A Soft and Subtle Dynamic Duo

This week's Dynamic Duo Color Challenge is a "Subtly Yours" pairing - Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze.  I immediately envisioned a gentle silhouette scene.  I wanted it to be very small - I have lots of silhouette stamps, and the smallest and daintiest of all of them is a set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Nature Silhouettes.


Subtly Thinking of You

I added a quick "swoosh" of pink dots to to add interest, sponged the edges a little, a simple sentiment - and done!!!  This is why I love a starting point for my cards - and a two-color color challenge like Dynamic Duos is perfect!!

Here's all of the other design team members for your inspiration.  I hope you play along!!  Create your card and head back to the Dynamic Duos blog to link it up.  We love seeing your creations!
  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Nature Silhouettes and Thinking of You, Stampin' Up Itty Bitty Backgrounds for the "swoosh" of dots
  • Paper: white
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette
  • Accessories: White crochet thread, Stampin' Up Twitterpated Button Collection, Crystal Stickles
