Color Challenge #50 - Jaime's Frame
For Kristina Werner's 50th color challenge, I tried something a little different than a card. This is actually a refrigerator magnet (although a rather large one at about 7" in diameter). The photo was taken last summer when my stepdaughter, Jaime, who is now a stem-mom herself was playing around with her kids, Dillon (right) and Nai Nai. Jaime is a terrific mother and I wanted to send her a little something for Mother's Day.
To stick with the brown, red, yellow, turquoise, and yellow pallete, I printed the photo in sepia. The frame is a large chipboard scalloped circle from Stampin' Up inked in Riding Hood Red and Basic Brown. Actually everything is Stampin' Up except one brad and and the tag. The largest flower is done with poppin pastels technique in Summer Sun and Ruby Red and all other flowers are stamped and cut out. I embossed one of the buttons in turqoise to give it a little more texture. This was really a fun project and a break from cards and scrapbook pages.
