The new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays is to make something using a colour blocking technique. I suppose we all have done some colour blocking in our past, but I just never knew it actually had a name, so when I posted my PDCC card about 2 days ago I did not know that I was using this technique, and then bam, on Friday that is what is posted as the challenge! Weird!
So, here is my take on it, and NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT, I am NOT in the Christmas mood, I simply wanted to use this stamp!
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain & Antique Linen DI
Stamps: Needles & Cones (Hero Arts LL605); Old Letter Writing (HA S4878); PTI Tiny Tags
Other: PTI Tiny Tags Die; Gem (HA)
I stamped the various images on some rustic cream cardstock with black ink and clear embossed, and then inked it up with the three different orange shades of distress inks. I splashed some water onto the panels a la Jill Foster! The strip in the background is the Old Letter Writing stamped in Walnut Stain. I wanted to add a small sentiment but not take away from the stamped images, so once again I relied on my trusted Tiny Tags from PTI. If you don't have this stamp set and matching die, I highly recommend it!
It's a little bit of a longer card, (10.5 X 16.5cm) because those needles & cones images are about 5 X 5cm ( 2' X 2").
Thank you for popping in today! Have a great day!
