I caught the new colors for today's Color Throwdown #386 on Facebook yesterday, and just had to make a card last night! Lisa has picked some great colors to work with today! Here's my card...
I used the BG Small Brick background stamp from My Favorite Things, stamping on a piece of watercolor card stock with Versmark ink, then embossed with white detail embossing powder. Over that I did a wash of watercolor using Limelight dye ink. Then I used the new Twice the Thanks Die-Namics (quickly becoming my new favorite die!) and die cut twice using Tropical Teal card stock. I layered those two die-cuts for a little extra dimension. I added a vellum circle on the left side that was cut with the Zig Zag Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics, and layered over that a leafy branch from Blueprints 14 cut from Limelight card stock. And then I pulled out my always-a-favorite LJD Blissful Butterflies stamp set and matching dies, and die-cut a butterfly from Sno Cone card stock, then used my MISTI to stamp the butterfly in Sno Cone hybrid ink. A few clear sequins, and I called this one done!
EDITED: Eeek! Forgot to mention my layout was inspired by this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #165!
Many, MANY thanks to everyone who bought stamps and dies from me recently! Now if I could just find the time to get some more things listed... stay tuned! (And there are still some great items to be had... check out my sale page!)
