Color Me Monday


Close To My Heart's owner and founder, Jeanette Lynton has a fantastic blog and it just got even more fantasticker (I know that's not a word but I think it sounds cool so I'm inventing a new word. I also know that I don't need a "more" in front of a word ending in "er" but again, I'm inventing new grammar laws here. It just sounds good.). Starting this week, every Monday Jeanette will be posting "Color Me Monday" which will include a great Close To My Heart color combination and artwork to go with it. I felt so inspired yesterday when I saw it that I had to sit down and create a card before I went to bed. I have included a photo here of that card. Be sure to check out Jeanette's blog (www.jeanettelynton.com) for lots of fun and inspiration, and now with Color Me Mondays.

This week's combo is heavenly blue, garden green, desert sand, sorbet, and white daisy. When I saw the combo I immediately felt calm and peaceful. So soft and relaxing!

I'm very pleased with the way my card turned out. Having a handsome son (Easton) to put a picture of on the front didn't hurt either. I love this photo. It reminds me of a Hollister ad!

Love this card! The colors are very Hollister/Abercrombie and I love the effect you did to the photo. What is that? Sepia?

I made it black and white then used my antique tool afterward. Very cool, huh!

Ann said...

Beautiful! I love the way you used those colors!

Karen said...

THANKS, Ann!

Karen, I love this card! I agree with Kori too. I also think that Easton should be a model for those companies. Actually ALL your kids should be models just like their hottie mommy.

Tracey, You crack me up. That is exactly what a great friend would say. You have proven your friendship!
