And here is my layout based on the color combo:
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants, Bo Bunny, Echo Park; Letters: American Crafts; Leaf Embellishments: Little Yellow Bicycle; Other: vellum, Slice Elite, black pen, typewriter
A quart of orange, a pint of green and a touch of black. While this is not a direct scraplift, the design inspiration is influenced heavily by Nichol Magouirk and her From Start to Finish series over at Two Peas In A Bucket.
My new Slice Elite cut this flower in no time. I can't believe how much better this machine works than the original! The diagonal stripe repeats the pattern found on the green paper.
Journaling reads: "We were so surpised to discover this next of duck eggs in the flower bed next to the garage. We watched the mallard diligently tend her nest for the month. The day the eggs hatched, she whisked the babies away before we knew where they had gone. We were relieved to see the little family the next day in the retaining pond at the end of our street. Guess we had grown almost as protective of the brood as the momma duck!"
I used the vellum to subdue the orange patterned paper and let the other elements pop - another tip I learned from watching Nichol's videos!
Love this photo of the baby duck, just a few hours old, peeking out from underneath its mother. I cropped the picture to form my visual triangle of circles.
