Colorful Scribbles

I received an order from Papertrey Ink this week and I couldn't wait to dive in and use some of it.  A couple of the things I received are frequently unavailable, so I grabbed them when I saw they were in stock.  Here's the first card I made, using the colors from ColourQ and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.



I wasn't going to buy Circle Scribbles and the matching die set because I thought "Scribbles?  Really?  I can draw those myself!"  But they are just so darned cool that I ended up getting them!  And as for Wet Paint - I love the font on that set so much!

For this card, I only used the dies and cut the smallest scribble out of Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade and Lucky Limeade cardstock.  The vertical panel uses the Dot Fade stencil from Tim Holtz and was sponged in Peach, Poppy, Limeade and Handsome Hunter ink in rainbow fashion.

The sentiment was stamped in Limeade and Handsome Hunter.

Thanks for visiting.

Stamps:  Wet Paint (PTI)
Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Handsome Hunter

Cheers
Karren
