Make It Monday #214 | Stamping with Neutrals

Good morning! Today I have a card for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge: Stamping with Neutrals.

I used four different stamp sets on my card: Background Basics: Chevron Stripes, Note Niblets, Rosie Posie, and Rosie Posie Step 2. I picked up Note Niblets mainly for the sentiments. I love the diagonal stripes of the four main sentiments. 

I used three different neutral ink pads: Impress Fresh Ink in Slate for the chevron stripes, and Papertrey Ink's Soft Stone and True Black for the leaves. I stamped the flowers in Avery Elle's Aquamarine and Sea Glass. 

I had a hard time lining up the two step flowers because the pigment ink is opaque. I practiced several times on scratch paper before attempting to stamp the flowers on their matching die cuts. The leaves were a bit easier to line up, but I still practiced a few times to get it right.

That's it for me today! Check back tomorrow for next weeks Retro Sketches challenge and card. Thanks for stopping by.
