It’s not quite Fall in Atlanta, but it’s starting to feel like the season change might be just around the corner. Nothing is better on a cool, Autumn evening than a hot bowl of spicy chili, a warm cup of Earl Gray tea or sitting on an ice patch with a winter bunny to share a cup of cocoa. These are the images that immediately pop into my head when I think about the cool nights ahead.
Here’s a sweet 5″ x 5″ card to celebrate:
As I mentioned yesterday, I am challenging myself to design without Baja Breeze for at least a week. This is Day 1 of my No Baja Breeze Challenge. I reached for the Baja Breeze seam binding, and I thought about incorporating a Baja Breeze border (but opted for the Pink Pirouette instead). It was difficult, but I made it through Day 1. Looking forward to Day 2…
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- Keep it soft with a blender pen. To create the softest touch of color, lightly tap a blender pen into the ink (pressed onto the lid of the stamp pad) and then dab it off on a scrap piece of paper or grid paper. Keep wiping until you have a faint bit of color on the blender pen, and then paint away.
- Limit the colors if you want to achieve a soft look. I think the bunny and friend are all the sweeter because the colors used to paint them are limited to pale blue, pale brown and pale pink. I used faint tracing of Midnight Muse and Soft Suede, combined with (already light) Bashful Blue and Pink Pirouette).
- Stacking the Window Frames. These frames were designed to stack. They’re just too cool to not. When adding the layers, I lined up the pointed corners that make a square behind the rounded corners. It was easier for me to line things up while squinting to see the square. I’m cooky like that.
