this time with some regal rose.
