ColourQ | Challenge #151

The second card I want to share is for ColourQ's newest challenge, using this color scheme: 

I pulled out Papertrey Ink's Teach and Inspire set to create fun, modern card for one of the boys' teachers. I am usually drawn to more "earthy" colors, so this was a big step outside my comfort zone. My only complaint is Stampin' Up's die ink doesn't play very well with my Papertrey Ink stamps. My impressions are a little blotchy, but I couldn't find suitable replacements with other ink brands.

The pencil was colored using Copic markers before being popped up with pop dots.

Thanks for looking!

Very cool card. I love how the chevrons frame the sentiment and pencil! I most use Stampin Up inks and although I don't usually have a problem inking up PTI stamps sometimes it helps if you pat the stamp on Versarmark before you put it on the colored stamp pad. The Versamark gives the stamp a bit more stickiness for the colored ink to stick to.

Thanks for joining us at colourQ!
