Coloring Down the Lines

Another hop today, and October is almost gone!  Wow, where did this year go?  I apologize, I lost my inspiration photos somehow, but Amanda has them, so keep them in mind while here.  Go back and refer if you need to...  Our colors for this week were Pear Pizazz, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black, Perfect Plum, and Crumb Cake.  I used the new Wondrous Wreath stamp set, and mostly cased these from somewhere.  I changed my hop card just a little, and made a fence to put my wreath on.  The other ones are just in different color schemes.  Hope you like them.  Our next stop is Helen's blog  "can't wait to see this"  as she always does something spectacular. .  Well, check back in from time to time, I am going to start putting up my Christmas Card stashes that I've been working on.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Happy Wednesday to you!  Did you have fun at Amanda's blog?  It's always a treat, to say the least.  Our colors for today were to use Very Vanilla, Crisp Cantaloupe, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, and Marina Mist.  I used the stamp sets Bordering Blooms and Chalk Talk.  The colors are all in there, I colored in my little pearls with the cantaloupe pen, and added the marina mist ribbon.  Hope you like it.  I can't wait to see what Helen made, so lets go!  Enjoy your day and the rest of the hop, and come back again to see what's here.  Carol Smith

Coloring down the Lines

Good morning ladies, and happy Wednesday!  It's raining cats and dogs,here!  And Windy!!!   A good day to stay in and stamp, right?  I bet that's what Amanda's doing as we speak.  Her blog is always fun to visit, as  you know, cause you just came from there.  Our colors for today were Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi, Lost Lagoon, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler.  I used a white background to make the colors show up nice, and used the kissing technique.  Love that, except it mixes your inks up.  Anyway, then I used the black for the Salutation from "Good Greetings" and put some "grunge" on it.  I added a cheerry cobbler ribbon to the inside for a little card to write a letter in. I so want to go on to Helen's blog, cause I missed her last week.  Let's go.  Come back next time, and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Good morning ladies, and welcome from Amanda's blog. (who by the way, has a beautiful interpretation of our inspiration picture)!  Our colors for this one was Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Blackberry Bliss, and Perfect Plum.  Lots of purples... I was at a loss for ideas, then I spied my new polymer set "Wonderful" and thought that would be just fine.  I added some iridescent ice emboss powder to it for some sparkle, just like our stone in the picture.  Let's see if Joni did something sparkly or not.   Come back again and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Good day, ladies, hope you are enjoying your hop so far.  You've just seen what Amanda made, and it it is always very special, no?  Our colors for today were Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi, Mossy Meadow, Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, and Whisper white.  I used the darkest colors for my background in cardstock, and added flowers and leaves from the stamp sets "Happy Watercolor and Summer Silouhettes".  Just add a crystal to the center of each flower.  Let me know what you think.  It's growing on me. :)  Let's go see what Joni made.  She's such a crafty girl, I know it will inspire you also.  Thanks for visiting, and come back again.  Carol
