Thinking Happy Thoughts


Just can't believe where the week has gone but here is my card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week: to use 3 colours...lime, aqua and navy;  Ways to Use it challenge at Splitcoast and a Blog Named Hero.  Very fun colours to work with!  I created the bkg by sponging colour onto a mask from the Crafter's Workshop then overstamping with the hollyhocks from Innovative Stamp Creations in navy.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps:  HA, ISC/ mask/ pop dots

Beautiful color blending on the dots! It's just so fun to look at. The over stamp image is perfect with it.
