Same, Same but different

"Same, same but different". Anyone who has been to Thailand will have heard this saying. For example you go to buy a certain shirt, they will offer you 2 the same colour but different pattern, thus the saying, Same, same but different. Well I've caught on to this and done 2 cards, the layout is the same but the colour is different.
The image I have chosen is from a great company called Stampavie, they have the most adorable range of stamps. These cards have been made for their SAV #08 'in the Garden' challenge. Click on the link for more info.
This 1st card is done in some old Stampin up designer papers and using their Cameo coral cardstock
The 2nd card is done with the Stampin up Bashful blue series of papers. Both cards are stamped with SU Basic Grey inkpad.
As you can see the layout is the same, the colours are different, the embellishments are slightly different but basically it's the same card.
These are 2 cards are very good examples for those of you who have a limited range of stamps. By simply choosing good colouring mediums you can alter the look of your image.
Once Upon a time I read a quote (i wish I knew where it was) "when your colouring mediums out number your stamps you are on the right track."
For those of you who just love to colour like me, you really don't need that many stamps. Because every time you change the colour you get a completely new look.

Until Next time
Inking of you all

If I get to play on the stampavie blog this week, my card will be the same, same but different, as this is the only image I have of theirs that has anything to do with a garden, lol. Both cards are adorable.Great examples of colour variation.
