Bold Baroque


Just digging into the new rubbah that arrived yesterday and lovin' this set!! This odd color combo came about because...
#1 - I was using Pale Plum as part of my ongoing challenge.
#2 - I wanted to use these yellow jeweled brads from K&Company and More Mustard matched perfectly and
#3 - I NEEDED to cut into the new in color paper... it was just killin' me sitting there in a pile completely uncut!
-
So what resulted was Pale Plum, More Mustard, Wild Wasabi and Black I wasn't sure it would work, but I LOVE it!! I used the Baroque Motif stamp set for the images and plain black ink. Plus I softened the green with the Linen background stamp inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
-
Let me know what you think of this card, and if you have the new in-colors try this color combo out as well and send me a link.

Hugs,
Michelle

I'm still having my little fling with Baroque Motifs as well, having had possession of my set for just about a week. There are endless possibilities with it.
