Orange, Pink and White Graphic

Today, I am free for some reason! Aha! I know why? Because weekend is going to be very busy. Having 4 families over for sunday lunch and I need to get the menu ready by tonight and buy and prepare by tomorrow. So I decided I will not stress too much today. Want a day off to prepare myself for the busy weekend. That means crafting for me. I am trying to submit for another mag call. No mojo flowing there. So I browsed and saw that The Play Date Cafe Challenge #128 has a beautiful colour combination.
I love bright colours and this is perfect to lift my mojo. I thought of doing a tie like that on the picture but I don’t like men wearing these colours. So ditched the idea. Next comes flowers but it is too easy. Then comes colour blocking. Great idea but it is easy too. Finally, I decided on doing some masking and sponging based on a clip that came on Better Homes and Gardens last night. 
Here is my card.
Cardstock: Stampers Select White from PTI
Stamp Set: Super Star from Wplus9
Inks:  Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and Archival JetBlack Ink
Accessories: Masking tape, Tim Holtz sponging tool.
I used masking tape to mask the edges and randomly in a zig zag manner. Then sponged Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. Then carefully removed the masking tape. The result is this graphic pattern. Just perfect. Love it 🙂
About this time, my postie also arrived to give me my Wplus9 and MFT packages. I broke opened the  Wplus9 Super Star set and used the sentiment on this card.
I love graphic designs and love how my card turned out. Hope you do too,
Thanks for stopping by!
