AmberInk. Is Blog Hopping!

The Torchbearers past and present from AmberInk. have gathered today to bring you some home-cooked fabulousness! We've all created a "seven course meal for two". What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means there are seven procedures on each card, and two colors (with maybe a hint of a third) - get it?
I'm going to admit - this was hard for me! But then I realized brown and blue were only two colors, but I could use them in as many shades as I wanted (I'm all for stretching the rules when I need to!), and I was off to the races. I used the lovely lady from You're the Perfect Package on my card. I love her. Who doesn't want to look that good while wrapping presents?? Here's my menu: 2 cardstock layers, 1 piece of patterned paper, 2 oval nesties, 1 bit of ribbon, and 1snowflake embellie to top it all off.  Voila! 7 courses for 2 people! ( had to do the math like 4 times to make sure I got it right - hahahahaha)

Be sure to head over to the AmberInklings blog to see what awesomeness they've got over there. And head over to all of these Torchbearer blogs to see who else cooked something up for you - they are color coded to see who belongs to what line of torches!

What a stunner! The color combo you used is amazing (I've been looking for colors to re do my bedroom and I think I've just found them ;)
Your execution is perfection. It really is the perfect package.

I would never know how to think those colors together without a sepia filter. You are a color work of genius. This is such a class act.

You're right... sometimes we just gotta "BEND" the rules a little... and in your case, it was certainly worth it!! Your image is colored beautifully! I love that hair color!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I love how you used the 2 colours rule, perfect. And I'm sure you had me in mind when talking about how perfect the image of present wrapping, all together young woman. No, really.
