Brenda Pinnick here...Welcome to day 4 of my 7 day give-away! In case you're just joining in, Faber-Castell and I have teamed up to showcase their wonderful mixed media products for crafters, it's called Design Memory Craft and they've built the program around color - which is what I'm all about! I'm creating one card a day using both their product and products of my own- Sizzix Dies and Embossing Folders, my new stamp line and some fabric from my last collection with Henry Glass and Co., called Couleur Vie. The line is about sold out, making way for my new collection to debut soon. It's pre-selling right now at the International Quilt Market and should be in stores by late June or early July. I CANNOT WAIT to show it! And yes, it is COLORFUL!
Each day, we are giving away a prize to one lucky winner who leaves a comment of BOTH blogs and who answers the question I pose at the bottom of the post.
Yesterday's winner is - Molly Smith! Molly, congratulations and thank you for joining in! Please send me an email with your address. Molly won a set of two Embossing Folders from my Sizzix collections, seen here. (type my name in the search to see all of my current offerings).
Here is today's card
Sometimes it's nice to make a fun, simple, easy card, especially when pressed for time, which, who isn't?
Here's what I used:
For the papers, I used a soft, metallic gold wrapping paper. For the fushia, I used silk, cut from a Goodwill find then backed with medium wt. interfacing. I cut three layers total and highlighted the ends of the fushia silk with the gold Gelato. I also used it to highlight the embossed flowers. Finally, I used a Pitt Pen to darken the insides of the flower so they would stand out.
And now, for tomorrows prizes- This little set of dies. These are small little layering flowers which can be used for just about anything, including jewelry. Go take a look at the adoarable bracelet Beth Reames made using these dies! Wow! And, from Faber Castell, an awesome prize which includes:Neutral Palette Ink & Aquarelles Set, Neutral Brush Pen Set, Black & White Gelatos
Here is today's question- When making purchases, how important is color in your buying decision? Do you feel you're influenced by color to make a purchase? A lot, somewhat, hardly or never ? If you can give an example, I'd love to hear it!
Remember, you must leave your comment of BOTH blogs, here and on the my blog. Good Luck!
