Simple Joys


AT LAST!

I finally carved the time to play my favorite challenge:
Color Throwdown

They always have fabulous color combos, and a super talented team!

The throwdown challenge (CTD183) can be found HERE.

Here is my card:

I have to say, Bristol paper is my new best friend.  I have started using Strathmore 300 series Bristol smooth paper for markers, and I LOVE IT!  I know most folks use Neenah papers, but this paper works in my budget a bit better (thanks to coupons and art supply stores).

The sentiment was done on my computer.  It is Century Schoolbook  12pt.  I tabbed in between each letter so I could cut them apart this way.

Ingredients:
  • Stamps: Juniper and Jupiter Swingers exclusively from Starving Artistamps;
  • Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth; My Mind's Eye Gertie (the Baja Breeze layer); Kraft; light Kraft die cut scalloped rectangle and Really Rust Cardstock;
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Adirondack Pigment Snow Cap;
  • Accessories: Computer/printer; Martha Stewart double edge punch; foam tape; Copic and Shin Han markers; sandpaper;
I hope you have been enjoying these Juniper and Jupiter as much as I have!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog!
