I'm super excited to present my very first project using a color palette that I've pinned on Pinterest. I decided to make a card for my mom whose birthday is this month, and her favorite color is green, so I chose this color combo mainly because it has several shades of green in it. I was also totally drawn to the zebra...I'm a real sucker for animal print!
Not only have I made the commitment to use the color palettes I have on my Pinterest board, but I also have made a New Year's resolution to use as many scraps as possible. My scrapbooking budget is already a big fat zero, so I obviously have no choice to use product I already have, but the real problem is that my boxes of scraps have gotten completely out of hand! I totally need to get those diminished significantly before cutting into perfectly good sheets of paper lol. So the card I have made is 100% scraps.
I have absolutely no idea where the embossed green paper came from...I think someone gave it to me? I inked it with Distress Ink in Black Soot and then misted it with Glimmer Mist in Pearl. The strips of gray Bazzill was also inked and misted and then I used an embossed edge punch on them. The doilie is from a package I bought out of the Target $1 bin last year, and I splattered it with Slate Glimmer Mist. I fussy cut the circle from some older Webster's Pages paper (Life's Portrait?), the green tag is from the Basic Grey Perhaps collection, and the bird is from My Mind's Eye Meadowlark collection. Even the Prima bling is "scraps"...a leftover bit I cut from a larger piece. I think the lime green paper is My Mind's Eye, and your guess is as good as mine as to the origin of the black grid paper. All in all, I'm extremely pleased with the result and exceptionally proud of my resourcefulness (and restraint) in using all scraps.
Don't forget to please comment with a link to your own project...I would love to see if anyone else was inspired by the color combo.
