I was working on a blog post. I then hopped on over to my reading list since I haven't checked it out in ages. Then...bam a super cute challenge going on over at Color Throwdown. Next in line was another challenge, I was interested in over at Uniko Studio. Finally, a great staple of an Anything Goes Challenge over on Crafty Creations Challenge. I started thinking, how long has it been since I actually participated in some challenges? Not since November of last year! 🤦
It was time to change that. I am so glad I did because I created this beauty below. A bit of ink smooshing with Distress Oxide inks in the colors of worn lipstick, twisted citron, spiced marmalade, and fossilized amber. I then took the Unity Stamp Co.'s dogwood blossom and first stamped it in worn lipstick on top with twisted citron on the bottom. I liked that but it did not really stand out like I wanted. So I took my panel moved it slightly to the right and up. Then I restamped the dogwood blossom again in Momento's tuxedo black ink.
I struggled a bit with what I wanted to do with the sentiment. It was then I spied a scrap of vellum out on my table. I took out the latest July 2021 stamps I received with my Spellbinders Card Kit. What I have loved the most about receiving a subscription service is that I am building the catalog of sentiment stamps I have. On the vellum, I heat embossed just saying hello using versamark ink with Wow superfine primary ebony embossing powder.
I really love how this turned out. For a bit of sparkle I also added some splats of gold watercolor paint. Love how that catches the light.😃
I am entering this card into the following challenges: Color Throwdown # 653.
