Thinking of Spring

Are you thinking of Spring?
I know I am ...
And - lucky me - that's the theme for 
The colors are monochromatic variants of
Tangerine Tango (a wonderful and cheery color),
and is the theme for the Colour Me...! challenge this week.
Such a fun and easy card - I made two! 
I used the great sketch from the Sketch Saturday challenge ...
Stamping Tips -
  • When doing a monochromatic card, it's easy to create lighter shades of your ink by "stamping off" the ink on a scrap paper after inking up your stamp.
  • Inking up a brayer will put a great layer of color on an embossing folder.  This will let you put color and texture on your creation at the same time!  Put your paper inside - no matter which side of the embossing folder you inked up, magic happens!  This is a very fun technique that all my customers enjoy.
  • Sometimes you just have to "fussy cut" an image for your layering.  Using sharp scissors, like Paper Snips, makes that cutting super easy to do.
Hope you get inky today ~ thanks for stopping by ~
