Complementary Colors

Happy Sunday! Sadly my computer is having problems so I hope to get some cards posted today before Tom takes my computer to be fixed. I know I am going to have computer withdrawal issues. While I know I can use his computer, it doesn't have the same files on that mine does. Ugh! I hate when this happens.
Today I have 3 cards that I made for the MFT Complementary Colors challenge. I made the same cards almost but just different sets of complementary colors.


I don't have any MFT flower stamps. (I guess I need to correct that!) So I used two sets: one from Simon Says 2013 kit Life is a Journey and the other from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Flowers. I positioned them in my MISTI and then removed some and stamped one color at a time. I filled in with some tiny dots, leaves and flower shapes that were in the Simon Says set. I used distress oxide inks: Salty Ocean and Orange Marmalade; Candy Apple Red and Lucky Clover; and Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber. Each sentiment is different.


For this card I used the MFT All About You stamp set for the sentiment and then I added Wink of Stella to the "YOU." The shimmer is very pretty IRL.


This is my first Christmas Thank you card. I make these each year. I like that they are Christmasy colors but not necessarily Christmas stamps. The sentiment on this card is from the Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Flowers set.


This sentiment is from the MFT Essential Sentiment stamp set. I added some lines as they showed us in the Altenew class and I had a booboo with the black pen that left a bigger dot on one of the lines so I added the small flower at the ends of the lines.
This was a fun way to make several cards at a time and you can use them for any occasion by adding different sentiments. I had fun doing this, I am entering these challenges:
Going to dinner at a friends house this evening and playing bridge. So I have to get a bunch of stuff done this afternoon before my computer disappears. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a lovely start to your week!

What a lovely collection of cards Donna, and they really highlight how different colours change up the look of a card.
