I gave myself a present since my birthday was next week. Altenew was having a very RARE sale and discounted shipping, so I ordered a stamp set and the matching dies - entitled "Vintage Roses". I have been eyeing this set for a while, and just couldn't think of anything else I wanted more!
I was SO excited when it arrived. I had to play with the roses, and download and print out the "cheat sheets" so that I could create the roses correctly. OMG, which inks do I use? Which colors work best? TOO many to choose from. So, I searched google, and only found combinations of ALTENEW's inks (makes sense, right?) But, I don't own any of their inks. So I looked for Stampin' Up combinations....didn't find any! Time to get inky! Here is my creation:
My favorite combinations are the starred ones. I tried all sorts of colors together. Of course, the same brand of ink looked the best together. I know my handwriting is horrible, but you get the idea. I even tried using one ink three times (in the lower left corner) Yuck. I got so excited about my trial and error color combinations, I haven't even created a card yet! Which ones do you like?Soon to come.
