CC160

Here is my card for the color challenge yesterday -- Creamy Caramel, Cameo Coral, Mellow Moss, and Apricot Appeal. That Cameo Coral looks so BRIGHT in this pitcute -- sorry.


I colored the stamp in with my markers, then spritzed it with water, and then stamped. It turned out perfect with this stamp set. I thought it looked a little Asian -- so I wanted to make a "screen print" card.

I have been so good about cleaning up my stamp area after each and EVERY card I make. While cleaning my stamps I must have smudged some ink on my fingers, so when I moved my card to take the picture I smudged a little ink on it. (you can see it on the top right hand corner) Oh well, it is still pretty -- and it would not be hand made if it was perfect, right?

Stamps: Essence of Love
Paper: Cameo Coral, Mellow Moss, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
Ink: Cameo Coral, Mellow Moss, Apricot Appeal
Extras: Corner Rounder Punch
