It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for a color challenge at The House that Stamps Built.
The Challenge is open through Tuesday, March 8th and there is a $25.00 prize for our random winner. You don’t have to use Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you do, an extra entry is waiting for you.
Now let’s get started with the colors we choose this week:
I began by stamping my card base with Versamark Ink using the “You Cling Set” to create a subtle background. For my focal image, I used “Cool Treats 9008-N” which I stamped on colored card stock for the ice cream and kraft card stock for the base. To add the “sprinkles” I used “Random Dots 3404-C”, which is a great stamp that can be used so many different ways like dirt, snow, sprinkles, etc. The frame was created using a My Favorite Things die that was embossed with a We R Memory Keepers folder. For my sentiment “Chill Out 9103-D” was a perfect choice.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with in your color challenge for What If Wednesday at The House that Stamps Built
Hey there Junkies!
Today I used “Tulips #S662”, “Veiled Woman #SSD658” and “Classy & Fabulous #SDX070” to create my card. I started by making two panels with different techniques then combining both. The techniques I used can be found on the “Bodacious Backgrounds CD.” The rainbow panels use the “Irresistible Rainbow Technique and the middle panel uses the “Brayer Resist” technique with Kaleidacolor Ink in Desert Heat.
To color “Veiled Women SSD658” I stamped her with Archival Ink on watercolor paper, then colored with the same Distress Inks used in my background which were Blue Print Sketch, Lucky Clover, Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed, and Candied Apple. You likely noticed while the colors are vibrant, they are lighter than their normal colors because I used a glossy card stock to achieve a smoother application of ink.
I hope you are enjoying the cards the Design Team has made for the March Blog Hop. Don’t forget to take advantage of Pat’s 15% off sale on all March stamps for the next week.
Bye for now!
