Just for You Challenges Card
I just love the colors in this week's color challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Pacific Point, Razzleberry, and Old Olive look great together, don't they? This card is also for the sketch challenge. I flipped it up vertically and used the flower for the circle in this week's sketch.
The floral stamp set is from Hampton Arts. The detail of their acrylic sets is great and they work so well with Stampin' Up! ink. "Just for You" is part of a new SU! hostess set I just got in so naturally I had to use it.
To get the tone-on-tone design in the corner only I used a square design from Stampabilities. After inking the entire stamp, I rubbed off much of the ink from corner and the middle with a paper townel and then stamped. This worked fine since I was using Rich Razzleberry ink on designer paper of the same color. If there was a shadow left in the area rubbed off it didn't show and I got a corner design as desired.
Thanks for visiting!
