So, as you’ve probably guessed by now, the Color Challenge this week at MFP Speedy TV is to use burgundy and grey on your project.
I decided to go very clean and simple on my layout this week. (I must be on a CAS kick this week since my card yesterday was the same!) The photos I used are from an engagement portrait session my daughter and her fiance did last month. I decided not to even put a title on the page. To me, the pictures are so gorgeous, I just let them speak for themselves.
I started with two pieces of solid-color 12 x 12 cardstock. I was going to do some tone-on-tone stamping, but decided to keep the design very clean. I used the two grey frames I had cut and shown in a Money-Saving Monday Post a few weeks ago. There’s a very light pattern on it, but it didn’t show up well in my photo.
I matted the photos on some darker grey cardstock, and then used the same color for the stamp and journaling space. I inked those two pieces with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Stormy Sky. I used the Mark’s Finest Paper’s Love Remains stamp set. I stamps the rose on white cardstock, colored it with my Bic Mark-Its, and then fussy cut it. I wanted it on white so the colors would be truer than on the grey. I stamped my sentiment below and then added a block for some journaling for later.
I hope you’ll consider linking up with us this week. You have until next Wednesday at 5 pm PST. See you there!
