Inspiration: A Messy Desk

Hi y'all!

Teri here today.

I am always on the hunt for interesting color combos. I scour through the magazines, check out the stores and, even, watch TV for color combos that just strike my fancy.

Yesterday, I found an unusual inspiration source - my messy desk.

I had a little pile growing on the desk of scraps and leftovers from other projects. I was cleaning it up when I pulled at a small piece of pink twill tape and a lemon cream felt button.

"Oh la la," I thought.

So, I stopped cleaning up and instead got to work on this card, using the colors of the twill tape and button as my inspiration. Much more fun, you know. ;)

The stamps I used are from Technique Tuesday's new Cute as a Button set. It's part of their Summer 2008 release.

I used pens from Copic to color in the images.

The white letter stickers are from Doodlebug.

Have a great day!
