Berry Sweet!


Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend, I did.  It always goes by so quickly, doesn't it?  I've been noticing a couple things have changed in my crafting 'habits'.  I've been using my copics more!  Have you noticed a slight shift in my color palette lately?  I've been definitely gravitating towards soft pastels: 


Ordinarily that Impress Strawberry would be rich red...oh boy, I hate working with red copics...so unforgiving.  I went with pale pinks...

I did use my pale grey Zig and a water saturated paintbrush to color up my skinny cardbase (5 x 3.5 inches).  I was inspired by all the wonderful Impress note cards.


Don't you love that sentiment?  That's from Impress too.  For non-locals, if you every visit Seattle you need to pop into one of the two Impress locations.  They have the best products AND inspiration...seriously.  I know how lucky we are to have such a wonderful brick + mortar shop.

I was inspired by the Color Throwdown:


Thanks for stoppin' by and have an awesome week!
