…don’t fix it.
Do you know that saying? It was popular in my family—which means we probably did things the same way over and over again.
I did a card for the SCS color challenge this week using Sherry’s “inky thing I do” technique. I liked the way it came out—so….
The same basic layout, similar stamps, but using the Color Throwdown #44 colors:
What I did:
First I stamped the sentiment with StazOn (this paper is gonna get wet so a waterproof ink is needed—and I tried stamping the sentiment last with less-than-wonderful results).
Then I stamped the flourish with Barely Banana Craft (pigment) ink and embossed it with a clear-glittery embossing powder.
For the inky colors on my non-stick mat I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Weathered Wood and a touch of Dusty Concord (just a little—it is such a STRONG color that it overpowers the Weathered Wood (bordering blue)). Following the technique, I inked the paper, and heat set it to dry.
The butterfly was first stamped on the card then on vellum and cut out.
So I am sorry if I am in a small rut (as I was finishing the card—I thought of a dozen or so ways I could have done it differently). AND, thanks for stopping by!
