There's a new color challenge blog in town called Colour Me and I decided to join in their first color challenge. I combined that challenge with another new-to-me challenge called Sunday Stamps.
There's a funny story behind this card. I was using my Charming Chevrons set from CTMH again and I lined up the acrylic stamps on my grid paper before placing my acrylic block on top. I inked up the stamps in Island Indigo ink and carefully stamped them onto the Whisper White. None of the detail in the stamps came out and I figured it was because the ink pad was too juicy. So to fix that problem, I inked up the stamps in Basic Black and over-stamped, thinking that would give me a nice two-tone look. Still no detail. It wasn't until I picked up the acrylic block to clean the stamps that I realised I'd put the stamps on upside down and I was merrily inking the back side! Doh!
I actually quite liked the resulting look so I flicked some water drops over to grunge it up a bit and had a new look! In keeping with the sketch, I hand-stitched through the centre of the chevrons.
And that's my card - not quite how I envisaged it, but I like it anyway! Thanks for looking and best wishes to the Colour Me team.
