Violet, Green and Orange Swap

Today I have a couple of swaps that I will post for you. These are for Inkyfunstampers.

This one really surprised me. I couldn't imagine these colors together but what the heck! That is why I am doing swaps. I want to get outside my comfort zone. Oh Boy!!

The image is from a retired TAC set called Pansies. They happen to be my favorite flower. (Along with roses and frangipani.). For the orange, I used the Pansy stamp with versamark to break up the brightness. For the image itself I used prismacolor pencils, Gamsol and spica glitter pens. I then cut it out and added to a paint sample from Home Depot.

It still looked too blah so I needed something. Ribbon didn't work nor did brads. But what a difference when I added the TAC buttons. I was happy that it came out well enough that I could send it to some one.


  1. Orange and purple me in an autumn mood...very good combinations to help us out of the box.

  2. Thanks for commenting. It sure made me think I should go to that site that has the weird combinations. I think I have it bookmarked.
