More red and olive!

Some more of the Real Red and Old Olive samples… we’re getting to the end of them now, honest!

This first one is a really simple card, stamped in Versamark® on the top half of the background, then a simple strip of Old Olive topped with the image and a button. I made this – and a couple of others – when I laid out the Red/Olive samples and realised that Olive was taking over!

The second card is pretty much the same design, but turned on its side. I coloured the image with ink pads and blender pen – it’s all Old Olive and Real red but the blender pen allows you to create different shades.

  1. Very nice. As I've told you before, I love the colour combo and I miss our Dashing paper. BTW, you ARE allowed to say you love your own cards - because they're all fab! CC

  2. Ohh Helen, I do like these cards. But then our styles are very similar. Great work.

  3. Great card. I love this set, was the first one I bought out of the new catty. Still lovin' these colors. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
