Heart 2 Heart Color Challenge

I'm getting caught up this week, and wanted to go back and work the Heart 2 Heart color challenge from last week, because I like the color combo so much: Autumn Terracotta, Juniper, and Bamboo.

To create the background, I took a piece of White Daisy cardstock, and then swiped my Autumn Terracotta ink pad across it. I started from the corners because I wanted to create a diagonal pattern/texture.

The two large hearts are from the Elemental Workshop on the Go set, and the small one is from Happy Clusters. The large heart is Goldrush cardstock stamped with Autumn Terracotta. The medium heart is paper from the Typeset Level 2 kit, and the small heart was rock and roll stamped with second generation Chocolate ink.

I edge distressed the longs sides of the pieces of Juniper and Bamboo cardstock and then lightly sponged with Autumn Terracotta. Then I swiped the short sides with the Autumn Terracotta stamp pad, much like on the background piece.

The sentiment is also from the Elemental Workshop on the Go stamp set.

This was a quick and easy card to put together, and one that you could recreate in many different color schemes. Hope you are having a great long weekend!

  2. This card is terrific. I love the way you created the background. Everything about this card is juuuuuust right. :-)

  3. Your swiped background is so pretty! (I'm afraid if I tried to recreate it, it would be a mess.) Thanks for taking the H2H color challenge and sharing your lovely card with us.
