Well, it’s true – I fell in love again – with Bermuda Bay!
I haven’t used that colour in a while – on it’s own without mixing it up with other blues and other colours in general. But this week, while playing with papers and making up samples for the new June Online Card Class, I combined Whisper White with just Bermuda Bay on it’s own, and …fell in love again with the clear, crisp look of the two colours together.
A few minutes after completing the sample card, my 12yo DD came into the room, saw the card and exclaimed over how pretty it was. Then… a few minutes after that we had a knock on the door and it was my elderly neighbour, who had called over with a gift for my newly married eldest daughter.
My neighbour lost her husband to cancer four years ago yesterday, and was commenting on how much he loved butterflies. She left little statuettes of butterflies on his headstone at the cemetery, but someone keeps stealing them. (quite a low act…)
Anyway, the card I had just created had a butterfly on it and I thought I’d duplicate the card for her just to let her know we’re thinking of her. But this afternoon, when I sat down to create the card, a new design occured to me – still using the beautiful Bermuda Bay and Whisper White colour, but a new design just for her.
Hope you like it.
