I've said this before, but one of the fun things about stamping is that you're not bound by anyone else's rules for what colors things can be. Bright purple leaves? Sure, why not! Green-skinned witches? Totally! How about a blue tree?
I LIKE IT. Fun and different, right? So here's the Create with Connie and Mary color combo that inspired my blue tree:
I really wanted to make something with these colors because I haven't hardly touched Delightful Dijon since it debuted. But it is a fall color to me, so it'll probably get more action now.
My original idea was to stamp more of the leafy bits around the edges...
But then I thought it made my card look like it has measles, which isn't really what I was going for. And not until I saw the photos on the computer did I think that maybe I would have liked this better on a So Saffron card base. D'oh! That happens a lot, I think of something I might have wanted to do differently when I'm uploading on the computer. But a.) I'm lazy and b.) it's two flights of stairs from my computer to my craft room. So the card base is staying Delightful Dijon, but at least it doesn't have measles.
Hold up a minute...
Theeeeerrrre it is, much mo' bettah. And this time I did the little splotches more spread out instead of covering everything, and I like it better now. It's like Goldilocks, and this one's juuuust right.
