So tonight I'm sharing with you a rejected card. That is, I submitted it to a magazine publication call and it didn't get accepted. No hard feelings here; it was only my second time trying to get published. I know I'll have a lot of no's before I get a yes. Until then, I love to stamp and share my cards with you!
I used a classically pretty color combo on this card - Lavender Moon and Spring Moss. Purple and green are just so pretty together. I love the slight pink tone in this card, too. I colored my sweet peas with Copics and really like the softness of the coloring. I deliberately removed some of the color afterwards with a colorless blender. I like the highlight it gives to the flower:
So, I have a ton to do before the summer is over, do you? I have a list of things to do this summer and I haven't even crossed off half of them! Of course, it's a list in my head, so who else would know but me if I didn't do them all?!?
