One of my Favorite Color Combos

Hello! Thanks for stopping by today.

I used to be the Mad Swapper - would be in just about every known swap possible. That has since dwindled with the rising cost of postage. But there were a few swaps that were simply kits. Awesome idea! Anyway, I have received some super awesome kits and I've not played with them. Yesterday was such a non-creative day for me. I've been sleeping in later than usual and if I'm not up early, it's hard to be motivated the rest of the day. So at 10:00 last night I was making a card to have something to post. I pulled out one of my kits and used the sketch from Our Creative Corner.

I apologize for the picture quality. My studio isn't done and it's pretty overcast outside. Not great conditions for picture taking.

The card kit featuring one of my favorite color combos included this great image and paper. The tiny flowers, too. I colored the sundae with Prismacolor markers. When it came to the glass, I swirled Light Mocha and Light Cerulean Blue together and then came back with the a colorless blender to lighten the colors up so that it appears there is chocolate ice cream in the glass. The sentiment is from the brand new stamps from CC Designs. In fact, I think yesterday was the last day to purchase the Autumn Kit - it's amazing!! Now they won't be available again until September 1st. Although I just looked at the All That Scraps website and it looks like there are still 18 available and the button isn't disabled.

Again thanks for stopping by, your visits mean a lot to me.
