clean and simple monday is hot!

This weeks clean and simple Monday challenge at  SCS is to use the colors daffodil, poppy, peach and white.  When I pulled these colors out I thought – hot!!    They’re bright, cheery and remind me of summer.  I hope they will bring a little warmth to wherever you are! 

The first card uses a stamp that I have always had trouble coloring, but absolutely LOVE it just stamped in color with no additional coloring.  The image is this beautiful Peony image (from Flourishes).    I started by taking a piece of daffodil paper and stamping the text background in peach. Oh yes, that text background – from Papertrey?  I could probably use on every card and never get tired of it!   The trim and button are from my stash of “stuff” and I have no idea what brand they are.   I sponged the edges of this panel in peach as well and stamped the Peony in red over the text.   The base card is daffodil and I sponged a bunch of peach along the edges.  It really changes the look of the daffodil cardstock and reminds me of summer sunsets.

The next card uses the same colors but has a completely different feel – much cleaner.    I stamped the flower (from the Autumn Leaves Flowers set) in red and colored lightly with both daffodil and peach.   The pearl in the center of the flower was colored with a peach copic marker.   I drew a line with a multiliner and stamped the sentiment (from Mark’s Finest Papers) in red as well.  This panel was mounted on peach and red and attached to a daffodil card base.     So you see – these same colors provide very different looks!

Thank you so  much for stopping by today.  I hope you will join us this week at the clean and simple challenge at SCS!!
