When I look at Raspberry Fizz, my first thought is, "Dawn McVey". I thought it was about time I tackled the very well recognised Dawn's colour combos (to be honest - because I got stuck and needed something a little different). She's such an inspiration. I could go on a bit more, but I think I'll stop here, because I don't think you need me to reinforce this well-known fact ;)
So here are a couple of cards I made for a custom order (did I ever mention I managed to sell a couple of cards? Totally excited). Anyway, this lovely lady asked me for another card for her niece so I was throwing around some ideas, and had that "light bulb moment".
I must have known she'd buy two in fact (she had a second thought and bought one more for her daughter too), because I just made two in different colours. And it was time to go back to my famous(?) windows with PTI stamp packaging :)
I kept it fairly simple. I was specifically asked to have numbers on the cards so By the Numbers dies featuring yet again. I added a bit of glamour with rhinestones over the Fancy Flourishes (and don't they just bring out those flourishes?) and a bit of glitter under the window (in that rim around the circle).
Some close-up views for each card.
And here's another card with more of Dawn's colour combos - Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate and Aqua Mist.
I felt a little bad yesterday not having used my Cupcakes Collection for a while. So I got it out. But I still can't seem to get that nice combinations to make the cupcakes look really awesome :( Maybe this will be my new excuse for more inks... haha (mind you, I'm in desperate need for a chocolate ink. My SU! Early Espresso is far too dark...)
Btw, there's a bit of Tin Types impression over the Raspberry Fizz card base, but I doubt the photo does justice to show it.
Anyway, I'm going to make a dash now! My PTI October release has touched down on my doorstep this morning and I want to play with my Tremendous Treats and In the Meadow sets, not to mention the Front & Centre die! Oh this is going to be good!
Thanks for coming! :)
