Going Places With Kara

Hi! Kara here. It's the middle of winter here in the Northeastern US. I think that's why I'm gravitating towards these tropical blue/green colors. I used Siren Song, Ocean Drive and Sea Breeze dye ink for my background.

I alternated between these three colors while stamping the square and rectangle solid stamps from Greetings & Salutations. I stamped them in a Tetris like pattern, fitting them together to create a full background.

Once that was done I stamped the sentiment stamp, from the same set, all over. The pattern is bright and busy, but I like it! It's the perfect excuse to use uncolored die cuts, In this situation the black and white stamped die cuts from Going Places stand out because of the bold background rather than getting lost in it. A little vellum helps to diffuse the focal point. I embellished the little scene with a word die cut from Hand Lettered Hello, some stars from the Starry Background Die and clouds from the Cloud Border Die all cut from black cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're weekend is off to a great start!
