Hi everyone! Happy Happy Tuesday to you – hope your week is off to a great start! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for It’s A Colorful World! We’d love to see you create a project using a color combo of your choice – easy peasy this month! I was commissioned by a co-worker to create a congratulations card so I created two, a blue/green and blue/pink, for her to take her pick. She wanted both, lol!
These cards are identical except for the colors. I created the backgrounds on watercolor paper with india inks and water, drying with my heat tool between color applications. I arranged multiple stamps on my stamp platform, stamped in black ink and then again in Versamark, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I layered the blue/green panel on black cardstock.
For a little variety, I chose not to layer the blue/pink panel and just cut it the size of the card base. I stamped a simple sentiment on a layered panel on the inside, identical for both cards. Loving how they turned out!
