Runway Inspired #27, The Paper Players #128, Unscripted Sketches #193

Couldn't pass up participating in these....

This week's inspiration from Runway Inspired Challenges:

Plus these colors from The Paper Players:

Base on this sketch from Unscripted Sketches:

Equals this card from me:

I used a blender pen and ink pads to color in the flower stamps, it gives it kind of a water color look.  I'm sure I'm not the first one to come up with this technique...but I started doing it any time I didn't have a marker in the color that I needed.

I once again combined inks, this time to come up with a color close to Daffodil Delight.  I inked up with More Mustard, tapped it off once on scratch paper, than tapped it onto Barely Banana.  Not as close to the real color as I would have liked, but it worked.  It probably would have been closer if I had used So Saffron, but I can't find mine.  I'm sure my 2 year old knows something about that.....

All Supplies are Stampin' Up!:

Cardstock - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Stamps - The Art of Life, It's Your Birthday
Ink - Basic Grey, Pacific Point, Early Espresso, Barely Banana, More Mustard

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!
