Extravaganza Artwork....Countdown 2

Welcome to the 2nd installment of me sharing my Extravaganza Art as well as sneak peeks into some NEW product (won't have links to view but I will let you know when you see something NEW and FABULOUS!!)!

We're still using four or more colors (for some tips, click here) and on these, be sure to:
  • Use a more subdued basic color to tone down bright colors (i.e. Grey Wool and Colonial White)
  • If you're using warmer colors, throw in some White Daisy to liven things up a bit
  • If you're using bright colors and want them to be BRIGHT, pair them with White Daisy to keep the mood CHEERY!!
Here are some things I made using the above concepts....

Bright Colors (Sunflower, Gypsy (*NEW*), Pacifica (*NEW*) and a little bit of Cranberry) paired with Grey Wool...check out those JUMBO Shimmer Brads (*NEW*) and Gypsy Sparkles (*NEW*)... WOWZERS!!!  These colors were perfect for Robot Power stamp set...

------------------------
Same colors...have you noticed that some of the colors are just small punches (Cranberry, Grey Wool and Gypsy)...this keeps the eyes from popping out with sensory overload...lol

-------------------
Close-up....I was trying to show you that I cut one of our Clear Cards (*NEW*) and layered over the striped Dutch Blue B&T for a little something 'extra'...I also tried to crinkle our White Daisy Organdy Ribbon by heating it with a Craft Heater...it worked but didn't hold too well after shipping these from Texas to Utah and then from Utah to DC and then from DC back to Texas...lol
----------------------------
This was one of my FAVORITES!!!!  Colors are Hollyhock, Cotton Candy (*NEW*), Topiary, Chocolate, Lagoon (*NEW*) and Colonial White to add that vintage look.  The roses were EASY to make and you can find TONS of YouTube videos telling you how...the card base is stamped with Noted Backgrounds and sponged with Chocolate Ink...the ribbon comes from Colonial White Ribbon Rounds (lace), Twill and Colonial White Grosgrain

------------------------
Look at those pink sparkles (*NEW*)

Same colors......

Close-up of the polka dots at the bottom...the Cotton Candy circles are using CTMH's 1-1/4" punch...the Hollyhock circles are stamped, the Topiary circles are buttons from Summer Craft Buttons and the Chocolate circles are brads from Brads Basic Assortment....Chocolate ribbon is from the Ribbon Rounds.

These are all absolutely fabulous! All of your color combos pack a real 'punch' and the colors go together so well. Really love that robot card. :)
