Color Inspiration

It's time for a color inspiration from ScrapTiffany! This week it's tiffany blue, brown and cream. Remember last week I told you about the layout that I was in love with? Well, this is it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)


For this layout I used a technique that Jennifer McGuire showed on her blog. It shows 3 different ways to use paint and one of the ways was to stamp with it. That's what I did here. I stamped a border on the brown background with cream paint. I also used the same stamp to do a border on the cream cardstock with blue paint. The mat behind the photo was stamped cream on cream and then inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I also painted the rose as well as stamp the "I DO".


Here is an up close shot of the boutonniere that I re-created. I had saved it from the wedding, Rick was the best man, and the real rose had dried out. I clipped it off and replaced it with a paper one. I added some feathers to the background on top of this plastic doily.

I hope you give stamping with your paints a try, it was tons of fun!!

Head on over to ScrapTiffany and see what the other designers did with this color combination. You can play along with me too, just email your creation to Tiffany at tiffany@scraptiffany.com

  4. This is gorgeous Kristina... funny, just last night I tried stamping with paint on Kraft Cardstock (working on Christmas Cards) and I couldn't get it to turn out ... the stamping was really uneven... I'm going to have to check out the link. At any rate, I love how you recreated the boutonniere! That was very clever! This is one of your most beautiful creations yet and your stamping with paint turned out PEFERECTLY. I hope the Bride and Groom get to see this!
