Great Coffee

I am lucky enough that I get together about once a month to get inky with a group of very talented ladies.  Amy, Kimberly, Katie, Kathryn and Laura.  Yesterday Amy challenged us to join in on a color challenge and of course I had to accept!  I am actually making this for several challenges! (linked below).

Here is my take on these challenges:
Supplies: PTI – Tropical Teal CS, Latte Love Stamps, Heart to hear #1 Die, Melon Berry Ink; Ranger Salmon and Clover Ink; SU Dotty Angles Stamp; Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins.

So…these are not colors I am used to playing with so this took me awhile to do.  Everything just felt off while making this card.  It started out as a standard A2 size but my paper-cutter didn’t cut straight, three different times! (okay two of those were probably because of me but shh…)  It is now 4 1/4 by 3 1/2.  The stamped bottom panel didn’t want to stamp straight, I made two of those.  My tropical teal ink was too juicy and kind of just pooled altogether so I had to remake the top panel and find a close color that stamped kind of okay.

After all of that, I wanted a drink!  lol  I didn’t have one but I did come back this morning and found that I really like the card!  I am loving that top panel!  I made it by rubbing my ink pad on a clear stamping block and then lightly misting the top before stamping the paper.  I think it give a kind cool watercolor/distress kind of look.  I am also totally in love with the Tropical Teal color!

Thank you Amy for tossing out the challenge!  It totally got me out of my comfort zone, which is a good thing even if I was a little cranky about it…  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
