Color Chemistry

Hi and welcome to Sunday!  Today has been a fantastic day for me as I was named Featured Stamper over on SCS!  This is such a thrill for me and I'm truly grateful.  Now onto my card for today.

I combined the color challenge at Just Us Girls with the sketch at Retro Sketches to come up with this card.



For the background panel, I used a new stencil from Studio Calico and I lightly pounced ink over the stencil before moving it to another position and changing ink color.  The stamped image was colored with Copics and the sentiment was white embossed.  I didn't use the ribbon element as per the sketch because I'm planning on giving this to my DH and he's not really a ribbon-sort of guy.



Thanks for visiting.





Products used:

Stamps:  Scientifically Speaking (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Wild Wasabi, Lucky Limeade, Coastal Cabana, Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Coastal Cabana, Xpress-it, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade
Accessories:  Scientifically Speak Dies, Copics, Banner Dies (SU), Lil Inkers Circle Stitched Mats, Studio Calico stencil

Cheers
Karren
