It's all about symbols .. and colors

Hi there,
it's Christine!

Today I am happy to play with Reverse Confetti and Hero Arts. :)

I love the "You make me smile" set by Reverse Confetti because it has lovely sentiments about smiles. And honestly - making people smile is one of my fav things to do!

If it comes to putting a card together based on a sentiment it's all about symbols - and color. What does the sentiment MEAN to you? In this case I thought that smiles remind me of anything bright, sunshine, smiling faces,... I ally wanted to create cards without black.

1)
Smile = happiness
smile = face
smile = light and cheerful
smile = easy to do


2)
smile = bright
smile = sunshine
smile = colors that make me happy
smile = eyecatching

What are your translations for "smile"? I'd love to know! :)

Thanks to the great people at Reverse Confetti, I love their stamps!


There is still some time to join the latest challenge:

We go together...

I was so happy finding out we had a collaboration with Reverse Confetti this month. I just looooove geeky stuff and I've been looking at this stamp set with a perfect saying. I wonder just how many times a day I use ctrl+c &ctrl+v? More than once, that's for sure. Geeky and romantic, perfect! I used a brush stroke heart with the sentiment and embossed it on watercolor paper and colored it with distress inks. I just love embossing resist techniques.


I made a pink and a bluish one. I like them both! They are a it smaller than regular cards to make the sentiment the focus of the card.




Thanks to the great people at Reverse Confetti, I had so much fun with their stamps and dies :)
There is still some time to join the latest challenge and it's one of my favourite themes: ombre! 


My cards was supposed to be ombre but I got a bit carried away while inking them ;)

Have fun!
