Hello there! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We spent the day with some dear friends of ours, enjoying a wonderful meal and watching the Seahawks game. I couldn't ask for a better way to spend the holiday.
On Wednesday, before spending the evening in the kitchen, I had a chance to create a card for this week's ColourQ challenge:
A few week's ago I purchased six of the Wplus9 die inks that were released awhile back. I love how they stamp, and I'm very pleased with the coverage, but they are definitely lighter than the ink pad lid shows. I thought the orange and green were a close match to the inspiration colors, but they are quite a bit lighter after the ink dries. My card isn't an exact match the the color swatch, but I'm still happy with how it turned out.
I created the chevron background using CAS-ual Fridays' Zigs & Zags stamp set and my stamp press. This little tool has been used a lot lately... it's perfect for lining up background stamps. The flowers and leaves are from Papertrey Ink's Friendly Flowers stamp set.
That's it for me today! I'll be back tomorrow with the next Retro Sketches challenge, and a card for inspiration. Thanks for stopping by!
