Cards in Envy Challenge: Favorite Color Combination

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge .  This week our theme is use your “Favorite Color Combination.”

As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.

For today’s card, I chose the colors pink, yellow and black.  For the focal image, I used a Technique Junkies April Release stamp called “Life is Tough“, which I heat embossed with white, then applied Distress inks in a favorite technique called Distress Stain Dip, which can be found on the “Artistic Effects” CD at Technique Junkies. To add depth, I ran the entire card through the We “R” Memory Keepers Geometric embossing folder and applied additional Distress inks over the top.

Hope we’ll see your “Favorite Color Combo” cards over at the Cards in Envy challenge.  You have until May 28th to enter.  If you love this stamp, I have a coupon code for a 10% discount at Technique Junkies: TJ10Kathy

  3. Kathy, Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s always good to hear from you, and I’m glad to hear all is well. I, too, miss seeing your SAS4Kids creations. But, at least I get to enjoy your CIE cards. Take care. 🙂
