Eclectic Friend

Mornin', y'all!  A week ago I was talking about how I hadn't used Flirty Flamingo too much, and it occurred to me yesterday that I hadn't dusted off Fresh Fig in a while either.  So I set out to make a figgy card.

I think Naturally Eclectic is the only DSP I have that features Fresh Fig, so I started with that.  I was surprised how much I like Fresh Fig + Lemon Lime Twist + Soft Sky.  Sure there are other colors in the stripey DSP, but I chose those three to work with on my stamped panel with the flowers.

I used this week's sketch from the Paper Players:

Usually, I just sketch out sketches on scratch paper and take that down to my craft room, and sometimes I get proportions a little bit off working from my own copy of the sketch.  Still, I think you can see where I started from here.

Well, I'm off to try a yoga class while Ryan hangs out in the gym day care.  Wheee!  (I don't think I'm going to like yoga but I'll try it anyway.)

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Oh So Eclectic
Ink:  Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky
Paper:  Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Thick Whisper White, Naturally Eclectic DSP
Accessories:  Lots of Labels Framelits, Mini Dimensionals

Oooo, I like the figgy color!

You'll have to tell me what you think of yoga. I am not a fan. I do not like doing poses where my head is below my heart -- it makes my sinuses clog and I feel like I've snorted a bunch of water in the swimming pool. So yeah, not a fan. Supposedly it really helps build up your core. Have fun!

Yes, Soft Sky isn't the first colour I'd have thought of to go with Fresh Fig but it looks really good. I like your stamped panel using all the little doodad bits to back up those lovely big blooms. Thanks for joining us again at The Paper Players, Christie.

The colors do look good together, the lime gives lift to the fig and the blue a softness. Love it. Great take on the sketch, too. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
