Mike needs a love seat for his office, so we went furniture shopping today. The first thing I realized was people must have really, really long legs these days. If you sit all the way back, your feet kind of dangle off the edge. I guess that’s why they all had 10 pillows on them. Another thing I noticed was all the Lucky Limeade in the patterns, so I got a lot of inspiration from the furniture store. There were some great combinations – Lucky Limeade/Sahara Sand/Always Artichoke. Lucky Limeade/Rich Razzleberry. And my favorite, Lucky Limeade and Chocolate Chip. (I’m thinking a limeade and chocolate chip cookies sound really good right now. Stampin’ Up!® needs to have color names that don’t inspire me to eat.)
Stamps: My Friend; Ink: Lucky Limeade classic; Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip stampin’ write markers; Paper: Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, First Edition designer series paper; Other: Chocolate Chip dotted scallop ribbon, Everyday Enchantment brads, stampin’ dimensionals
This was a sketch challenge on our demonstrator forum. It works really well with this stamp set and color scheme. I inked the flower image in Lucky Limeade, then used a Chocolate Chip marker to add some color. For the “my friend,” I inked the whole stamp with Lucky Limeade, then colored over “My Friend” with a Chocolate Chip marker. Easy!! The little butterfly brad from the Sale-a-bration ribbon & brad pack worked really well with this sketch, I thought.
