Mix It Up Monday: Birthday Fiesta stand-out cacti

It’s Mix It Up Monday again and time for another project made with a colour combination from my latest set of In Color charts.

And, while to you this combo may look like a bit of a cop-out, to me it represents a real challenge. Why? Because I confess that I’m not a particular fan of Tangerine Tango… and I can’t stand grey. 

But I had the idea for this card so needed a strong green and this was the most suitable combo in the Emerald Envy chart. Fortunately I had just enough Smoky Slate to complete the project; I’d actually have preferred to use Basic Black but that’s just me, I don’t like grey!

I haven’t decided who will be the lucky recipient of this card yet, I have several friends who fit the bill perfectly, so will hang onto it until I need it. 

Top tip: When stamping the words, I started from the right and worked backwards. Not only did this make it easier for me, as a left-hander, it meant I didn’t run out of space.  And, although the Labeler Alphabet stamp set comes with multiples of common letters so you can stamp whole words at once, I prefer to stamp individual letters so that I can get them closer together.
