Dynamic duos

A new challenge blog started this week called Dynamic Duos. The rules are that the card or project must be made using only neutrals and the two colours chosen. This week the colours chosen are Lucky Limeade and Pool Party and I was chuffed to see that as I actually own these colour ink pads.

I decided on a clean and simple card and to not use any patterned papers (mainly as I don't have any in those colours) and to make a mainly white card and pattern it using stamps from the fresh vintage kit.

The border stamp I used from the kit and stamped it in the Pool Party as graduated stripes then I stamped the main floral image in the Lucky Limeade in a separate panel of whisper white and inked the edge to make it stand out.

Finally the little gems added for the little bit of bling.
