Now onto this evening's post - this week's Color Throwdown challenge:
It took me a while with this one I won't lie. I have a lot going on (when do I not LOL! Lately it's been even more crazy on the personal front but anywho) and haven't made a card in a little bit. So I looked at this one and the ideas were not flowing like they usually do!
However I started playing around and kept at it and ended up making 2 cards:
I used the Mama Elephant Friend Indeed stamp set and coordinating Friend die that I bought not too long ago, along with a MFT stencil and some embossing paste.
I used Distress Inks to color the embossing paste this really deep royal blue for this color challenge, then pulled in the yellow with some card stock and enamel dots. I resorted to my latest favourite thing which is to sponge distress ink onto my die cut sentiment - I want to do that all the time now!
I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiments on the inside of the card - LOVE that tool - and LOVE the Mini version of it. I find myself reaching for it with nearly every card I make (and I make a lot of cards!).
To see how I made these cards check out my video below:
