Hello everyone! I had a little time today between laundry and whatnot to get a card made for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
Check out the CTD blog post HERE <-------click! to see what the rest of the team created and play along if you'd like!
Here's what I made:
I FINALLY got a chance to ink up Simon Says Stamp's Kaleidoscope Leaves Background stamp - I have literally been reaching for it for weeks now but every time end up making something else instead LOL. Today I was determined to use it.
I heat embossed the background onto Canson XL watercolor paper with SSS's Gold embossing powder, then did my "faux watercolor" by swiping Distress Inks onto the paper and spraying with water. You never know how it will turn out when you do this and it's always fun to see what happens!
I used my Mini MISTI to ink up the large "You" from the You Matter stamp set with the 3 same Distress Inks, then heat embossed the rest of the sentiment with the gold embossing powder.
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
