Stretching my comfort zone....

I am really trying to work out of my comfort zone so that I can grow as a stamper. I don't usually use bright colors in my designs but I wanted to experiment a little bit so I picked out the brightest colors of my image to use as my background colors. I love those colors together but I'm not sure if it works with this image or not, what do you think? The "table" that I used for my flowers is actually part of a window stamp by DRS designs. I love how well it worked!


Supplies: Stamps-DRS Designs window, Blooming with love, PTI limitless labels. Paper-Non SU blue, white, Real red, Summer sun, basic black. Ink- black stazon. Accessories- copic markers, brads, dimensionals, cuttlebug.

You are BRAVE to try things outside your zone. Usually when I do this -- then end up in the bin. LMBO! Anyway, this is fun! You did awesome!!!

I love your bright colors! It is so happy! I used to be an Earth Elements girl only, and then I somehow became a Bold Brights fan! It's fun once you get used to it!

Love the bright colors, and it is so strange to see a card without your signature corners!!! But I like it!
