In Stamping Mode

I vote, oddest color combination evaaaa!

Before I get to the oddest color combination you have probably ever seen, I'll post a little something easier on the eyes. :) You know what? Looking back on this, this probably isn't the easiest on the eyes either! Well, I wanted to ink up my new Trendy Trees stamp set AND use some new Urban Oasis dsp. I coupled this all with Taylor's latest Challenge #55
and this card was born! I'm still unsure if I like it, lol. It, at least, looks fun, amiright??

Now for, in my opinion, the funkiest colors to be put together. Imagine, if you will, Sage Shadow, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, and So Saffron as your color palette. A little apprehensive about tackling that one? Well here's what I made today! I love me some Mojo Monday so I just had to use the sketch for inspiration. Whattaya think? My mom is in town visiting and wanted a couple of birthday cards made for my aunt and a Japanese friend of hers. Now, she doesn't have any interest in stamping, but she definitely likes this Four Dolls set by Hero Arts, so I happily obliged her request. :)
