The Matching Game...

Good Morning once again My Friends!

I'm back this fine Wednesday with a card creation for CAS Colours & Sketches #127: Colours.

This week's colors are Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe, new from Stampin' Up just this month... okay well, I don't have those yet... hmmm.

So I broke out my ink swatch book and began the matching game... only it wasn't really matching since I didn't have much but a notion to match to... I think I've done it though!

My search turned up 3 Simon Says Stamp colors that worked out wonderfully for this mix; Mint, Hot Lips & Khaki!

The flowers look like 2 different colors, I know, that's because for the first layer, I stamped some color off before I stamped my card. The top layer is full strength and together I think they look pretty "watermelony"... yep, that's a word for today!

Simon's Mint ink is just about the perfect mint so it's very light. That being the case, I decided that the card base and flag layer would be the same Mint cardstock and it sort of brings the ink color out in real life... not so much in the picture though :(

All in all, the colors worked and the simple design keeps it CAS.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
